(MEDFORD, MA) -- The UMaine-Presque Isle men's soccer team used a strong team advantage over host Fisher College to defeat the Falcons 6-0 on Saturday afternoon.

Josh MacKinnon (Jr./Lismore, NS) earned the shutout in goal, saving both the shots on goals that he faced.
The Owls were once again without leading goal scorer Joel Massa (So./Millbury, MA) who is still working through an injury.
