Freshman forward Nick Williams netted a pair of goals in his college debut, sparking the Black Knights to a 3-0 blanking of VMI on Friday, Aug. 30. Sophomore midfielder Nick Baietti also scored in the contest, and junior goalkeeper Winston Boldt made two saves to notch his fifth career shutout.
Manhattan, which finished 3-12-1 a season ago, will play its season opener on Monday at West Point. The Jaspers bring back 17 letterwinners from 2012, including junior Tommy Amos, who posted a team-best four goals and 10 points in 16 games last year. Senior goalkeeper Christopher Lands made a pair of starts in four contests, finishing with a 2.13 goals against average and a shutout.

Following Monday's action, Army will hit the road for the first time this season to take on service academy rival Air Force Academy on Saturday, Sept. 7. The Black Knights blanked the Falcons, 3-0, in last year's season opener at West Point.
