Mike Nissim-Sabat scored four first-half goals yesterday to help the Mary Washington College men's soccer team snap a two-game winless streak with a 9-0 win at Gallaudet.
Nissim-Sabat, a senior midfielder from Chancellor High School, tied the school single-game record with four goals in a 19-minute span. Teammate Marc Salotti, who also equaled the record earlier this season, scored once yesterday.
Adam Benabdallah added two second-half goals for the Eagles (8-3-2, 3-0 Capital Athletic Conference), who outshot the Bison 29-4 and had a 14-0 edge in corner kicks. Andrew Shin and Roberto Morales also scored for MWC, which plays host to Salisbury on Saturday
