Chahin Aghrim and Fernando Sanchez each scored two goals to lead the Lightning to a 5-1 home win over Chestnut Hill
Junior Chahin Aghrim (Bonn, Germany) and senior Fernando Sanchez (Madrid, Spain) each scored twice to help Goldey-Beacom notch its fourth straight win, a 5-1 Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference victory over Chestnut Hill today at Nancy Churchman Sawin Field in Wilmington.
Down 1-0 in the fourth minute, the Lightning scored the equalizer eight minutes later. Aghrim took a great long pass from senior Alvaro Martinez (Zaragoza, Spain) and kicked a low shot home to even the match.
Sophomore Levi Maruca (Downingtown, PA) scored his first goal of the season, a great 10-yard shot after dribbling in, in the 32nd minute for a 2-1 Lightning cushion.
Aghrim then made it 3-1 in the 35th minute, heading home a perfect long pass from sophomore Nicolas Jaramillo (Cali, Colombia). It was Aghrim’s fourth goal of the season, his 10th career and third career brace.
Sanchez then took his turn in the spotlight, scoring in the 42nd and 60th minutes for his second career brace with Aghrim adding an assist. Now with 15 career goals, Sanchez rockets into a tie for seventh place in school history with David Nimroozi (2002-03, 2008-09).
Aghrim’s career-best five points now gives him 32 in his career, one outside the school’s career top 10 list.
Aghrim had five shots, while Sanchez recorded four.
In goal, junior Suhail Bismilla (Johannesburg, South Africa) needed just one save for the Lightning (4-1, 2-0 CACC).
For Chestnut Hill, Vini Brito and Jason Burns had two shots apiece and Frank Maniscalco played great in net, totaling seven saves for the Griffins (2-3, 1-1).
