THE LEAD:
Host Dean scored a pair of goals in each half and the Bulldogs cruised to an impressive 4-0 win over Lesley University in the New England Collegiate Conference (NECC) opener for both teams.

HOW IT HAPPENED:
The Bulldogs got on the board in the 25th minute when Pepe Vieira (Brockton, Mass.) delivered his first strike of the season.

That lead doubled a little more than five minutes later when Nathan Estrela (Falmouth, Mass.) set up Felipe Campos (Brockton, Mass.) for the first of his two tallies at the 29:48 mark.

Campos had Dean back on the board in the 66th minute when he deposited an unassisted score into the back of the net for his team-leading fifth goal of the season.

Santiago Cardona (Revere, Mass.) capped the scoring with his second goal of the year in the 73rd minute as the Bulldogs posted their third consecutive shutout.

INSIDE THE NUMBERS:
Dean extended its shutout streak to 329:14 as Brendan Pacheco (Fall River, Mass.) only needed to make two saves to collect his second win of the season.

The Bulldogs held a 19-5 edge in overall shots and an 8-2 advantage in corner kicks.

UP NEXT:
Dean will return to action on Tuesday when they travel to UMass-Dartmouth for a 7:00 p.m. first touch. The Lynx, meanwhile, who have lost four games in a row, visit Emerson College on Wednesday.
