Framingham State scored three unanswered goals in the second half and the host Rams avenged a heartbreaking loss to Dean a season ago by knocking off the Bulldogs, 4-1, in non-league men's soccer action on Wednesday.

In last year's meeting in Franklin, Davonn Smith (Lowell, Mass.) scored the game-winning goal in the 89th minute to secure the win for the Cardinal and White.

The Rams jumped out on the board first when Isaac DeSouza found the back of the net in the 31st minute.

Dean evened the score a few minutes later when Luke Palmer (Windsor Locks, Conn.) fired a shot from about 25 yards out and the rebound from the Rams' keeper bounced right to a waiting Paulo Correia (Brockton, Mass.), who delivered his ninth goal of the season at 36:07.

The contest stayed that way until the 72 nd minute when Bryce Nardizzi scored the first of his two goals on the afternoon in a 13 minute span that put the game away. In between Nardizzi's two strikes, Gustavo Cassemiro delivered his team-leading seventh marker of the season.

Bryce Antoch (Cranston, R.I.) turned aside a career-best 16 shots in goal for the Bulldogs.

The Bulldogs are back in action on Saturday when they host Maine Farmington on Saturday at 2:30 PM.
