NORTON — Junior forward Avery Santoro of North Chatham scored in the 67th minute to give the Wheaton College men’s soccer team a 2-1 victory over No. 6 regionally ranked Connecticut College. The Lyons (4-1) notched their fourth straight match, and their first over a ranked team since 2017.

Wheaton was held to just three shots, including one on net in a hard-fought opening half, but were given life just seconds into the second stanza following a penalty called on the Camels inside the penalty-box area.

Wheaton freshman forward Marlon Monterroso of Providence was fouled, but then converted the penalty kick 21 seconds into the second half, bulleting a shot to the left side for his first career goal.

Connecticut College owned a 14-7 shot advantage for the match, taking the lead in the 19th minute.
