WALTHAM, Mass. – The Brandeis University men's soccer team got back to its winning ways thanks to senior transfer Sancho Maroto Tobias (Acton, Mass./Lexington), who scored a pair of goals in a 2-0 victory over St. Joseph's (Maine) College on Gordon Field today.


  • Brandeis, 5-6-1.
  • Saint Joseph's, 11-4-1.


  • Brandeis got all the scoring they would need in the 38th minute. Maroto Tobias took a nice feed from sophomore John Loo (Easton, Conn./Joel Barlow) at the top left of the 18-yard box. His strike went off the right post and past SJC keeper Mike Sheridan.
  • In the 72nd minute, it was Maroto Tobias again, taking a free kick from 20 yards out. He sent it past the wall and inside the near-right post for the extra insurance.


  • Brandeis controlled play, outshooting the Monks, 18-6, including 9-2 in shots on goal.
  • Corner kicks were even at 4-all, while Brandeis was whistled for 16 fouls – 12 in the second half – compared to 10 for the visitors.
  • Judge senior Aiden Guthro (Newburyport, Mass./Newburyport) made two saves for his fourth shutout of the season and the 10th of his career.
  • Sheridan had seven stops in the losing effort for SJC.


  • Maroto Tobias has scored a brace in each of his last two games, giving him seven goals on the season. He is tied with three others for second in the University Athletic Association in goals and tied for fourth in points.
  • The assist was Loo's first of the season and of his career, and marked just his third career point.
  • Brandeis snapped a four-match losing streak, all in UAA play.
  • SJC had won seven in a row entering the match.
  • This was the first meeting between the two schools since the 2016 NCAA Division III Tournament, when the Judges defeated St. Joseph's, 3-0, in the second round.


  • Brandeis closes out their regular season with three-straight home UAA games, starting on October 28 at 5 p.m. against Washington University.
