Batista leads Judges in winning streak

The Judges picked up their second straight win Tuesday, besting sloppy conditions thanks to Jaime Batista’s ’10 eighteen yard blast and goal keeper Sean O’Hare’s ’12 four saves gave them the 1-0 victory over visiting Lasell in their non-conference season finale.

Originally meant to be on the road, the sloppy weather forced the venue change to Gordon Field where the game took 82 minutes before leading scorer Ben Premo ’09 one touched the ball to Batista to pick up the win. The goal is Batista’s third straight goal in as many games.

Premo’s 21st career assist moves him into sixth place all time on the Judge’s career scoring list with 93 points, just one shy of fifth place held by Matt Murphy ’98 (goals are worth two points).

Brandeis outshot the Lasers 8-5 in the game though Lasell was more accurate with all but one shot requiring O’Hare, making his first start since Oct. 8 and picked up his first win since Sept. 17 against WPI.

Lasell’s keeper Matthew Bruninghaus had three saves on the night.

Having concluded the non-conference portion of the schedule, the Judges take on Emory University on All Hollow’s Eve at 7:30 and then take on Carnegie-Mellon on November 2nd for their regular season home finale.

Brandeis wraps up their season Nov. 8 at NYU.
