Gioia goal powers Canisius soccer

Canisius sophomore Alex Gioia scored his second game-wining goal of the year in a 2-1 win over visiting St. Francis. Mike Anders had the original shot and Gioia got the rebound and scored into the far post. St. Francis had just tied the game a minute earlier. It was only the third goal scored on Canisius this year.

“Alex normally plays defense, but I put him up at striker because of the energy he brings. He’s one of the hardest workers on the team,” said coach Sam Belsito.
