Gabriel Germano’s late goal gave Maine a 2-1 come-from-behind win over Vermont in America East men’s soccer Saturday afternoon.

For the second straight game, the Catamounts took an early lead as Ethan Hutchins, on a feed from John Antonucci, found the net from 20 yards out in the fourth minute. The goal was the first of the season for Hutchins.

Shortly after halftime UVM had a pair of point blank chances to pad the lead, one by Antonucci and another by Danny Broughan, but could not find the net. The Black Bears would tie the contest in the 65th minute on an own goal. During a goalmouth scramble, a UVM attempt to clear the ball deflected past Cats goalie David Sullivan. Ten minutes later Germano, from six yards out, would get the game-winner finishing a free kick from shortly outside the penalty area by Matthew Bernal.

Sullivan finished with seven saves for Vermont while in the other crease, Essex Junction’s Chad Mungeon made two stops for Maine (6-7-1, 2-3-0 America East).

The Catamounts, now 2-8-4 overall and 1-3-1 (four points) in the conference, return to Burlington for a three-game homestand. They take on Albany Wednesday at Centennial Field at 2 pm.
