|AMHERST, Mass. - Eleven players scored goals including two with the first tallies of their careers as UMass beat Providence, 17-3 on Tuesday afternoon at Garber Field.

Eight different Minutemen scored the team's eight goals in the second half including three with their first of the season: Mike Wilus, Colin Fleming (first of career) and Mael Walkowiak (first of career), who was playing his first game in the field after being a goalie last season. His goal was assisted by Seth Berggren, the redshirt freshman's first career point.
UMass' other second-half goals came from Ryan Smith, Ryan Liebel, Manny, Kell and K.R. Jurgelevich.
