Record for Shots

In Saturday’s match against Torch FC, FC Monmouth registered 29 shots during the 90-minute contest, which smashed the previous record of 17, a feat that was reached in three previous games. The team also had 13 shots in the first half, which broke the previous record for shots in a single half of 12, which was set days earlier at Electric City Shock SC. FC Monmouth broke that record again in the second half, shooting the ball 16 times.

Multiple Scoring Threats

Forward Regsan Watkins scored a goal for the third-consecutive game, increasing his season total to a team-leading six. Midfielder Bryant Knibbs scored his second in as many games, and midfielder Anthony Rovito collected his second of the season. They are three of the four multi-goal scorers on the team, with midfielder Sam DeCencio being the other. The 2018 team finished with four multi-goal scorers as well.


Red-Hot Consistency

FC Monmouth has won its last three games and has scored three goals in each of them. To go along with three goals in each match, they registered at least 16 shots in each, and held opponents to four or less shots on target. During the three-game stretch, they outscored their opponents 9-4. The team is one win away from tying the longest winning streak in team history, which is four, set during the final four games of the 2018 regular season. It is, however, the first time in which FC Monmouth has scored three goals in three consecutive games.
