WALTHAM, Mass. – Junior Julian Stewart (Acton, Mass./Acton-Boxboro) scored a spectacular bicycle kick goal in the 62nd minute to highlight the Bentley men's soccer team's 2-1 win over Stonehill on Tuesday afternoon.

Stewart, who had is back to a Stonehill defender, rose up and unleashed the bicycle kick that beat the Stonehill keeper to the far post for the goal.
That gave the Falcons a 2-0 lead. They lead 1-0 at halftime after midfielder Jake Goldstein (Cheshire, Conn./Cheshire) poked home a shot off a rebound off his own shot.
