CLEVELAND - Anthony Paris had a goal and an assist, Marco DeLauri stopped six shots, and the MCC men's soccer team capped the regular season with a convincing 3-0 win over Cuyahoga Community College Saturday afternoon.
The Tribunes will head to the postseason sporting an 8-4-1 record. Monroe will host the Region III, Division I championship against Mercyhurst North East this coming Saturday, Oct. 29, at 2:30 p.m. MCC will start postseason play on a high note, having won its last three by a combined score of 23-0.

Monroe then put the game away with a pair of goals in a span of just 14 seconds in the second half. Paris added some insurance in the 65th minute, taking a feed from Adrian Minott and converting to make it 2-0.
Paris then assisted on Vasbert Harry's goal quickly after the restart to provide the final margin.
