In a grueling 3-1 loss to Binghamton at home last Friday night, Joyner netted his first goal of the year to tie the game 1-1 in the middle of the first half. Despite the loss, the Orange and Blue managed to tally 17 shots in the game, but had difficulty finding the net. During his 79 minutes of play, Joyner had two of the team’s three shots on goal.

Joyner returns this year after starting 20 of the team’s 21 games last season. As a junior, Joyner played center midfield and was an important piece of the team’s championship run. By the end of the season, he had recorded three goals and three assists and was fifth on the team in total points. With a goal in his first game, he is on his way to surpassing these numbers and leading the team to another successful season.
