Men’s Soccer Drops 3rd Straight to Presidents

The Muskies lost on Tuesday night to the visiting Washington & Jefferson Presidents 4-1

The Muskies only trailed 1-0 in the first half after Brian Hanna of Washington & Jefferson received a header from Dylan Small and fired one to the back of the net past Muskie Goalkeeper Eric Riley.

The total shots on goal between the two teams was pretty even as both the Presidents and the Muskies tallied up 8 total although Washington & Jefferson had the shot advantage 24-17.

In the second half the Muskies would tie the game off a ridiculous unassisted Austin Mills free kick from 55 yards out that sailed over President goalkeeper Jon Best.

Washington & Jefferson would respond within the following two minutes as Justin Carter regained the lead for the Presidents. It was all Washington & Jefferson from then on out as Hanna and Connor McKenzie would each tack on a goal-a-piece to give Washington & Jefferson the 4-1 win.

With the loss the Muskies drop to 4-6 and will open OAC play at Baldwin Wallace on Saturday with game-time starting at 01:00 PM.
