Pirate Attack Stymied in Road Loss to Colorado College

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - The Southwestern University men's soccer team struggled to find any offense on Friday evening as they fell to the Colorado College Tigers, 2-0, on Friday evening at Washburn Field.

The Pirates were out shot 17-5 in the contest, but held a 5-4 advantage in corner kicks. 

Colorado College put all the pressure on Southwestern from the start as a Tim Huettel goal gave the Tigers a 1-0 lead in only the 4th minute. Southwestern tried to battle back throughout the match, but could not get any good looks on the Colorado College defense all evening.

The Tigers put the game to rest in the 82nd minute at Sam Markin scored on Cam Stopforth's second assist of the game for the two goal lead which held to the final whistle.

Senior Christian Lopez, sophomore Kip Karschnik, freshman Brendan Dauth, freshman Sacco Fernandez, and freshman Luke Stanton had the only shots on the day while senior Ryan Benner finished with four saves on the evening.

Southwestern moves to 4-9-3 and 2-7-3 in SCAC play. They return to the pitch on Sunday as they travel to Irving to take on the University of Dallas at 2:00 PM.
