Cougars fall to UNC Greensboro

The men’s soccer team lost 1-0 against UNC Greensboro in a Southern Conference game on Saturday night at Patriots Point.

Barely 12 minutes into the first half, UNCG scored the first and only goal of the night after an opening in the Cougar defense left a wide open shot for the Spartans to take advantage of.

Minutes later Francis Twohig almost equalized the game when he brought the ball up from the midfield in a one-man play that ended in a slight miss on the goal.

Even though the Cougars came into the second half with cleaner, more fluid passes and outshot the Spartans with 10 attempted shots to their six, they were unable to tie the game.

“I do think we played a pretty good game but we didn’t have quality in the final play,” said head coach Ralph Lundy. “We held the ball all night long and made passes all over the park but we didn’t have quality around the goal.

“This is a funny game. You can dictate all the play and lose 1-0. We played a very good but needed more quality on the big play: the big pass, the final cross, the big shot; making the play. We lacked that here.

“The players who played tonight did a tremendous job. We took care of all of the game except that one segment.”

The College of Charleston will play once again at Patriots Point on Tuesday, Oc. 25 against Elon in yet another conference game at 6 p.m. Before the game on Tuesday the team will honor Will Moore, Rudi Hellberger, and Kevin Cawthon as they celebrate Senior Night.
