Karina Graziani -

PITTSBURGH – The Carlow University men’s soccer team lost a tough match against USCAA opponent Washington Adventist University, 6-0, on Monday, Oct. 1 at Highmark Stadium.

The Celtics (3-6, 0-4 RSC, 2-1 USCAA) kept it close in the first half, allowing only two back-to-back goals at 40’ and 42’.

The Shock (4-3) broke open the scoring in the second half with a goal at 54’ to put them ahead, 3-0.

Washington Adventist scored three goals practically in a row at 58’, 60’ and 62’ for a 6-0 lead from which the Celtics were unable to recover.

Daniel Nicolaus (SR/Gainesville, Fla.) had a great opportunity to score from outside the 18 on a free kick, but his shot ricocheted off the far post.

The Shock out-shot Carlow 14-5. Pabeli Diafouka (SO, Pittsburgh, Pa.) had the only shot on goal for the Celtics.

Goalkeeper Adam Myers (JR/McKeesport, Pa.) made four saves in the complete game effort. Myers made a diving save at the 17’ mark, but it was not enough to dissuade Washington Adventist.

Carlow travels to Ohio Christian University for a 4 p.m. River States Conference match on Oct. 6.
