PITTSBURGH – Carlow University men’s soccer lost a close game to River States Conference opponent Asbury (Ky.) University, 2-0, Oct. 18 at Highmark Stadium.

The Celtics (3-11, 0-7 RSC, 2-3 USCAA) gave up two goals to the Eagles (9-4-1, 5-0-1 RSC) early in the first half.

After Asbury scored in the seventh and 16th minutes, Carlow held them scoreless the remainder of the game, but the Celtics could not get a shot of their own to fall.

The Eagles out-shot the Celtics, 16-7, and held a 13-2 corner kick advantage. Asbury is currently in second place in the RSC standings behind the University of Rio Grande (Ohio).

Goalkeeper Adam Myers (JR/McKeesport, Pa.) had five saves in the complete game effort, including three diving saves that kept Asbury from running away with the game.

The Celtics host Midway (Ky.) University Saturday, Oct. 20 for an RSC game at Ambrose Urbanic Field in the Petersen Sports Complex on the University of Pittsburgh campus. Game time is set for 6:30 p.m.

The venue change is due to a Pittsburgh Riverhounds USL playoff game at Highmark Stadium that evening.
