PITTSBURGH --- Carlow University lost a tough 5-0 contest to
NAIA opponent Concordia (Mich.) University Saturday at Highmark
The Celtics (0-2) put up a better showing than the score
implied. Goalkeeper Adam Myers (SR/Port Vue, Pa.)
made a few spectacular saves to keep the Celtics in the game,
tallying 12 total on the day, and Carlow was down only two goals
heading into halftime against the Cardinals (2-4).
Concordia out-shot the Celtics 27-11 (18-3 on goal) and held an
18-1 corner kick advantage.
Freshman Ian Wohlfarth (Glenshaw, Pa.) had
the best opportunity to score for the Celtics in the
42nd minute, but the Concordia goalkeeper stopped
Despite the lopsided stats, Carlow kept the score close until
the second half, when Concordia's Steven Soboslay scored in the
58th minute to give the Cardinals a 3-0 lead. Soboslay
turned around and scored another goal just five minutes later, and
the Celtics were unable to answer.
The final Concordia goal found the back of the net in the
79th minute of action.
