BOX SCORE

PITTSBURGH --- Carlow University lost a tough 5-0 contest to NAIA opponent Concordia (Mich.) University Saturday at Highmark Stadium.

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 the shot.

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.

Carlow returns to action on the road against USCAA opponent Washington Adventist University, Wednesday, Sept. 18 at 6 p.m.
