PITTSBURGH --- Carlow University men's soccer kept a relatively close game through 58 minutes against Indiana University East, but ended up with a 6-1 loss Thursday.

The Celtics (0-5) opened River States Conference action at the University of Pittsburgh Ambrose Urbanic Field.

IU East scored its first goal in the 18th minute. The next two goals came back-to-back shortly after in the 24th and 25th minutes to give the Red Wolves (6-3) a 3-0 lead.

The Celtics never let up, and the persistence paid off in the 39th minute on a goal by Janvier Ramson (SO/Pittsburgh, Pa.) from freshman Sudesh Tiwari (Pittsburgh, Pa.).

Down only two goals at halftime, it was evident in the second half that the shallow bench was taking its toll on the Celtics. An already physical game slowed the Carlow offensive.

IU East scored a goal in the 58th minute, and another came off a penalty kick in the 61st minute.

The final goal of the game came from a corner kick in the 81st minute.

The Red Wolves out-shot the Celtics, 20-5, and held a 7-2 corner kick advantage.

Senior Colt Zappa (Pittsburgh, Pa.) assumed goalkeeper duties in place of an injured Adam Myers (SR/Port Vue, Pa.), stopping six shots and coming up with some good saves toward the end of the match.

Carlow travels to Asbury (Ky.) University for an RSC game at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 3. Links to live coverage can be found at
