PITTSBURGH --- Carlow University men's soccer scored a season-high three goals, but ultimately lost, 6-3, to Ohio Christian University in a River States Conference match Saturday.

The Trailblazers (3-10, 1-5 RSC) scored in the 32nd minute to take a 1-0 lead into halftime.

The second half turned into scoring rush for both teams.

Ohio Christian went on a run early on in the half, scoring at 48', 60', 62' and 71' before the Celtics (0-9, 0-4 RSC) even put a point on the board.

Down, 5-0, sophomore Nick Sinni (Rockledge, Pa.) scored his first goal as a Celtic and the first goal of the game for Carlow in the 74th minute.

Ohio Christian added its final goal at 75' to take a commanding, 6-1, lead.

Despite the deficit, the Celtics kept up the attack late into the game. Sudesh Tiwari (FR/Pittsburgh, Pa.) scored a nice goal from way outside the 18 that sailed over the OCU goalkeeper's head to cut the lead to 6-2.

Janvier Ramson (SO/Pittsburgh, Pa.) went far post to add the final goal for the Celtics at 83', but Carlow ran out of time.

Senior Adam Myers (Port Vue, Pa.) returned to goal from an injury for his first start since Sept. 24. He made seven saves, including a few big stops to keep Carlow in the game.

Bryce Hull scored a hat trick for the Trailblazers, and the team had 13 shots on goal. They out-shot the Celtics, 29-19, and held a 6-2 corner kick advantage.

Carlow faces Point Park University Oct. 17 at 7:30 p.m. at Highmark Stadium.
