PITTSBURGH - Carlow University men's soccer lost, 7-0, to crosstown rival Point Park University in a River States Conference game Thursday at Highmark Stadium.

The Celtics (0-10, 0-5 RSC), still plagued by injuries, fell behind, 4-0, heading into halftime.

Goalkeeper Adam Myers (SR/Port Vue, Pa.) came up with some great saves, stopping a season-high 17 shots. The Pioneers out-shot the Celtics, 42-10 (24-5 on goal). Point Park held a 9-1 corner kick advantage.
