PITTSBURGH --- Carlow University men's soccer scored a pair of
goals late in the game, but it was too little, too late en route to
a narrow 3-2 loss to Brescia (Ky.) University Thursday at Cupples
The Bearcats (6-9, 5-3 RSC) took a 2-0 lead into halftime,
despite a barrage of shots from sophomore Janvier
Ramson (Pittsburgh, Pa.) at the end of the of the
first half. Brescia scored goals at 4' and 28'.
The Bearcats scored their third and final goal in the
54th minute, but the Celtics (0-13, 0-8 RSC) did not let
Sophomore Launthar Eh (Pittsburgh, Pa.)
returned to the pitch after being sidelined with an injury to score
his first goal of the season in the 62nd minute,
cutting the Brescia lead to 3-1.
Freshman Sudesh Tiwari (Pittsburgh, Pa.) cut
the lead to 3-2 on a nice pass from Elias Schoedel
(Finleyville, Pa.) at 88'. Despite a few minutes saved on the
clock, the Celtics simply ran out of time to score again.
Goalkeeper Adam Myers (SR/Port Vue, Pa.) made
seven stops in the complete game effort, and Matt
Cannon (JR/Monongahela, Pa.) made a sliding save late
in the game when Myers came out of net.
The Bearcats out-shot the Celtics, 20-14, and held an 8-4 corner
kick advantage on the night.
