BOX SCORE

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 Stadium.

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 up.

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.
