Men’s soccer ties with Colgate

Clara McCormick, Contributing Writer

On Saturday, April 3, the Bison men’s soccer team competed against Colgate Raiders in Lewisburg, resulting in a zero-goal game. Both teams were stout defensively and limited the opposing team’s scoring chances. The draw puts the Bison at 1-3-1 on the season.

Despite both the Bison and the Raiders attempting nine shots each, neither team was able to execute a successful goal.

Nevertheless, the game against Colgate was characterized by high-level performance. Bennet Schwartz ’23, earned his first career shutout, making three saves including an important save late in the match. Cody Wax ’21 led the team in shots with three.

Neither the Raiders nor Bison were able to generate much offense over the course of the match. Sebastian Paz ’24 had his shot blocked inside the box in the first overtime. Matthew Owusu ’24 came close to winning it for the Bison in the second overtime, but couldn’t get on the end of a long ball.

“Going to the game we were going to use a new formation and knew we’d have to play very disciplined. Defensively it worked perfectly and helped us get our first shutout this season. We definitely will be working more in front of goal so come Loyola we’ll be ready to give ourselves the best chance for playoffs,” Schwartz said.

The Bison will take on Loyola at home on Saturday, April 10 at 6 p.m. for their final matchup before the Patriot League tournament.
