The Orange and Blue Men’s Soccer Team played Mount St. Mary’s in a dramatic loss in Lewisburg on Friday night. Mount St. Mary’s scored two goals in the final three minutes to give them victory on the night. 

 

Captain MJ Kuczura ‘24 had a fantastic night on the pitch, scoring his first career goal eight minutes into the game to give the Bison a lead 1-0. 

 

Kuczura was a force on the field all night, starting out the game strong by slotting a ball to Sebastian Paz ‘24 that got blocked by the Mount St. Mary’s goalkeeper just six minutes in. 

 

Throughout the game, Paz was hungry for a goal, having four shots throughout the game. The junior, alongside Mo Tall ‘23, were credited with the assists on Kuczura’s goal. 

 

Mount St. Mary’s tied up the game before halftime.

 

Jackson Sullivan ‘26 had a game winning opportunity in the 83rd minute, but Mount St. Mary’s goalie made a great stop to keep the game all tied up. 

 

The Bison played an aggressive game, having 18 fouls called on them in comparison to only seven fouls called on Mount St. Mary’s. 

 

On the 18th foul, a Mount St. Mary’s player scored from 27 yards out to give the Mountaineers the lead with around three minutes remaining in the match. 

 

Two minutes later, the Mountaineers struck again, advancing their lead to 3-1. 

 

The Bison had the better of the play, with the shots being 14-9 and 7-3 in corner kicks in favor of the Orange and Blue. 

 

Kuczura reflected on the match. “It was a really disappointing ending to the game. The team has been working really hard in practice and games and we just didn’t get the result we wanted. Even though we lost, all of these games are preparing us for Patriot League play,” Kuczura said. 

 

The Bison play at home again on Wednesday vs Saint Francis at 7 p.m.
