The Bison Men’s Soccer Team returned to Emmitt Field at Holmes Stadium this past Saturday to face the Colgate Raiders in a Patriot League match-up. 

In a hard fought battle, both teams split the points, ending the 90 minutes in a 1-1 draw.

The Bison were eager to return home this weekend after being away for the past two weeks. Despite what their record may show, the Orange and Blue put on a dominating performance against the Raiders, with many quality chances throughout the match. First-years Charlie Holmes ’26 and Cade McGrath ’26 put Colgate’s goalkeeper up to the test early in the first half, but neither opportunity found the back of the net. 

At the half-hour mark, the Raiders earned a corner and just barely capitalized on it, as the ball slid into the corner of the goal off of a header. The Bison entered half time down 1-0, but were not ready to give up. Less than four minutes into the second half, Zane Domsohn ’26 scored his first collegiate goal to even up the match 1-1. 

His diving header was a result of Colin Murphy ’24 beating two defenders and Waldemar Kattrup ’25 crossing it into the box. The Bison continued to scrape for the remainder of the half, keeping the Raiders under immense pressure. 

It was with the help of the defense, however, that led them to the draw. An important play by centerback Matt Owusu ’24 prevented the Raiders from capitalizing on another opportunity. 

“I thought the boys played well and we are excited for our next opportunity to improve against Holy Cross,” Captain MJ Kuczura ’24 said. 

The Bison will remain in Lewisburg for their next match on Oct. 29 at 2 p.m. against Holy Cross in their Senior Day match. They will then travel to Loyola on Nov. 2 to face the Greyhounds in their final match of the regular season.
