WATERTOWN, Wis. – After winning their first game this past Saturday at home, MSOE men's soccer looked to do the same thing on the road this afternoon against Maranatha Baptist. Though they were not able to play on the Sabercats main field, the Raiders had no difficulties scoring goals in a 3-0 victory.
MSOE – 3
Maranatha Baptist – 0
HOW IT HAPPENED
Playing in an extremely rare Monday afternoon game, the Raiders wanted to get most of their roster some playing time in the battle against Maranatha Baptist (0-2-0). They did just that, playing 24 student-athletes including all three of their goalkeepers. The move paid off as five different MSOE (2-0-1) players got their names in the score column.
Antonio Roselli kicked off the run of three unanswered goals when he netted a Kyler Tanis pass at the 39' mark to put the Raiders up 1-0. That proved to be the game winning goal but didn't prevent the Red & White from adding more. Joey Schauer made it 2-0 win a goal just minutes into the second half, and Arsenius Adogmhe scored the final tally with 58 seconds left in the game thanks to a nice set up from Noah Hutchinson. The trio of keepers kept the Sabercats off the board, stopping all three shots that they saw in the contest.
The last time that the Raiders shutout back to back opponents was when they accomplished the feat against Lakeland and Aurora in late October of 2017.
WHO'S ON DECK
The busy week for the Raiders will roll on Wednesday night when they face one of their tougher battles in St. Norbert. Game time is set for 6:30 pm in De Pere, Wis.
