RIVER FOREST, Ill. – After a big win against Illinois Tech on Saturday afternoon, MSOE men's soccer headed into today's contest with Dominican looking to move to 4-1 in conference play. Unfortunately, a lack of offense and decisions that were made which were out of their control led to their shutout loss to the Stars on Wednesday afternoon.
MSOE – 0
Dominican – 3
HOW IT HAPPENED
You're not going to win too many ballgames when you only get one shot on goal. This was the case for MSOE (5-5-1, 3-2 NACC) this afternoon, as Joey Schauer had the lone ball that Dominican's (9-2-2, 5-0 NACC) goalkeeper had to stop. Overall the Stars outpaced the Raiders in shots 17-5. Another factor that didn't help their chances was the fact that they had to play two men down for a majority of the second half. Both Danny Bader and Lucas D'Amato were handed red cards, meaning that the Red & White were limited to just nine players on the field for the last 40 or so minutes. Dominican's Isaac Perez scored all three DU tallies as the Raiders fell 3-0 to their conference foe.
- The Raiders were issued three yellow cards and two red cards. In comparison, the Stars were tagged with none.
- This was the first time that Ron Marchionna has allowed three goals in a game this season.
- The five shots that the Raiders registered this afternoon was the lowest total of the 2019 season. The same goes for shots on goal as well.
WHO'S ON DECK
The Raiders will look to get back above the .500 mark on their current road trip when they head to Rockford for a 7:00 pm game on Saturday evening.
