Saints Outdo Cards 2-0
CUA falls to 3-4 on the season
WASHINGTON - The Catholic University men's soccer team (3-4) fell to its old Capital Athletic Conference foe, the Marymount Saints (3-4) Wednesday evening at the DuFour Center. The Cards had chances but were unable to connect losing 2-0. The game marked the first CAC team the squad has played since joining the Landmark Conference this fall.
Marymount did all of its scoring in the first half and then tightened the defense for the remainder of the contest. In just the second minute of the game, Andrew Stearns got the ball over keeper Quinn Daly's (San Diego, Calif./St. Augustine) head off of a high kick in the middle of the box. David Nolan assisted on the play from the right side. In the 19th minute the Saints struck again as Justin Dome weaved through the Cardinal defense on the left side and found the back of the net. This made the score 2-0 at the break and it would prove to be the final as the Cards were unable to connect despite 10 shots.
The Cardinals played the Saints evenly with just a two-shot discrepancy between them. Both squads had two corner kicks and both teams were credited with six saves. Daly was given the loss for CUA while William Brahmstedt received the win for Marymount. Even the penalties were even as both squads received three yellow cards apiece.
CUA will open up Landmark Conference play on Saturday at the United States Merchant Marine Academy. The game is slated to begin at noon.
