Men's Soccer - Sun, Oct. 16, 2016

The Harris-Stowe Men's Soccer team lost last night 3-0 against a very tough Columbia College Cougars team that entered the game undefeated in their previous nine contests.  The Cougars stay in first place with the victory and are now 8-0 in American Midwest Conference play.  The loss drops the Hornets to 3-9 and 3-5 in AMC play.

The game was a physical one that seen 6 yellow cards and 1 red card.  It was a very defensive first half with only one goal on the 39th minute.  Trailing 1-0 at half the Hornets could not get much traction past the Cougars defenders and finished the game with only 3 shots on goal.  The Cougars scored again on the 59th minute and the 71st minute to put the score out of reach.  Head Coach Scott Hartwig on the game, "The guys gave it everything last night and held a Columbia team on the verge of national rankings to 0-0 for 38 minutes. Then one selfish act of foolishness earned a red card and that was the game changer for me. To play 55 minutes against quality opposition with 10 men should always result goals for the team with the extra man. The guys however battled and fought today, that should give them the confidence that we have the passion and ability to match the best teams."
