The St. Catharine College mens’ soccer team faced two tough challenges on the road last week. And Tim Wolz’s team dropped both decisions with a 4-0 loss to Campbellsville University on Tuesday and a 2-0 setback at Bryan College (Tenn.) on Saturday. The Patriots now stand at 6-7 overall and 2-3 in conference play.
Campbellsville, a Mid-South Conference opponent, improved to 8-3-1 overall and 4-1 in the MSC. The Tigers scored two goals in each half. They had 22 total shots and 11 shots on goal. The Patriots managed only three total shots and only one on frame. CJ Powell had six saves in goal for St. Catharine before leaving the game early in the second half with a hand injury. Brandon Campbell replaced him and had one save while surrendering the final two goals.
The scenario was similar on Saturday in Dayton, Tenn., as the Patriots managed only two shots on goal in the 2-0 loss to Bryan, who is ranked 18th nationally in the NAIA. The Lions (9-1-1) had 34 total shots and 14 on goal. Powell had nine saves for the game.
St. Catharine will play its final home game of the season today against MSC-foe University of the Cumberlands. That game starts at 4 p.m. and is the second of a womens’/mens’ doubleheader.
