Saints slip to Shock in last non-conference match of season

Saints slip to Shock in last non-conference match of season

ARLINGTON, Va. – The Marymount men's soccer team fell in its final non-conference match of the season on Wednesday night, dropping a 3-1 decision to Washington Adventist University at Long Bridge Park. 

The Saints look to have grabbed the early lead over the Shock in the first half, but after the ball rolled into the net, a late whistle by the official called a foul in the process to keep the game scoreless. 

A few minutes later, a foul in the 18-yard box on the other end of the field awarded WUA with a penalty kick opportunity that worked its way for the 1-0 advantage. 

In the final minute of the half, the Saints connected on the offensive end. A ball played from the left side by junior Cameron Husseini found the feet of junior Marc Mendoza who ripped it past the Shock goalkeeper's hands for the 1-1 tie. 

With the 10-second countdown on, Washington Adventist maneuvered to put away just one more with two seconds left on the clock, taking a 2-1 lead into the break. 

The second half, the Shock outshot the Saints, 10-3, and found the back of the net once more to hold on to the 3-1 decision. 

The men will look to bounce back when they return to Capital Athletic Conference play on Saturday, September 30, hosting York College of Pennsylvania at 4 p.m.
