'Roo Men's Soccer Blanked by Colorado College

'Roo Men's Soccer Blanked by Colorado College

The Austin College men's soccer team fell 2-0 to visiting Colorado College on Friday afternoon, with the Tigers scoring once in each half to drop the 'Roos to 3-10-3 overall and 3-7-2 in Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference play.

The Tigers got on the board early on when Sean Parham tallied on an assist from Brandon Ogilvie in the 9th minute of action, but that's how the score would remain for the duration of the half and the 'Roos went into the break trailing 1-0. In the second half, Colorado College began to take control with an 11-2 shot advantage and Seth Newby scored on a feed from Max Grossenbacher in the 52nd minute to make it 2-0, and the 'Roos were unable to cut into the margin.

Andrew Celio had a strong game in goal with eight saves for the 'Roos, while Ian Horne made three saves for Colorado College as the Tigers out-shot the 'Roos 19-7 overall in the game.

Austin College will be looking to rebound when they take on the University of Dallas at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday afternoon.

Austin College athletic teams participate as a member of the NCAA Division III and the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference.
