MONMOUTH, IL (09/02/2019) Monmouth scored first, but neither team could gain much of an edge Monday night when the Scots and the Central College Dutch battled to a 1-1 double overtime draw.
Hadyn DeLeeuw found Devin Cross for a Scots’ score before three
minutes had elapsed to give Monmouth an early lead. Monmouth kept
Central out of the net until the 41st minutes when the Dutch knotted the
score at one each.
The teams combined for 14 second half shots, but none found the net
as the match moved into the first overtime. The defenses ruled in the
first extra session as Monmouth manages the only shot in the frame.
Central fired off five shots in the final OT period,
putting just one on goal that was stoned by goalkeeper Kensey Arlt, one
of five saves in the game.
Monmouth continues their road trip this weekend with a Friday contest at Concordia Chicago and a Sunday jaunt to Buena Vista.
With their season opener Friday cancelled due to severe weather in
St. Louis, the Monmouth College men’s soccer team opened their season at
home Sunday, hosting the University of Dubuque.
MONMOUTH, IL (09/01/19) The Scots put two-thirds of their shots on goal, but came up on the short end of a 2-0 score. The Spartans broke the ice in the 22nd minute, but the Scots then held UD scoreless for the next 43 minutes. Dubuque added an insurance score in the 67th minute and held the Scots at bay down the stretch.
Taking over in the second half for starting goalkeeper Kieren Marshall, freshman ‘keeper Marcos Garibay stoned five of the Spartans’ six second half shots on goal. Duh Thang placed both of his shots on goal for the Scots, only to be turned aside by the Dubuque goalkeeper.
