The loss drops the Wildcats out of contention for the title, they play Southern Maine in a consolation game on Nov. 4
ASHEVILLE, N.C. – Despite six saves from freshman keeper Aaron Volz (West Chester), the Pennsylvania College of Technology men’s soccer team lost 2-0 to #2 Briarcliffe College at the United States Collegiate Athletic Association Soccer Championships Wednesday. The Wildcats allowed two early goals and never rebounded. The loss drops the team out of contention for the title.
Penn College (12-7-2) started off shaky and allowed Briarcliffe to score early in the sixth and 36th minutes. Penn College was outshot 13-3 in the half.
“We didn’t come out strong,” said head coach Enrique Castillo. “They scored two quick goals before we settled and that was all they needed.”
The Wildcats were the better team in the second half notching seven shots three corner kicks. Despite strong opportunities, none of the shots could convert to goals.
“We were a different team in the second,” said Castillo. “We started getting more offense together but couldn’t finish.”
Penn College will play #6 Southern Maine in a consolation game on Friday, Nov. 4 at 2 p.m.
