Raiders start fast to down Sabre men’s soccer

October 4, 2018

MILWAUKEE – Marian University men’s soccer (3-6-1, 1-4-0 NACC) fell behind early and couldn’t bounce back being defeated by MSOE 5-1 in NACC play.

MSOE jumped out fast on the Sabres netting three goals in the first half as MSOE held a 9-3 shots in advantage.  The Sabres were able to bounce back in the 58th minute when freshman Jack Ruscheinski fed a ball to fellow freshman Juan Herrera that he was able to finish from 10 yards out.  The goal was the second of the year for Herrera and cut the Sabre deficit down to 3-1.

In the final minutes, however, the Raiders would net a pair of goals to ice the game and set the final at 5-1.

Freshman Brandon Mancini five of the nine Marian shots in the defeat.  Senior Ian Chacon (3-5-1) faced 11 shots and made six saves for the Sabres in goal.

Marian hits the road once again to travel to Aurora Saturday, Oct. 6 for a 2:30 p.m. kickoff.
