Men’s soccer team nets first win
Six matches into the 2013 soccer season, St. Xavier University’s men finally got to experience the thrill of victory.
And the Cougars did so because of something different: the scoring of multiple goals.
SXU had managed to tally just twice prior to last Tuesday night’s Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference encounter with the University of St. Francis and was shut out three times during that five-match span. Magnifying the paucity of potency was foes’ piling up of 19 goals.
But the roles got reversed this time, with the Cougars doing all the offensive damage in a 3-0 outcome at Bruce R. Deaton Field. Freshman defender Erik Diaz booted in two of SXU’s three markers, while sophomore forward Marco Gutierrez accounted for the other.
