MURFREESBORO, N.C. – The Lees-McRae College men's soccer team dropped a 4-2 decision on the road at Chowan Saturday afternoon. The loss pushes LMC's overall record to 2-7-2 on the season and 2-4-1 in Conference Carolinas action.
Lees-McRae got on the board first on Saturday as Agustin Ortiz beat the Chowan keeper on a penalty shot. Ortiz's goal was the lone goal of the first half. When the two teams returned to the pitch following halftime, Chowan netted four unanswered goals to get all the offense it would need for the victory. Stephon Davis cut the deficit to two in the last minute of regulation with his third goal of the season with assists credited to Johannes Oeksnevad and Anders Stoakes.
Goalkeeper Anton Sundstrom took the loss in goal for the Bobcats on Saturday dropping his record to 2-7-2 on the season. Sundstrom made six saves on 10 attempts against the Hawks.
The Bobcats will return to action on Saturday when they host Belmont Abbey in another Conference Carolinas clash. Kickoff between the Crusaders and Bobcats is set for 4 p.m. from Tate Field.
