Soccer Falls Short in Semis

<lass="page section layoutArea column" title="Page 1">

Carleton’s men’s and women’s soccer teams both ended their seasons in hard-fought defeats on Wednesday in the MIAC semifinals. After each side won their opening matches of the tournament on Bell Field Tuesday, the men, despite playing their hearts out the second half, could not break past the tough Gustie defense to overcome an early 1-0 deficit at Gustavus Adolphus College.

“The team fought hard and created a handful of chances, but it just wasn’t our day,” said Carleton head coach Bob Carlson. “Congratulations to Gustavus and good luck to them in their next match.”

While Gustavus (14-4-1) attempted more shots during the contest, Carleton possessed a 5-4 lead in shots on goal. The Knights (10-7-2) also attempted four corner kicks on the afternoon.

Carleton had the ball in the box a couple of times in the early going but was unable to knock the ball past Gustavus keeper Brett Ylonen.

The lone tally of the contest came in the 26th minute when Zach Brown finished off a service from Patrick Roth to the back post.

Today marked the final collegiate game for the five seniors on the Carleton roster: Keenan Smith, Jordy Cammarota, Shant Douzdjian, Will Schifeling, and Devin Tomson-Moylan.
