  • Repairing the Family
    By Jay Grummel Earlier this month I wrote about fond families, however the holidays are made up of many different types of families. Some will be hostile and dysfunctional or some will be loving and understanding. Whatever your family looks like this season, it’s always nice to read about ones other than your own. So, […]
  • Review of The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes
    Let’s time-travel to the year 2012 and the world is raving about none other than Katniss Everdeen. I remember being in elementary school, begging my mother to let me dress up as her for my birthday. Now it’s over ten years later and I’m still just as excited for the new movie as I was […]

Falcons fight Duquesne to 2-2 draw on the road

Drake Harlett

BGSU Men’s Soccer (1-1-1) traveled to Pittsburgh to take on Duquesne (1-1-1) Thursday night, fighting the Dukes to a 2-2 draw in their third match of the young 2023 season.

The Falcons opened up the scoring in the first half, as senior defender Kyle Cusimano headed home a ball from Alberto Anaya off a corner kick. The two captains combined to give BG a lead in the 18’.

The Dukes would respond quickly, with a long ball over the top that found forward Jaydon Da, who curled a right-footed shot into the back of the net in the 22’ to tie the game 1-1.

Junior defender Rodrigo Silva would put the Falcons back in front with his first career goal for the Orange and Brown, as he put away a rebound off an Anaya freekick, making it 2-1 BG in the 27’.

Duquesne would answer again just before halftime as forward Zach Mowka struck the equalizer for the Dukes in the 43’, once again tying the game at 2-2.

The Falcons received a red card for their second straight game. This time, 5th-year Nathan Masters was sent off in the 78’, leaving BG to play with 10 in the remaining 12 minutes of the match.

Senior goal-keeper Brendan Graves had a career-high 10 saves for the Falcons, the highest save total by a BG keeper since 2018. Graves was key in helping the Falcons defend a flurry of chances from the Dukes late in the second half, as BG secured a point on the road.

BGSU will return home to Cochrane Stadium for their first of a three-game homestand, starting with a Labor Day matchup against the Michigan Wolverines, on Monday, Sept. 4. Kick-off is set for 3 p.m. Catch the action on the WBGU-PBS Youtube Channel.
