  • My Fiction Icks
    By Jay Grummel When you read as much as I do you start to notice common things in fiction that make you annoyed, upset  or even want to put down the book completely. I have a bad habit of not giving books much of a chance when they use some of these personal ‘icks’. However, […]
  • Poetry for Fall
    By Jay Grummel Poetry has a way of connecting us to the external and internal world. In poetry it is easier to feel a season and truly feel a piece due to this. Poetry has a subtle way of making the readers immersed into the world of the poem. With the air getting colder and […]

Men’s soccer drops MAC game at West Virginia

The BG men’s soccer team lost its second game in a row for the first time this season.

Now winless in its last four games, including three losses and one draw, the Falcons fall to 9-5-1 overall, 0-2-1 in the Mid-American Conference.

To open the scoring, BG benefitted from a West Virginia own goal just 21 minutes into the game.

Just 11 minutes later the Mountaineers answered back with a goal of their own on a cross-to-header combination.

Ending the first half scoring, the Falcons managed just one shot over the first 45 minutes.

To begin the second half, the Mountaineers fired a flurry of shots, but failed to get any of them on frame.

However, at minute 77, West Virginia knocked in its second header of the game off a free kick.

Falling behind 2-1, the Falcons were unable to get any shots off in the final 13 minutes.

“West Virginia is a good team,” said head coach Eric Nichols. “They are hard to play against, particularly in West Virginia, but this was a pretty good performance for us. We definitely had them on their heels at times.”

Despite playing a pretty good game, forcing pressure and allowing just two shots on frame, the Falcons were unable to make the necessary plays to come out on top, as both shots got past goalkeeper Nick Landsberger.

“With that said, we’ve got another level, and we’ve got some gaps that we need to fill in,” Nichols said.

The loss was their third in their last four games, as they remain winless in the MAC.

Now, with just two MAC games left in the season, BG will need to play considerably better to keep their MAC championship hopes alive.

“Obviously we’ve boxed ourselves into a corner here in the MAC,” Nichols said. “But, I like our chances to rebound, learn and move forward.”

Looking to rebound over the last couple games, the Falcons will look to accelerate the process when they take the field next against the University of Detroit.

The game will be the last of a 3-game road trip before they return home for their next MAC game.

The Titans will come into the game having not lost in their last four games, beating Cleveland State 3-0 in their most recent game.

The Falcons will be trying for their first victory since Oct. 7, as they begin their first game of the final 4-game stretch.
