Men's Soccer Drops Aggressive Match Against St. Mary's
09/11/2002

FROSTBURG, MD - The Frostburg State men's soccer team, still looking for its first win, could not pull it off as the Bobcats dropped a tough 2-1 decision to visiting St. Mary’s College of Maryland Wednesday afternoon.

The Bobcats got behind in the first half when a long pass from Seahawk Jesse McDonough led Brian Wolcott on a solo run as he easily put the ball past FSU senior goalkeeper Mike Pregnall (Oaktown/Herdon, Va.) for the early 1-0 lead.

Frostburg State had opportunities, the best of which came in the 43rd minute, as the Bobcats were able to get the cross into the box past the goalie to the opposite side of the net, but the bouncing ball could not be controlled and was eventually cleared without a shot.

The score remained 1-0 until early in the second half as a perfect flick pass from St. Mary’s Nathaniel Graham lead Alun Oliver on another solo run which was again converted to give the Seahawks a 2-0 lead.

FSU did not give up, as the Bobcats began to play more aggressively and were able to create more scoring opportunities. It finally paid off in the 70th minute when a bouncing ball in the box was put in the net by Jamie Romano (John Carroll/Stafford, Va.), his first of the season. The goal brought the Bobcats within one with twenty minutes left and all the momentum on their side.

Things remained close as FSU was able to create run after run, but could not convert on any more opportunities as time ran out. The Bobcats were able to get off 11 shots, including eight in the second half. FSU's aggressive style led to 23 fouls, which made it hard to complete offensive runs and scoring chances.

Frostburg State will look to get things rolling again as it travels to Columbia Union on Saturday September 14th for an 8:15 p.m. contest.
