Men's Soccer Falls to Catholic

Men's Soccer Falls to Catholic

ARLINGTON, Va. – Marymount men's soccer dropped a hard-fought rivalry match to Catholic on Wednesday night after surrendering a second-half tally to fall, 2-1.

HOW IT HAPPENED

  • Marymount pushed the pace early on in the match and recorded three of the first four shots. 
  • Catholic found the back of the net first thanks to a goal from Darius Siahpoosh in the 36th minute. 
  • In the 44th minute, the Saints intercepted a Catholic pass in the attacking third before connecting passes to find the equalizer off the left foot of Chris Mendoza.
  • Brandon Loarte executed a beautiful one-touch pass before Mendoza fired the shot for his first career goal. 
  • Both teams battled in the second half but Catholic came up with the game-winner in the 76th minute. Siahpoosh made a nice run along the end line before finding Gordie Bernlohr in front of the net for the tally. 
  • The Saints created some quality chances in the final 15 minutes, but couldn't find the equalizer. 

HEAR FROM COACH KALIN

  • "We battled and at times I felt we were very dangerous against a very solid team. There is a reason why Catholic is undefeated. You can't make mistakes against NCAA Tournament-level teams. While we only made two, they capitalized on both. To our team's credit, we fought and created chances literally to the final whistle. This loss hurts but it will make us better."

UP NEXT

  • Marymount travels to Stevenson on Saturday for a 4 PM matchup with the Mustangs. 
  • The Saints return to Long Bridge Park on Monday, Sept. 26 to host Hood for Youth Camper Night.
