Despite heavily out-shooting the Alvernia Crusaders 20-9, and holding a 5-3 corner kick advantage, the Stevenson men’s soccer team were unable to pick up a crucial conference victory on Senior Day, Saturday afternoon at Mustang Stadium.

Stevenson could not overcome two early goals in the game.

The first game in just the ninth minute. Senior goalkeeper Michael Tringali made a jumping save to push a shot take from far out over the goal. However, on the ensuing corner kick sent in by Jay Ringer, Chris Guth got the ball in point-blank range and shot it behind Tringali for the goal.

Eight minutes later, another set play for the Crusaders seemed to confuse the Mustangs defense. A long throw in, into the box was pushed towards the goal by a Stevenson defender. In close proximity to the goal, Vincent Biche bounced a header shot off the crossbar, but on the ricochet, Mustang forward James Vess got his head on the ball. However, instead of clearing it out of danger, he put it into the Mustangs goal for an own goal.

Stevenson continued to push numbers forward, especially after falling behind by two goals, and out-shot the Crusaders 13-3 in the second half, but couldn’t get a goal until the final minute of the game.

Alvernia goalkeeper Zach Rider made six saves in the game. The only time he was beaten was in the 90th minute when Adam Diabagate headed in a corner kick sent in by Kevin Benitez.

The Mustangs still have two games remaining to pick up more points in the MACC standings. The Mustangs have six points and in sixth place, two points behind Lycoming for the final playoff spot. The final spot in the MACC playoffs may come down to Stevenson’s regular-season finale at Lycoming next Saturday. They will play at second-place Lebanon Valley on Tuesday.

Editor in Chief
You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
