Buffalo, NY - The D'Youville men's soccer team suffered a tough conference loss to the Medaille Mavericks on Tuesday evening by the final score of 3-0.
The first half was a scoreless effort from both sides as the two teams traded chances frequently. Medaille registered five more shots than D'Youville with the tally of 9-4, but the Spartans were right in the game as the teams went into halftime tied a 0-0.
To begin the second half, the Mavericks would get on the board first with a goal in the 49th minute for a 1-0 lead. The Spartans continued to work but were unable to find the back of the net before Medaille would add another goal to their total in the 69th minute to lead 2-0. They would then add an insurance goal four minutes later in the 73rd minute as the Mavericks took the game 3-0.
Nick Dumond (Lockport, NY/Starpoint), Marco Ciccarelli (Rochester, NY/Webster-Schroeder), and Mwibeleca Tumba (Congo/Fraternity Institute) all had two shots in the game. Kyle Dick (Churchville, NY/Churchville-Chili) made four saves in the loss.
