Men's Soccer Blanked by Ursinus

COLLEGEVILLE, Pa. - The Dickinson men's soccer team mustered five shots on target, but were unable to solve Tyler Lewin as Ursinus College earned a 3-0 win over the Red Devils on Saturday night at Patterson Field in Centennial Conference action.

Ursinus got on the board in the sixth-minute when Aidan O'Malley took advantage of a misplay by Red Devils keeper John Baney and stuck the ball into an open net. Dickinson tried to answer back quickly, but offerings from Isaac Bradbury and Tyson Burling missed the mark. The Red Devils tried to take advantage of a set-piece at the 27:37 mark as Geoffrey Ogenrwot played a corner to Mack Moore who sent a header wide. O'Malley notched his second of the match just before halftime with a 30-yard free-kick after a DC foul. 

Dickinson started the second period strong with Ronan Higgins forcing a save out of Lewin, unfortunately, the rebound attempt by Bradbury went high. The Bears extended it to 3-0 with 56:51 gone as Marco Grenda found Jack Schmidt for the finish. Bradbury supplied the Devils next chance in minute 68, but he was denied by Lewin. Five minutes later the same scenario repeated itself as Lewin shutdown Bradbury. He would get one more crack at Lewin in the 78th as the Bears committed a foul in the box resulting in a penalty kick. Bradbury stepped up to the spot but was stopped once again by Lewin. Will Flannery tried to end the clean sheet with a minute to go, however, Lewin made his final stop of the night to preserve the 3-0 win.
