Men's Soccer Suffers Setback at Gettysburg

GETTYSBURG, Pa. - The Dickinson men's soccer team recorded nine shots on the night, but was unable to dent the scoreboard as they fell 4-0 on the road Gettysburg College in Centennial Conference action on Wednesday night.

Gettysburg began the match fast as Jonathan Molina took advantage of a foul in the attacking half as he curled a free-kick past, John Baney, for the 1-0 lead with 5:43 gone. In the ninth minute, Ronan Higgins had an attempt blocked, before Chaz Smith was stopped by Kevin Muhic. Six minutes later both keepers were busy with Baney turning aside Molina and then Will Flannery had his blast denied by Muhic. Tyson Burling got the Red Devils final shot of the half in the 27th-minute but was unable to score. The Bullets made it 2-0 nine minutes prior to half as Aidan Giquinto finished off a bouncing ball in the box.   

The home side was on the front foot right out of the half as well with Aidan Muller and Fritz Reiter each beating new goalkeeper Andrew Kempe inside the first eight minutes of the period. It would take until the 56:41 mark for DC to post a shot as Burling had another attempt blocked down by the defense. Geoffrey Ogenrwot, Aidan Bennett-Jones, and Adam Moreland recorded shots the rest of the way for Dickinson forcing just one more save out of Muhic.
