LWC Men's Soccer snaps Indiana Tech's unbeaten run
By Kyle Jackson
Lima, OH - The Lindsey Wilson men's soccer team (1-1, 0-0 MSC) got their season back on track Thursday afternoon after completing a 2-1 win over No. 11-ranked Indiana Tech (4-1, 0-0 WHAC) snapping the Warrior's four-game win streak to start the season.
The Blue Raiders narrowly outshot the Warriors 9-8 in the match with a 4-6 shot on goal mark. David Coffey made four saves for the Blue Raiders while Alexander Koziolek and Monwabisi Mngqibisa each netted their first goal of the season.
The first half got off to an interesting start as the Blue Raiders were awarded a free kick on the edge of the box in the sixth minute. Nathaniel Onyina Opoku stepped up to take the spot kick placing a shot just narrowly wide of the goal. The action didn't pick up again until the 37th minute when Indiana Tech broke the deadlock with a powerful shot from Jaxon Simerman on the far side of the box to make it 1-0.
Only a minute later the Blue Raiders found a goal of their own after Cyrus Harmon was fouled in the box. Koziolek stepped up to take the penalty, slotting it into the open left corner of the net to tie the game 1-1. Five yellow cards were awarded in the first half alone, as the game was a physical one between the two ranked sides.
The second half remained relatively quiet for the first twenty minutes with both teams sharing possession and chances at the net. It wasn't until substitute Mngqibisa entered the match in the 70th minute did things start to pick up. Eight minutes later the freshman forward found the back of the net after a combination of Opoku, and Harmon worked to dispossess the Indiana Tech goalkeeper and set up the game-winning goal.
The Blue Raiders will remain in Lima for their next match against No. 23 Northwestern Ohio on Saturday, Sept. 11th. Kickoff is set for 3pmCT.
