From back when we won games
Here it is, the inaugural Bwog Sports Sunday. Most people don’t have the time to go spectate and support our athletes; even more casually forget that we have athletics. In this maiden installment, Bwog’s finest athletic correspondent, Kevin Powers, informs the busy fans and remind the ignorant masses of this week’s sporting news.
Men’s Soccer (3-3-1):
Latest Result: Lions fall 1-0 to Monmouth University (5-2) in third straight loss.
Overview: Despite a strong 3-0 start to the season, the Lions have had trouble finding the back of the net in their latest contests, losing the past three by a score of 1-0. On Thursday, the Lions faced a formidable opponent in Monmouth University (5-2), who controlled most of the play in the first half. Monmouth’s Derek Luke tallied the only goal of the game with a one-touch finish off of a cross from Hawks defender RJ Allen in the 17th minute. The Lions came out in the second half much stronger, possessing well and and creating chances. Most notably, a corner kick from freshman Kofi Agyapong found the foot of senior captain Mike Mazzulo, but his shot was saved and the Lions were unable to capitalize on the opportunity.
Highlight: Bwog enjoyed some fancy footwork from freshman newcomer Kofi Agyapong and senior Francios Anderson, who megged* a Monmouth midfielder in the second half. Also, senior goalkeeper Alex Aurrichio looks, sounds, and smells like a caveman. Roar on, Lion.
Upcoming Contest: The Lions will be away against Seton Hall (4-4-2) on Tuesday and then back home at Columbia Soccer Stadium to take on Brown (5-2) on Saturday at 4pm in their Ivy League opener.
*a nutmeg, or meg for short, is when one player puts the ball through the legs of an opposing player. This is incredibly embarrassing and is a sign of significant personal failure.
