The College of Southern Maryland Hawks lost to the CCBC Essex Knights on September 17 by a score of 4-0.
The Knights kept CSM on their heels all game, scoring two goals in each half.
Freshman Logan Miller was the only Hawk to register shots on goal in this contest, ending the day with four. One of his best chances of the game came early in the first half when his shot from a few yards beyond the 18-yard box banged off the crossbar.
Freshman Joseph Walsh made two outstanding saves on an Essex penalty kick in the 77th minute. Walsh had to take starting goalie Jared-Lee Pixton‘s spot in the net after Pixton was given a yellow card inside CSM’s penalty box.
The Essex player decided to shoot at the bottom right corner of the goal, but Walsh reacted perfectly, diving to his left to make the save. The ball rebounded back to the shooter, who took another shot while Walsh was still recovering, but again, Walsh’s reflexes kept the ball out of the net, preventing Essex from adding another goal.
After not losing their first three games of the season, the Hawks have now been shutout five games in a row. CSM will look to get back on a winning track when they travel to Cecil College on September 20.
The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.
To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
