The College of Southern Maryland men’s soccer team lost to the Carroll Community College Lynx on October 15 3-2.
Both teams were able to build solid scoring chances throughout the beginning stages of the first half. Ultimately, it was Carroll who broke through first though, scoring in the 35th minute. The Lynx took a 1-0 lead to halftime.
Carroll kept their momentum from the first half going in the second half as they padded their lead with a second goal in the 55th minute.
Freshman Yohan Ouedraogo got CSM back to within one in the 64th minute. He worked his way from the right side of the field through several Carroll defenders to the top of the 18-yard box, where he was able to get a shot off and past the Carroll goalie into the left side of the net. Freshman Eric Brookhart assisted on the score.
Seconds after the Lynx regained a two-goal advantage in the 82nd minute, sophomore Hayden Gould converted a penalty kick given to CSM in the 82nd minute to keep the Hawks within a goal.
CSM could not find the tying goal in the remaining minutes, however, and fell to 3-9-1 on the season.
CSM’s next game is Thursday, October 17 at Northern Virginia Community College.
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 email@example.com
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
