MEN'S SOCCER: Cardinals split opening games

8/25/19

Men’s soccer went 1-1 at the NWAC Friendlies this week with a 1-2 loss to Clark College and 1-0 win over Edmonds CC.  On Thursday night, Clark got into the Cardinals’ defensive end two minutes in and whipped one to the back post but Julian Reichold got a hand to it and deflected it wide.  After that, the Cardinals had the run of play for most of the half.  Shane Watkins missed both posts by inches in the first half.  Mac Stultz got by the keeper with the ball, but a Clark defender made a goal line save.  Noah Dreves also got into the box but failed to convert.  Unfortunately, a Clark shot by Kleon Klang deflected off a Cardinal leg and went into the net for the 1-0 Clark lead in the 39th minute.  The second half was relatively even, and the Cardinals pulled even in the 78th minute when Jaden Eder served a ball in to Dreves.  Dreves took a diagonal touch out of the air and slammed the ball past Clark’s keeper for the equalizer.  Clark wasn’t done though, earning a penalty kick in the 85th minute.  Valentin Gudz stepped to the mark and put it away to defeat NIC 2-1.  Reichold had six saves in the match.

 

On Friday, the Cardinals rebounded and created several opportunities against Edmonds CC and dominated possession.  In the early going, Kai Flugel found Greyden Lee and Dorian Cornichuck in the box for opportunities in the opening minutes, but the score remained tied.  Flugel continued to work for opportunities though and found Mac Stultz at the back post for the 1-0 lead in the 24th minute.  Despite creating more opportunities and earning several corners, the Cardinals failed to expand the lead.  In the end though, they held the shutout on five saves by Max Warnell for the win.  The men travel to Shoreline for a match Friday.
