Moon Township, Pa. (September 27, 2019)— Mount St. Mary's men's soccer fell at Robert Morris, 1-0, in the Northeast Conference opener at RMU's North Athletic Complex on Friday afternoon. An own goal off a cross to the middle in the 80th minute lifted Robert Morris to the win. The Mount's record falls to 3-4-0 overall and 0-1-0 in the NEC.
The Colonials (2-6-1, 1-0-0 NEC) outshot the Mount, 12-to-8, in the game while each team took five corner kicks. The Mountaineers held a 4-to-2 edge in shots on goal with RMU goalkeeper Mike Zolnierczyk making four saves and Mount keeper Riccardo Zonta making two.
"Tough game today and credit to Robert Morris for finishing their chance," said Mount St. Mary's head coach Bryan Cunningham. "We had moments of good play, but in the end we didn't play a complete match."
