BEARS SUFFER SETBACK AT GEORGIA SOUTHWESTERN

AMERICUS, Ga.  – Sophomore Marc Almazor (Brooklyn, NY) scored his first goal of the season but it would not be enough as the Shaw University men's soccer team suffered an 8-1 decision to Georgia Southwestern on Wednesday afternoon. The loss drops the Bears to 3-5-1 on the year while GSW improves to 3-6-1.

 

Shaw trailed 4-0 in the first half after an 11-3 disadvantage in total shots. Almazor found the Bears goal at the 49th minute for his first score of the season from junior Carl Kennedy (Bolton, England) to cut the scoring drought and Canes lead 4-1 but GSW then went on to score four-straight, including two from Matheus Alves to route the Bears.

 

The goalkeeper duties were split for the Bears, both sophomore Mynor Martinez (West Hampton, NY) and freshman Theo Delaleu (Les Essarts Le Roi, France) finished with one save in 45:00 apiece. Shaw recorded 11 shots and just three on goal for the contest.

 

Shaw returns to action Saturday, Oct. 6 at Catawba. The game is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m.
