MEN’S SOCCER EARNS A 1-1 DRAW ON THE ROAD AT KING

BRISTOL, Tenn. – Freshman Moritz Lotzen (Hochberg, Germany) scored his first goal of the season as the Shaw men's soccer team drew 1-1 on the road with King University Wednesday afternoon.

 

The Bears (1-1-1) combined for 10 shots and six on goal, including Lotzen's lone goal in the second half. Meanwhile, King (1-1-1) finished with 13 shots and seven on target and one goal.

 

Both teams were scoreless after the first frame of action; Lozten gave the Bears the 1-0 lead at the 62:40 mark after his shot bounced over the goalie into the net.

 

King would respond with just over 11 minutes later when Leo Braga buried one into the back of the net to tie the game at 1-1. After that, both teams would engage into offensive struggles forcing the game to go into overtime.

 

The first time overtime proved to be nerve racking for the Bears when senior Thilo Wilke (Karlstadt, Germany) was given a yellow card. Down the stretch, he would nearly get a shot in but Dalton Gammon saved it as the game would be sent into its second overtime.

 

The Bears had attempted two shots in the second overtime but the Tornadoes defense held their ground as neither team would record a goal in the final overtime period for the draw.

 

Defensively, freshman Theo Delaleu (Les Essarts Le Roi, France) recorded five saves in 110:00 of play.

 

Shaw will return to action on Sept. 8 at Christendom for a 2 p.m. kickoff.
