Box score

Fort Wayne, Ind. – The Indiana Tech men’s soccer team lost its first conference match of the season on Saturday afternoon, falling to the visiting Racers of the University of Northwestern Ohio 2-1.

The loss dropped the Warriors to 6-4-1 overall and 2-1-1 in league play while UNOH improved to 5-6-0 and 2-2-0 in the WHAC.

The Racers were in total control in the first half, dominating possession and scored the game’s first goal at the 29:27 mark. Wesley Cain found Malakai Field who slipped a shot past junior keeper Reece Richardson (Halifax, England/Ryburn Valley).

The Warriors managed to keep UNOH off the board the rest of the half despite being outshot 13-1 and the Racers having four corner kicks compared to Tech’s zero.

Indiana Tech climbed back into the game with a goal just over two minutes into the second period. The Racers committed a crucial mistake, fouling Tech freshman Braden Walker (Mississauga, Ont./Streetsville) just outside the 18-yard box. On the ensuing free kick, sophomore Padraic Ormsby (Wicklow, Ireland/Peninsula) delivered a perfect strike to the far post to beat the UNOH keeper and tie the game at 1-1.

However, the Racers broke the deadlock in the 72nd minute with what would turn out to be the game-winning goal. This time it was Field who found Cain who tapped the ball into the open net after Richardson went out to challenge Field.

The Warriors played a stronger, more aggressive second half. Tech outshot Northwestern Ohio 6-4 in the period and held a 5-1 edge in corner kicks.

Up next, the Warriors will travel to Adrian, Michigan for a conference matchup with Siena Heights University on Wednesday, Oct. 10. The game will kick-off at 7 p.m.
