WOOSTER, Ohio - The Bluffton University men's soccer team went up 1-0 early before two second half Wooster goals added up to a 2-1 victory for the Fighting Scots on Wednesday, Sept. 3, 2014. Bluffton fell to 0-3, while Wooster improved to 2-1 on the season.
Senior Ben Knotts (Carrollton) capitalized on an early yellow card issued to Wooster as he found the back of the net with a penalty kick less than 15 minutes into the contest. Bluffton limited the home team to just one shot in the first half while maintaining the slim one-goal advantage at the break.
Wooster broke into the scoring column in minute 53 to knot the contest and with just over four minutes to play, the home team banged in tally number two for the 2-1 victory. Bluffton finished with a commanding 11-5 edge in shots but the Beavers were unable to make it stand up.
Senior Peter Carlson (Toledo/Springfield) finished with three shots, while both of Knotts' attempts were on frame. Blake Drewes (Archbold) and Grant Stutzman (Sugarcreek/Hiland) both chipped in with a pair of shots.
The Bluffton men welcome Cincinnati Christian University for the 2014 home opener at 5 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 5. Come out and support your Beavers!
