Macalester escapes Dutch 1-0

Men's soccer | Sept. 18, 2009

header ST. PAUL, MINN.—The scenario was a familiar one for the Central College men’s soccer team as it suffered a 1-0 defeat at Macalester College (Minn.) Friday night.

It was the third straight 1-0 game and the fourth in six games this season for the Dutch (3-3).

Central held a 13-6 shot advantage in the first half and 19-16 overall but Macalester scored the game’s only goal in the 59th minute.

“It was another tough IIAC-MIAC battle,” coach Garry Laidlaw said. “We were in behind them four times in the first 15 minutes. If we could have just finished off one of them it would have been a different game.

“Once again we battled hard and I thought did enough to win but we just aren’t finding ways to score.”

Central remains in the Twin Cities for the weekend, going up against Hamline Univ. (Minn.) Sunday in St. Paul at noon. Hamline enters the game at 3-4. The Dutch hold a 4-2 lead in the all-time series with Hamline but fell to the Pipers last year in Pella 3-2 in overtime.
