BGSU Soccer Loses to Detroit

Posted: Updated:

The University of Detroit Mercy scored once in each half to deal the Bowling Green State University men's soccer team a disappointing 2-0 loss Tuesday night (Sept. 18).  The non-conference match was held at Cochrane Field on the BGSU campus.


With the win, the Titans improve to 4-4-0 on the season. The Falcons drop to 2-3-2.

Patrick Soltys got the visitors on the scoreboard with 16:08 gone in the contest, heading home a Kevin Pinkos corner kick.  Detroit got an insurance goal from Adam Bedell with just 4:02 remaining in the match.  Bedell, the two-time reigning Horizon League Player of the Week, knocked home the rebound of a shot by Matt Ybarra.

For Bedell, it marked the fifth consecutive match in which he has scored a goal.

Nathan Steinwascher made five saves to earn the shutout for the visitors.  BGSU junior Michael Wiest had four saves at the other end of the pitch.

BGSU now prepares for a Saturday (Sept. 22) matchup with the nationally-ranked University of Akron.  The Falcons and Zips will meet in a 7:00 p.m. start at Cochrane Field, and it will be an Orange Out, as all fans are encouraged to wear orange.
