    Men’s Soccer Falls to Towson

    Men’s soccer lost 2-1 to the Towson Tigers on Saturday afternoon, wiping out their four game win streak. The loss dropped the Seawolves to 4-3 on the season. Towson now stands at 3-2-1.

    Sophomore defenseman Petar Rakovic scored his second goal of the season in the 39th minute to give SB the lead. The goal was assisted by freshman forward Maurice Brown and the current America East player of the week Michael Palacio. It was Palacio’s team leading fifth assist and ninth point.

    Towson managed only three shots on goal, all by junior midfielder Cesar Cisneros, who was able to connect on two of them. He tied the game in the 80th minute after he found a loose ball in the box and fired it past SB goaltender Dawid Ditrich. The game remained tied after one overtime, and in the second OT, in the 102nd minute of the game, Cisneros was able to rifle a strike past Ditrich from 25 yards out after a throw in. It was Towson’s only shot in the overtime periods. The Seawolves managed to hit the target three times in the first overtime, but were turned away each time.

    The game was the fourth all time meeting between the two schools, and Towson now holds a 3-1 advantage.

    The Seawolves season continues on Tuesday night when they host Marist at LaValle Stadium. The game is scheduled to start at 7:00 PM.
