Men’s soccer loses close match in Peach Belt
By Matthew Osterhouse | email@example.com
The Flagler College Saints (7-4-1, 4-1-0 PBC) lost to the Lander University Bearcats (5-4-1, 2-0-1 PBC) 1-0 on Saturday night, ending the Saints’ six-match winning streak and receiving their first Peach Belt Conference loss.
The Saints outshot the Bearcats 16-9, had more possession and better scoring chances, but could not finish in front of the goal.
The game was tense from the start. Lander, the preseason favorite to win the conference, disrupted Flagler’s possession play early and forced long balls as the teams probed for chances to score.
