Men's Soccer Grounded By Flying Fleet
Due West, SC - The Crusaders’ struggles continue as they fell to Erskine College 4-1 after the weather pushed the game back to a 9 pm kickoff on Saturday night.
It took 10 minutes for Erskine to get on the board as Joe O’Neal opened the scoring on a goal from 30 yards out. The Crusaders would respond 17 minutes later as senior Jonathan Arango would even up the scoring on an assist from junior Thales Wieczorek.
The tie would only last for seven minutes however, as Ross Henderson would score a header off a free kick with the assist going to Joe O’Neal. Erskine would pad their lead with goals coming in the 47th and 55th minutes from Andrew Settlemire.
The Crusaders have recorded one win in their last 16 games dating back to last year. As questions abound as to what is needed to turn the team around.
The Crusaders (0-3, 0-1 Conference Carolinas) will be in action again in Newberry, SC to take on Newberry College on Sept. 17 at 4 pm.
