Men's Soccer Drops 1-0 Decision on the Road at Hartford

The Central Connecticut men's soccer team dropped to 1-2 overall on the season with a 1-0 loss on Saturday night at the University of Hartford. The only goal of the match came on an own goal early in the first half. Central returns to action at Yale on Wednesday night beginning at 7 p.m.

The own goal came less than five minutes into the first half as the Hawks centered the ball into the box and it was stopped by Blue Devil keeper Anthony Occhialini. The Blue Devil keeper lost control of the ball when trying to put it back into play and it slipped behind him into the net.

Neither team threatened much offensively for the remainder of the match, combining for only three total shots on goal in the match. Hartford recorded the shutout with just one save, while Occhialini made two saves in net for the Blue Devils.

Each team had six shots in the match, with Hartford having five of those in the first half and the Blue Devils having five in the second. Central had the only corner kick of the match.

The Blue Devils, now 1-2, will return to action on Wednesday night at Yale beginning at 7 p.m.
