Men’s Soccer Battles to Scoreless First Half, Falls 3-0 to Cal State Northridge
NORTHRIDGE, Calif. – The University at Albany men’s soccer team entered the second half against Cal State Northridge tied 0-0, but couldn’t keep the momentum going and lost 3-0 on Friday night.
The Great Danes had two opportunities to take the lead midway through the first half. Midfielder Anthony Rozzano fired a shot from the top of the box in the 24th minute that required a diving save from Northridge goalkeeper Adam Hobbs. Five minutes later Martin Gorrie hit the crossbar on a shot from just outside the 18.
The Matadors, who are receiving votes in the latest NSCAA Poll, scored all three of their goals in a span of less than 10 minutes in the second half. Two of Northridge’s goals came on service attempts in front of the UAlbany net. The Matadors took a 6-0 advantage on corner kicks, with five in the second half.
The Great Danes will look to rebound from their 0-1 start against Cal State Fullerton on Sunday at 5 p.m. ET.
