Men's Soccer Shut Out by Oral Roberts
Sept. 10, 2002
FORT WORTH, Texas - The TCU men's soccer team was shut out by the Golden Eagles of Oral Roberts Tuesday night 2-0 at the Frogs first home game of the season. The game was played at Garvey-Rosenthal Stadium.
Sophomore goalkeeper Justin Durst started in place of senior Michael Lahoud who was out nursing a pulled groin muscle. Durst recorded eight saves in 90 minutes. "I want to see us play with pride", said Durst after the game, "I'm going to work hard and work with my teammates to prepare for this weekend's tournament."
Senior midfielder Nick Browne recorded a team high three shots and two shots-on-goal after missing the last two games due to travel obligations with TCU's football team, where he acts as the starting placekicker.
In a very physical game, Oral Roberts managed to hit TCU with 14 fouls, while TCU rallied back with 11 as well as a yellow card.
Associate head coach Blake Amos said after the game, "We've had about 55 good minutes this season, out of four games." "I'm curious to see about this weekend, we have a chance to go 0-6, if we lose both games this weekend, the truth about this season will come out."
Scoring for the Golden Eagles were Trey Vaut and Sun Potter. Vaut's unassisted goal came with 34:10 left in the first half, after a misplay back to the keeper (Durst), who
saved the ball, then was scored on from aboout 10 yards out. Potter's goal came in the
second half with the assist coming from Dave Leung.
