FORT WORTH, Texas - The TCU men's soccer team collected their second season win against C-USA foe Cincinnati 1-0, improving their conference record to 1-1, and 2-7 overall.

Freshman forward Chris Carman scored for the Frogs late in the first half on an assist from senior midfileder Jon Meyers. This was Carman's first goal of his TCU career.

Cincinnati out-shot the Frogs 20-7, but only collected two saves all night, compared to TCU senior goalkeeper Michael Lahoud who recorded eight saves, shutting out Cincinnati.

With only a minute and a half left in the game, Meyers and junior forward Aaron Miranda collided resulting in two bleeding heads and many stitches for both players.

Associate head coach Blake Amos said that tonight's game was, " A big win for us, the season's back on, and this puts us in a good position for our game next Friday [Oct. 5] against Marquette." "We played hard and a most importantly we got a win." Amos also said, "[Michael] Lahoud played great tonight, he didn't let anything get by him, and there were some close shots."

Commenting on the status of Miranda and Meyers, Amos said that they both will probably require some stitches and staples in each of their heads and will more than likely not play against College of Charleston on Sunday.

Next up for the Frogs is the continuation of the 2002 TCU/United America/Adidas Men's Soccer Classic when they take on College of Charleston on Sunday at 2:00 p.m.
