GREENSBURG, Pa. – The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford men's soccer team fell to Pitt-Greensburg, 3-0, Friday afternoon.
"We did not play up to our standard today," Head Coach Nate Whitehurst said. "Pitt-Greensburg was able to capitalize on its opportunities."
The two teams put together a tough first half, as both teams kept the opposition out of the goal for much of the first half.
Ethan Acaster fired a shot on goal, but the Greensburg keeper was able to make the save.
Pitt-Greensburg got on the board just 30 seconds before halftime, though, on a shot that hit the post and was sent in off a rebound.
Shortly after the start of the second half, Steven McFetridge tested the Greensburg keeper as he put a shot on goal but it was saved.
Pitt-Greensburg extended its lead 12 minutes into the second half, scoring off a rebound once again.
Eight minutes later at the 65-minute mark, Greensburg took a 3-0 lead on a shot that ricocheted off the post and in. Pitt-Greensburg would hold strong, as the three-goal lead would last until the final whistle.
Derrick Brock made four saves in goal for the Panthers.
Pitt-Bradford held Pitt-Greensburg to just two corner kick opportunities.
The Panthers will be in action next on Wednesday as they head to Hilbert.
