Portsmouth, Ohio – Shawnee State men's soccer fell at home on Tuesday night, losing to Asbury (Ky.) 3-1.
Shawnee State would strike first after a scoreless first half. Mitchell Patchett (FR/Dublin, Ohio) would handle a lovely ball from Caspar Nolte (JR/Germantown, Ohio) near the top of the Asbury box, and would smoothly dribble into the back line until stopped. However, his efforts were not in vain as Alek Blevins (FR/South Webster, Ohio) would latch onto a pass to give Shawnee State the lead in the 60th minute and score his first career goal.
The lead would be short-lived as Asbury would get the goal back on a penalty. Kobe Heimberger (FR/Hilliard, Ohio) would commit a penalty in the Shawnee State box, and the penalty would be fired home by Isaac Amaya in the 64th minute. The young Kenyan would pop up again in the 72nd minute, finishing a Sigey Owen run to give Union a 2-1 lead.
Asbury weren't done and would get a much-needed insurance goal in the 85th minute. Shawnee State would play a lazy pass on-side, allowing Noah Welch to latch on to the back pass to score his first goal of the season to seal the game.
The loss drives Shawnee State to 0-3-0. Asbury improve to 1-0-0.
Shawnee State are back in action this Saturday when they travel to Indiana to play against Judson (Ill.). Kickoff is at 2:00pm.
