Trailblazers drop to 4-8-1 overall with a conference record of 0-3-1.
The men’s Trailblazers soccer team has suffered another setback, dropping two games in the past week. The team drops to 4-8-1 overall, with a conference record of 0-3-1.
The team managed to break a losing streak last week, defeating Green Mountain College, 2-1. However the team was unable to maintain the momentum and the next game, this past Saturday’s match with Framingham resulted in a crushing loss.
The conference game was a particulary rough defeat, as the Trailblazers had actually come out strong, taking a 2-0 lead in the first half.
This was a refreshing change for the Trailblazers, who have struggled in the past with taking advantage of goal oppurtunities.
But Framingham refused to allow them to rest easy, applying almost constant pressure to MCLA, eventually managing to put one past goaltender Dillon Wager in the first half.
The Trailblazers maintained their one goal lead deep into the second half, when Framingham’s Romulo Carlhavo tied the game.
Overtime followed, but it was only a matter of minutes before Framingham had scored once more, walking off with the victory.
The Trailblazers luck did not improve in the next game, this one a non-conference bout with Southern Vermont.
Only fourteen minutes into the first half, Southern Vermont Erik Argueta fired one into MCLA’s net.
Southern Vermont would later add onto the damage in the second half, ending with a 2-0 final score.
None of the Blazers ten shots on net ever found their target.
