OKLAHOMA CITY- On Tuesday afternoon, the Cavaliers (2-5-2, 0-2 SAC) dropped a road contest against Mid-America Christian University (7-2, 1-1 SAC) by a final score of 6-2. The Evangels became the second straight opponent against the Cavs to score six goals in a game, but early on in the game, it looked like it was going to be a very tight contest.
MACU scored only three minutes into the game, but the Cavaliers tied the game at one, only five minutes later when Ruben Basurto (SR/Mexico) scored on a penalty kick. St. Gregory's then took a lead in the eighteenth minute of the game on a Frank Molina (JR/Houston, Texas) goal from the right wing. The Evangels tied the game at two in the thirty-fifth minute of the game, and from that point on they were able to dominate. MACU led the game 4-2 going into halftime, and then they were able to add two more insurance goals in the second half to put the game out of reach.
Declan Started the game in net, and made four saves, before being replaced by Paulo Lopez (SO/Oklahoma City, Okla.), who would make one more save. Lopez also added an assist in the game, on Frank Molina's goal. Ruben Basurto and Lesli Feh (FR/Ghana) each took two shots on goal, while Jordan McEvoy (NA/Dublin, Ireland), Frank Molina, and Vanja Radulovic (FR/Zagreb, Croatia) each took one shot on goal.
The Cavs will be back on the pitch on Tues., Oct. 10, when they play at Southwestern Christian University (9-2, 3-0 SAC) at 3 PM.
