Battlers Too Much For Cavaliers

(NORTH CANTON, Ohio) – A reunion of the 1993 men's soccer team that advanced to the national tournament was spoiled as Walsh fell 3-0 to Alderson Broaddus in G-MAC play on Saturday night. The Cavaliers (4-4-1, 2-4-1) outshot the Battlers (4-4-1, 4-2-1) 19-14, but couldn't find the back of the net despite many close opportunities.

Alderson Broaddus initially struck late in the first half as Gary Daniel scored on an assist from Nevado Elliot. From there, the Battlers added scores in the 70th and 80th minutes to put the game out of reach. Walsh threw 11 shots at AB's keeper Francisco Yudego with five of them being on goal in the second half.

Members of the 1993 team were recognized at halftime. That year, the Cavs finished 21-4 to set a new record for wins in a season and winning percentage.

Walsh closes out the mini three-game home stand with Tiffin on Thursday. Afterwards, the Maroon and Gold heads on the road for their next five contests. Kickoffs with the Dragons is set for 5 p.m.
