Men's Soccer Falls to Potomac State 3-1

The College of Southern Maryland Hawks men's soccer team lost 3-1 to the WVU Potomac State College Catamounts on September 13.

CSM got on the scoreboard early in the third minute of the game when sophomore forward Oscar Perez caught Potomac State's goalkeeper out of the box, chipping his shot over the netminder's head to notch his third goal of the season.

Freshman forward Chad Farr helped facilitate CSM's attack, moving the ball into their offensive zone to create scoring opportunities for the Hawks. Farr ended the night with three shots on goal.

Potomac State took a 2-1 lead before halftime, finding the back of the net in the 40th and 43rd minutes.

After losing the momentum toward the end of the first half, CSM came out in the second half active on defense, forcing turnovers and moving the ball out of their zone. Freshman Sebastian Leon-Ramos did an excellent job filling in as the starting goalkeeper for the Hawks, tallying eight saves.

CSM head coach Tony Galeano said, "Sebastian did a wonderful job and it is nice to know that we can count on him for the future if needed. No complaints about his performance today."

CSM was able to create some scoring opportunities the rest of the way with passes into Potomac State's zone that led to shot attempts, but ultimately could not cash in.

The Hawks fell to 1-3 overall on the season with the loss.
