Men's Soccer Falls in Season Opener
WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Howard men's soccer team dropped its season opener to American, 5-0 Friday evening on the opening day of the D.C. Cup.
The first period ended with the Eagles taking a 4-0 lead. American's Daniel Shannon knocked a shot past senior Adisa Bekoe (Belmont, Trinidad/Queen's Royal College) three minutes in to give AU a 1-0 lead. Anthony Moy added another goal shortly thereafter and Nick Kapus made it 3-0 after scoring unassisted at 30:52.
American's offense kept the pressure on Bekoe all night, taking 29 shots, while the Eagle defensive pressure held the Bison to two shots in the decision.
Sophomore Rodino Wright (St. Elizabeth, Jamaica/Munro College H.S.) and senior Guilherme Fonseca (Sao Paolo, Brazil/Shepherd Univ.) had one shot each.
HU returns to action on at the D.C. Cup on Sunday with a matchup against George Washington at noon.
