Crusaders

Hattiesburg, MS.- William Carey University ended Saturday night at Crusader Field in a 0-0 tie against the University of St. Thomas in what was a strong display of defense from both teams.

William Carey and St. Thomas were locked in a defensive gridlock in the first half, where each team only managed to take three shots. Neither team capitalized on any of their shots leaving the game scoreless at the half. Both teams struggled to find any rhythm for the first thirty-five minutes of the second half. However, with ten minutes to go in the game the Crusaders stepped up their attack, but St. Thomas goalkeeper, Jason Taffet, came up with some big saves to push the game into overtime. The Crusaders continued their offensive play into the first period of overtime but could still not get the ball past the St. Thomas goalkeeper. The final overtime was more of the same. The Crusaders fired numerous shots and still came up empty handed.

William Carey held a 21 to 9 advantage in shots. Helge Pietschmann led the way for the Crusaders with seven of those twenty-one shots coming from him

William Carey University men's soccer returns to action on September 7th in Orange Beach, AL where they will take on Vanguard University. Kickoff is set for 4:30 p.m.
