FUS men's soccer loses
HIRAM - The Franciscan University of Steubenville men's soccer team dropped a 3-1 count to host Hiram College Sunday.
Hiram got on the board with a goal in the 33rd minute of play, but the Barons responded quickly. Joseph Duran found Joseph Francis for a goal two minutes later to knot the score at 1-1 heading into the halftime break.
"When we played Hiram last year they really shut us down and locked us into their half of the field," FUS coach Ward Rogers said, "but that didn't happen this year. We had some really good second chances and we developed the play really well. In terms of how well we've played against this team in the past, we really progressed.
"In the second half their pace got to us a little bit. Coming out of halftime we were playing really well, but it was really their pace and quickness that got to us.
"They had some players that they brought in the second half that were faster than the players who were playing in the first half."
FUS keeper Eddie Huber made seven saves.
The Barons (2-3) host Westminster at 5 p.m. Thursday.

Pittsburgh's James Neal opened the scoring 47 seconds in. Columbus' Artem Anisimov and James Wisniewski had goals in the first period.
