Tiger men’s soccer falls at home to Xavier
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - The Memphis Tigers Men’s Soccer team opened a 5-game home stand hosting the Xavier Muskateers.
Memphis was all over the Muskateers pounding shot after shot at the Xavier keeper.
Some of them were straight blasts. Others off-set pieces.
All were either saved or deflected like one shot from Christenson. The defender got a piece of right to the goalie.
Nil-Nil in the second half with less than 15 minutes to play. Xavier’s corner trickled through to Kendall Joiner and he toe-poked it into the upper left corner for the only goal of the night.
Xavier hangs on to win it. Final Score 1-Nil.
