BEL AIR, Md.—The Harford men’s soccer team fired 10 shots on goal, but couldn’t sneak one past the keeper as it fell, 2-0, to CCBC-Catonsville on a wet and windy Friday night at Harford Stadium.
The Fighting Owls (4-6-1, 2-5-1 MDJUCO) held a 17-12 advantage over the Cardinals (5-3-0, 4-2-0 MDJUCO) in total shots, with 10 of those shots on target, compared to four by Catonsville.
The game was a tale of two halves as the Owls dominated play in the first half, firing a total of 12 shots to Catonsville’s four, but the Cardinals scored twice in the second half and held an 8-5 advantage on shots.
The first, and eventual game-wining, goal came just 42 seconds into the second half as David Grimes gathered a ball from Nick Finnegan during a scramble in the box and snuck it past freshman goalie Ta ylor Dize (Bel Air, Md./Salem Christian) to give the Cardinals a 1-0 advantage.
Ryan Young added an insurance goal about 15 minutes later as sloppy defense by the Owls let a ball from the 18 yard line dribble past Dize into the lower right corner to give Catonsville the 2-0 win.
Harford had plenty of scoring chances but just couldn’t put the ball past Mike Warejko who totaled 10 saves on the day. Dize came up with two saves, while the Owls held a 5-3 advantage on corner kicks.
The Fighting Owls return to action on Tuesday, Sept. 30 when they travel to Anne Arundel for a 4:00 p.m. match.
