Stags Soccer Plays to Scoreless Draw With Chapman, Increases Unbeaten Streak to Six
|Shots (on goal)
CLAREMONT, Calif. - The Claremont-Mudd-Scripps men's soccer team held a 12-3 advantage in shots and hit the post in the first half, but settled for a 0-0 tie with Chapman on Saturday at Pritzlaff Field.
The tie increases the current unbeaten streak for the Stags to six games (4-0-2) as they move to 6-2-4 overall and 4-2-3 in the SCIAC, Chapman moves to 5-4-5 overall and 2-2-5 in the SCIAC.
Eric Sanchez hit the post late in the first half, and James Gomez had a strong chance late in the game that was saved by Chapman goalie Alex Glynn with less than three minutes remaining. Kevin Box went the distance to get the shutout, making one save for CMS.
The game was a 2 p.m. start in unseasonably hot conditions, and the Stags utilized a lot of their depth, leaving much of their starting lineup on the bench for the first 20-plus minutes of the second half to try to get a final push at a go-ahead goal. CMS put consistent pressure on Chapman, but the Panthers' back four held up and were able to keep the Stags off the scoreboard.
CMS will be back in action on Wednesday for a road game at Whittier, and then return home for Senior Day next Saturday at 2 p.m. in a non-league game against Bethesda.
