Tulsa Men's Soccer Team Records 3-0 Win Over Drake
Sep 1, 2013
Des Moines, Iowa - Tony Rocha, Kyle Cumings and Bryce Follensbee all scored a goal for Tulsa in a 3-0 win over Drake on Sunday night at the Cownie Soccer Complex in Des Moines, Iowa. TU moved to 1-1 on the season, while DU fell to 0-2 overall.
"We challenged the guys before the game on their individual performances and they started the game really well," Head Coach Tom McIntosh said. "We possessed the ball well, had good movement from our strikers and created a lot of chances in the opening half. In the second half, Drake pressed more and we went through a 15-20 minute spell where we were pinned in a little bit and we didn't press the ball like we are capable of doing."
Rocha stuck first as he punched in a rebound off a shot attempt taken by Cristian Mata at the 16:29 mark. Cumings made it 2-0 in the 35th minute as he scored from about nine yards out into the lower left corner.
Follensbee headed in goal off a corner kick that was taken by Ray Saari in the 73rd minute for the final score.
Cumings led the Hurricane attack with four shots, three of which were on goal, while Omar Mata added three attempts. Cody Mumma logged all 90 minutes in goal and earned five saves for his first career shutout.
TU had a 19-12 lead in shots, including a 7-6 advantage in shots on goal, and had a 12-7 lead in corner kicks.
The Bulldogs' Addison Eck and Garrett Crall each had three shots, while a trio of players had two attempts. Rich Gallagher logged 77:51 in the goal and picked up four saves, while Darrin MacLeod finished the game and had no saves.
Tulsa will return to action on Friday, Sept. 6th against Ohio State. Game time is set for 7:30 pm at the Hurricane Soccer and Track Stadium.
