Tulsa Falls, 2-0, to Ohio State in Penn State Classic
Sept. 7, 2008
State College, Pennsylvania - The University of Tulsa's 13th-ranked men's soccer team dropped a 2-0 decision to 10th-ranked Ohio State on Sunday afternoon at the Penn State Classic in University Park, Pennsylvania. The Golden Hurricane fell to 2-1-1 on the season, while Ohio State moved to 3-0-1.
"We got out-worked," Head Coach Tom McIntosh said. "We gave away two early goals and had an uphill climb the entire contest. We competed better in the second half, but we just didn't play like we are capable of playing today."
Geoff Marsh put the Buckeyes on the board with just 4:59 ticked off the clock, to give OSU an early 1-0 lead. Twenty minutes later, Danny Irizarry knocked in penalty kick to give Ohio State a two-goal cushion that would carry them through the contest.
The Buckeyes out-shot the Golden Hurricane, 15-12, but both teams had six shots on goal. Tyrel Lacey registered four saves in the contest for 14 on the season.
Tulsa will return to action against Oakland on Friday, Sept. 12th in the SMU Mi Cocina Classic. Game time is set for 5:00 p.m. in Dallas, Texas.
