Tulsa's ninth-ranked men's soccer team dropped a 2-1 decision to Old Dominion in the Conference USA opener on Saturday night at the Hurricane Soccer and Track Stadium. TU fell to 5-2-1 on the season and 0-1 in C-USA, while ODU moved to 4-2-1 overall and 1-0 in the league.

"I thought we started the game well," Head Coach Tom McIntosh said. "We were moving the ball, created a couple good chances early on and obviously got the first goal. Then we went through a stretch where we were giving the ball away by forcing the ball forward. They are a counter-attack team and we allowed them to get into what they like to do. We made a couple adjustments and in the second half we came out very well. We were a bit more patient, kept the ball more and created a couple good chances. Overall I thought we played pretty well, it was an unfortunate PK, but we kept fighting and I was proud of the effort."

Abé Matamoros put TU on the board at the 16:45 mark off a pass from Akeil Barrett from 14 yards out on the right side. This was his first goal of the season and third of his career.

Geoffrey Hill evened the score in the 35th minute as he scored from 16 yards out off a cross from Ryan Condotta and the teams went into the break tied 1-1.

Ivan Militar scored the game-wining goal for the Monarchs off a penalty kick at the 73:39 mark.

Both teams had 14 shots in the game, while ODU had a 9-8 lead in shots on goal and a 4-3 advantage in corner kicks.

Matamoros and Cristian Mata each had three shots for TU, while Byron Knowles-Ramirez had two attempts. Jake McGuire registered six saves in 90 minutes between the posts.

Tulsa will return to action on Tuesday, October 1st against eighth-ranked Maryland. Game time is set for 6:00 pm Central in College Park, Md.
