Men’s Soccer: Potomac State can’t catch Anne Arundel

ARNOLD, MD — Potomac State allowed the go-ahead goal mere seconds after scoring the equalizer Sunday afternoon and the defenses owned the second half as the Cats dropped their first road game of the season in a 2-1 decision to host Anne Arundel.

The Pioneers (8-1-1) scored first with 23:00 left in the opening half on an unassisted goal by Mike Thompson.

With 19 minutes remaining, Potomac State tied the score on a goal by Tyler Sisler that was assisted by Jacob Williams.

It took Anne Arundel only 11 seconds to counter, though, when Garrett McClendon scored on an assist from Christian Mastess. 

The Pioneers attempted 18 shots to the Catamounts’ (5-3) seven, and led in corner kicks 18-7. 

Alex Sproule finished with 13 saves for PSC, with his counterpart Brian Poole saving five. 

“We were hoping for a pivotal game coming off a big win over Christendom, but we fell a little short. We played tough, though, and the freshmen keep getting better. All we have to do is keep our heads up heading into region play,” said Potomac State coach Ray Kiddy. 

The Cats will play Montgomery at home Wednesday at 4:30.
