The St. Bonaventure men’s soccer team fell short in a 1-0 loss to George Washington on Wednesday night. This loss brings the Bonnies’ season record to 2-8.
The sun went down, the lights came on and both teams were ready to play for this evening game.
The first half of the game was nothing short of exciting. Both the Bonnies and Colonials would have many shots just miss the goal.
St. Bonaventure midfielder Isaac Boamah had one of his shots bounce off the goal post 11 minutes into the game.
It didn’t take long for the teams to get aggressive in their play. The Bonnies were given two yellow cards in the first half.
Both the Bonnies and Colonials were left scoreless at the end of the first half.
The second half would be a roller coaster ride to the finish. The Bonnies and Colonials got very physical in this half.
This physical play resulted in the Bonnies accumulating a total of six yellow cards in the game. The Colonials would only get one on the day.
No players would receive multiple yellow cards in the game, allowing them to continue to play.
Back and forth both the teams went until in the 73rd minute of the game, George Washington’s Tom Cooklin scored to put the Colonials up 1-0.
SBU will travel to Ohio on Saturday to take on the Dayton Flyers in an A10 matchup.
Their next home game is Oct. 19 against George Mason.
