UPLAND, Ind. – The Taylor men's soccer team could not crack the Cougar defense in its league-opener on Saturday, resulting in a 2-0 loss at Turner Stadium.
The first half was evenly matched, with neither team getting many scoring opportunities. Spring Arbor (7-2-1, 1-0 CL) tallied eight shots, with TU recording three.
The Trojans (2-6-2, 0-1 CL) were unable to keep the Cougars off the scoreboard in the second half, as SAU notched two second-half goals to secure the victory. With those two scores, Taylor has now been outscored 15 to seven in the second half of contests this season.
