A fluke goal was the difference for St. Francis as they got by the Foresters 1-0. Thirteen minutes into the first half, Cougar Michael Bitler mis-hit a ball. The wind held it up and it hit the post then ricocheted into the goal off the back of HU keeper Jarrod Bennett.
Despite the loss, Coach Lawson was pleased with the team's overall play. "We were relaxed and it showed," said Lawson. "We had a solid effort from everyone including our bench, which provided excellent opportunities in the second half. "The guys put the early goal behind them and immediately got back to playing their possession game for the full 90 minutes. This is definitely a performance we have been looking for."
The Foresters fall to 1-9 on the year and 0-3 in the MCC.
