For their third consecutive MCC match, the Foresters failed to score a goal with Taylor University blanking HU 4-0 this time. The Foresters came with a strong possession game to begin the match, but a breakdown in marking in the box gave the Trojans the 1-0 lead at the 22 minute mark. Both teams generated quality scoring opportunities over the final 23 minutes of the half, but neither team could add to the score.
Seventeen minutes into the second period, a questionable no-call on goalie interference allowed Taylor a tap in to give the Trojans a 2-0 advantage. Down two goals, HU was forced to turn up the pressure, but then got caught on a breakaway making it 3-0. With just under five minutes to play, Taylor added its fourth goal to put the Foresters away.
"We had multiple shots inside the 12 and to come away empty is disheartening," said Coach Lawson. "Taylor is the 5th-ranked team in the region and we had our chances, but failed to capitalize."
With the loss, the Foresters fall to 2-10 on the year and 0-4 in conference play.
