Shepherd Rams men’s soccer team continues early season struggles with loss to East Stroudsburg University

Vaughn Brewer, Sports Writer

The Rams traveled to Pennsylvania to take on the East Stroudsburg Warriors Tuesday afternoon. Unfortunately, the early season slide continued with a 6-0 shutout loss.

It is a recurring theme for the Shepherd men, as they have not been able to shore up the defense so far this season, and it continues.

The Rams offense could not keep up the pace set by East Stroudsburg.

For the entire contest, the Rams had just three shots with only one of them deemed on goal. The Warriors on the other hand had 18 total shots with 13 on goal.

For the Rams, that just isn’t a recipe for success.

This game was over by halftime as the Warriors netted five goals, and it was too steep an uphill battle to come back as the Rams had to be eager to make it back to Shepherdstown.

The scoring began just the second minute into the game as Warrior midfielder Eddy Enowbi scored his first of the season. Again, Warrior midfielder Eddy Enowbi netted his second goal of the season at the 13-minute mark.

Other Warriors who scored on the day were midfielder Nils Bjorquist at the 34-minute mark, attacker Anton Lysell at the 40-minute and 42-minute marks. To top it all off, East Stroudsburg Warriors Ahmad Awadalla secured his first goal of the season to make it 6-0 at the 73-minute mark.

The Rams will look to improve on their (0-6-1) record when they take on Daemen College in Shepherdstown on Monday, Sept 25, at 2:30 in the afternoon.
