Waukesha, WI -- The Beloit College Men's Soccer team ran into one of the top teams in the nation on Wednesday night, dropping a 3-1 decision to Midwest Conference leader Carroll University in Waukesha.
The Pioneers are ranked 22nd in the most recent National Soccer Coaches of America Top 25 poll and third in the North region.
CU got on the board early, scoring just over four minutes into the game. They made it 2-0 at half with a score at 31:06.
The Bucs cut that deficit in half at 66:14 on a goal by Marc Robinson. Bo Wilkins got the assist.
But that's as close as Beloit would get as Carroll added some insurance with ten minutes left in regulation.
Nathan Lipps made eight saves in net for the Buccaneers.
The Bucs will look to turn around the loss this coming weekend as they host their final two home games of the season, playing Knox College on Saturday and Lake Forest College Sunday. Both games begin at 3:30 p.m.
