September 20, 2015

Ripon, WI -- The Beloit College Men's Soccer team won 2-0 at Ripon College Sunday to split their two MWC road weekend games.  The Buccaneers fell 4-0 at St. Norbert College on Saturday.

Sunday, Rikley Buckingham broke up a scoreless game at the 38:50 mark off an assist from Isaiah Turner-Wyatt.  Jose Gutierrez added insurance with just over 17 minutes remaining in regulation with his first career collegiate goal, with the assist going again to Turner-Wyatt.

Jere Bauer made the shutout stand, making eight saves on the day in net.  Ripon had 16 shots to Beloit's nine while the Bucs had four corner kicks to one for the Red Hawks.

On Saturday, St. Norbert scored three second-half goals to wrap up the game while holding the Buccaneers down.  SNC scored at 38:38 to break the scoreless tie and then added three tallies in the first 24 minutes of the second half.

The Green Knights out-shot the Buccaneers 18-2, with neither of Beloit's shots on goal.  St. Norbert also had a 5-1 advantage on corners.  Jere Bauer made six saves in the first 72 minutes of play before Asa Hatten added one in relief.

The Bucs are off until Saturday, when they travel to Monmouth College for a 3:30 p.m. MWC match.
