Men's Soccer Suffers Loss At Bowdoin

September 26, 2009

Bowdoin's Tim Prior scored the game's only goal as the Polar Bear men's soccer team survived a defensive struggle against Middlebury on Saturday, 1-0. Bowdoin improves to 4-1-0 (2-1-0 NESCAC), while the Panthers fall to 3-2-1 (1-1-1 NESCAC).

The lone goal came in the 27th minute as a perfectly-played cross by Dan Chaffetz across the box to the waiting head of Tim Prior, who headed the delivery into the top-right corner. Bowdoin had a pair of attempts to push the lead even higher in the first half, hitting one post and having one offering swept off the goal line by a Middlebury defender.

Dan Hicks was forced to make only one stop for the Polar Bears in the shutout. Tim Cahill was credited with two stops for the Panthers.
