BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - The Birmingham-Southern men's soccer team dropped their final conference match of the season today, 2-1 to Austin College. The Panthers are now 11-5-2 heading into their final match of the 2009 season on Friday.
The 'Roos got on the board first, in the 29th-minute, when Luis Castillo grabbed an unassisted goal on a ball that got away from BSC keeper #Clint Lum#. The Panthers answered in the 38th thanks to a corner kick from #Andrew Shelton# who set the ball up for #Tyler Evans# in front of the Austin net. The two teams took the 1-1 tie into the halftime.
The game remained knotted at one goal apiece deep into the second half, but a late surge from Castillo, this time assisted from Alex Dawson, allowed the 'Roos to come away with the 2-1 victory over the Panthers.
The Panthers will wrap up the 2009 season this Friday, November 13 as they host Berry College for a 7:00 p.m. match at BSC Soccer Park. As it is the final home match of the season, BSC will honor #Scott Shelton# and #Stephen Rumble# before the match.
