No Storybook Ending

Our nephew’s soccer team fought the good fight in the first round of the NCAA tournament, but there was no storybook ending. They got the #9 (at the time) ranked team in the country, York (PA). The match was in Hoboken at Steven’s Institute of Technology (ranked #5) so I was able to go see it.

You could tell from the beginning that York was good, particularly their defense. Someone told me over the season they only gave up on average 4 shots on goal per game (not 4 goals, 4 shots).

Mount Saint Mary played them tough, sending it to overtime 0-0, but finally lost 1-0. York would go on to beat Stevens (also in OT).

But overall a great season, and something Mount Saint Mary can really build on. The team is young and almost everyone is back next year. Should be fun to watch.
