FUS men win
STEUBENVILLE - Late-game heroics by freshman Joe Duran and sophomore John Imbimbo propelled the Franciscan University of Steubenville men's soccer team to its first victory of 2013, 4-3, over St. Vincent College Sunday.
Down 3-2, Duran tied the game for the Barons in the 87th minute with a rocket off his right foot from outside the box. Twelve seconds later, another shot from Duran deflected in front of the net where Imbimbo tapped it in for the game-winning goal. The game also marked the first Barons victory over the Bearcats.
"We played really well in the first half," FUS head coach Ward Rogers said. "We made a couple of mistakes so at halftime we talked about how if we cut the mistakes out and kept the aggression going we would have a good second half."
The Barons host Thiel College at 5 p.m. Wednesday.
FUS women lose
STEUBENVILLE - The Franciscan University of Steubenville women's soccer team dropped a 1-0 decision at home to St. Vincent College Sunday.
"This was a tough loss but St. Vincent is always a very good team," head coach Clare McBane said. "They've beat us in the past and it's always very even like it was today."
With no conference games until October, McBane said her team is using the non-conference schedule as a time for training and to work on challenges for when conference play does come around.
"The girls are working really hard in practice and we are looking at this entire time as training," McBane said. "We are working just has hard in practices as we are in games so they were tired for this game."
The Lady Barons host Thiel College at 3 p.m. Wednesday.
