Indianola, Iowa - September 27, 2017 - The men's soccer team looked to carry over the momentum from their near shutout the other day in today's match against Simpson College. The Storm had other plans however, and the Tigers fell 3-0 against a tough team.
Iowa Wesleyan's defense was tested early as Simpson brought the pressure from the start. The Storm struck first, scoring the first goal of the game just under seventeen minutes into play. Blas Villaseca (FR/Spain) had a shot at goal late in the first period, but he was unable to get it passed the Storm goalie and the half would end with IW trailing by one. The Tigers were only able to get three shots off, while Simpson was able to take eight shots in the first half.
Simpson once again pressured the Tiger defense to open the second half. They extended their lead to 2-0 with a goal just over seventy-one minutes in. Iowa Wesleyan would give up another goal about a minute later to trail 3-0 with 72:47 on the clock. Simpson's defense was too much for IW, as the Tigers were only able to get three more shots off before the end of the match.
Iowa Wesleyan fell 3-0 after getting outshot 17-8 in the match. The Tigers would finish with six saves, three each by Trevor Haasis (SO/Williamsburg, IA) and Elijah Perez (SO/Tulare, CA). Blas Villaseca had a team high three shots, two on goal in the loss to the Storm.
The Tigers will return to action on Saturday, September 30th. They will travel to St. Louis, Missouri to begin SLIAC play against Webster University. Iowa Wesleyan is now 4-4-1 on the season.
