GETTYSBURG, Pa. - The Catholic University men's soccer team continued its great run of form Tuesday evening with a 1-0 win over non-conference opponent Gettysburg on the road.
The Cardinals (10-5) have now won a staggering six straight matches in their last three weeks of play. Even more impressive, head coach Travis Beauchamp's men have not given up a goal in five consecutive games.
Catholic played its tough Centential Conference opponent evenly for most of the contest, matching in shots at 10-10. The visitors took four corner kicks to the Bullets' one, but made no mistake in their best chance of the game to get a goal.
Senior Aaron Boyle played just 22 minutes in the game, but took his chance in the 38th minute to score the game-winner. Boyle took possession on a breakaway and slotted his shot to the left side of the net for the goal.
Gettysburg (7-7-1) kept the pressure on the Cardinals' defense, but goalkeeper Jack Long may have had his best performance of the season. Long made a season-high seven saves to earn his fifth straight clean sheet victory.
The men square off in a huge Landmark Conference matchup Saturday, October 27 at 1 p.m. at home against Elizabethtown. The winner of the match will claim the No.1 seed in the conference playoffs.
