Men's Soccer falls in exhibition play at Kentucky

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The Lipscomb men’s soccer team went on the road Wednesday night to take on Conference USA foe Kentucky in exhibition play and came away with a 4-0 loss at the Wendell & Vickie Bell Soccer Complex.

Kentucky jumped out in front early, scoring its first goal in the fifth minute of the match off the foot of Napo Matsoso before Kristoffer Tollefsen scored 10 minutes later to make it 2-0.

In the second half Noah Hutchins added the third goal for the Wildcats in the 48th minute off an assist from Matsoso, while the final blow came off the foot of Andrew McKelvey in the 69th minute. Kentucky held a 17-5 edge in total shots and an 8-2 advantage in shots on goal on the night.

Sophomore Logan Paynter led the Bisons with two shot attempts, while Daniel Vieira, Ivan Alvarado and Matt Kerridge each had one. Vieira and Kerridge put the two shots on frame for Lipscomb.

After playing the full 90 minutes between the pipes in Saturday’s match with Louisville where he collected eight saves, Micah Bledsoe got the start again in Lexington. The junior goalkeeper made two saves in 71:10 minutes of action before sophomore Nate Davis finished out the rest of the match. Davis left with one save.

 

Up Next:

Lipscomb will wrap up preseason play Sunday in Nashville when the Memphis Tigers venture to the Lipscomb Soccer Complex for a 5 p.m. kickoff.

The Bisons will then open up regular season play on Friday Aug. 28 in a 7 p.m. match at Belmont.
