Coming off last Sunday’s win against Wilkes University, the Pacers were looking to make it two straight in a non-conference game against Ithaca College.

Ithaca had other ideas, blanking the Pacers 4-0. According to, it was the first time the men’s soccer team had a shut-out loss in 16 games.

The Bombers started the attack early with a header from midfielder Nathan Schoen in the 19th minute. Ithaca’s Sam Boylan and Kevin Turi both contributed assists on the play.

Twenty minutes later Ithaca’s Alexander Brosnihan hit the back of the net off another assist from Boylan.

After the break, Brosnihan scored again off Turi’s second assist on the day.

Just seven minutes later, the Bombers finished off their scoring. Senior midfielder Scott Halpern assisted Schoen for Shoen’s second goal of the game.

The Pacers were able to muster only seven shots on the day to the Bombers’ 18. The Bombers also had the advantage in corner kicks 6-1.

Marywood looks to get back to .500 when they host Berkeley (N.Y.) College this Tuesday at 4 p.m.
