Men's Soccer vs Eastern Illinois

The team beat Eastern Illinois University 3-2.

A red card for the Panthers early in the game forced the team to continue play with only 10 players.

The Panthers still managed to make the first goal of the night, which was followed by a goal from Belmont sophomore Matteo Bennati just a minute later.

The score was tied at 1-1 through the second half until the Panthers managed to pull ahead with 10 minutes left in the game.

The Bruins answered with a goal from senior Adam Volodor, tying the game up 2-2. With just 47 seconds left on the clock, Dagnoni scored, securing the win for the Bruins.

Tuesday’s win brought Belmont’s overall record to 2-5-1. The Bruins will try for another win at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville on Saturday.
