The Western Mustangs men’s soccer team were at home to the Brock Badgers on Sunday afternoon in front of a crowd of approximately 130 people at Mustang Field. Western came into the match undefeated following a win over McMaster, while Brock was recovering from their first loss of the season vs. Guelph earlier in the weekend.
The first half saw plenty of action, as Brock was able to keep up the pressure on the home squad in front of their fans. Western’s most dangerous players on the field were their Striker #17 Lucas Ventura (Toronto, Ontario) , and attacking Midfielder #10 Reza Nafar, but Brock Goalkeeper Matthew Haggith was up to the challenge, with his best save of the half came in the 38th minute. Brock’s Freshman Forward #9 Anthony Smith looked to continue his scoring streak, however his best chance went off the bar in the 24th minute keeping the first-half scoreless.
