Taylor Men’s Soccer Defeated by No. 22 Indiana Wesleyan in CL Matchup

UPLAND, Ind. – Taylor fell to Grant County foe No. 22 Indiana Wesleyan (8-2-2, 2-1-0), 2-0, in a physical matchup Saturday night in front of a packed Turner Stadium.

The first half was back-and-forth between the Grant County teams with both squads firing off seven shots. Taylor led the way with three shots on target compared to just two from Indiana Wesleyan.

IWU took the first shot of the game but the Trojans quickly responded with two of their own, forcing saves with each shot from the Wildcats’ keeper.

After the Wildcats hit the crossbar, Sam Spiegel made a terrific save, keeping the match level at zero in the 15th minute.

Brian Matipa then had the best chance for TU in the entire match. A great through ball found Matipa in the box with only the goalie to beat, but Aaron Carr made a great save on a hard shot from Matipa that led to a Taylor corner, one of its four in the first half.

While both teams had another chance, the match was even at zero at halftime.

IWU grabbed control in the second half scoring two goals from Jose Pizarro, both being incredible shots Spiegel could do nothing about.

The Trojans struggled to find space and fired only a single shot in the first 39 minutes of the second stanza.

The best opportunity of the second half fell to Cam Broadfoot, who found space on the far edge of the box and launched a shot that was parried away just before crossing underneath the crossbar.

Spiegel finished the night with eight saves to extend his CL lead to 57, ten more than the next closest keeper.

Taylor (3-5-4, 1-1-1) returns to action next Saturday, October 8, to take on Spring Arbor (4-3-4, 1-0-2) on the road with a scheduled 7:00 pm kickoff.
