Panther men’s soccer fall on late strike, 1-0

NEW LONDON, Conn. — Host Connecticut College on Saturday connected on a free kick in the final minute of regulation to edge the Middlebury College men’s soccer team, 1-0, in a rain-soaked NESCAC contest.
The free kick came from about 24 yards out from the left post and curled a shot just over the defensive wall toward the near side. The ball skipped off the wet turf, and when Panther goalie Matthew Hyer (nine saves) couldn’t handle it cleanly Matt Butera tapped the rebound into the net.
The 2-0 Camels finished with a 20-12 advantage in shots, but the Panthers had been pressing over the previous 15 minutes. Camel goalie A.J. Marcucci made seven stops.
The 0-1-1 Panthers will host another NESCAC foe, Amherst, on Saturday at noon.
