HIRAM, Ohio – The Hiram College men's soccer team dropped a 2-0 loss to conference rival Oberlin on Tuesday night.

The Yeomen improve to a 13-3-1 (5-2 NCAC) record on the season, while the Terriers fall to 6-8-2 (3-5 NCAC).

Both teams went scoreless in the first half. Although Oberlin outshot Hiram 5-1 in the half, neither team was able to gain the lead.

Oberlin got on the board in the 69th minute when Adam Chazin-Gray fired a shot off of a deflection that made it past Hiram goalkeeper Luke Wilhelm. The Yeomen added to their lead ten minutes later when Brian James passed the ball to Nick Wertman, who placed it in the upper right corner of the net to give Oberlin the 2-0 lead.

Although Quinn Galecki made a last-minute shot attempt in the 86th minute, the Terriers were unable to score and the Yeomen took home the victory.

The Yeomen outshot the Terriers 9-4 in the match and held a 3-0 advantage in corner kicks.
