DETROIT, Mich. -- A late first half tally and a converted early second half penalty kick lifted the visiting Madonna University Crusaders (6-5-2, 4-2-1 WHAC) to a 3-0 victory over the Mustangs (9-5-0, 4-3-0 WHAC).
With less than thirty seconds remaining in the first half, the Mustangs' Khalid Suleiman (Tulkarm, Palestine/Madonna University) narrowly missed a header wide left to put Marygrove ahead. Instead, the Crusaders took advantage of the missed opportunity to quickly produce a goal of their own at the 44:47 mark to go into the half up 1-0 off the foot of David Edwardson.
The Mustangs outshot Madonna 7-5 in the first half despite being down by a goal at the break.
In the second half, the Crusaders' Edwardson would put home a PK in the 51st minute to put the Mustangs in a 2-0 hole. Edwardson would add another two minutes later to cap off the scoring. The loss drops the Mustangs behind the Crusaders in the latest WHAC standings.
Despite being handed the loss, the Mustangs outshot the Crusaders 13-7 (6-6 on goal) in the conference matinee held on the campus of Marygrove College. Gonzalo Caceres (Detroit, Mich./Southwestern) led the Mustangs with three shots on the afternoon.
The Mustangs will hit the road Wednesday (Oct. 23) for a critical road conference match at Aquinas College. Game time is set for 4:00 p.m.
