Men’s Soccer top Lake Forest

Nodarse, Kyle

The men’s soccer team resumed conference play this past Saturday against the Lake Forest Forresters in a close fought battle at home. The men’s team was up to the challenge of remaining undefeated in the conference and came away with a 2-1 victory on goals by T.J. Frett and Chris Carlson late in the game.
The Forresters jumped out to a lead early in the second half on an unassisted goal by Kahiye Hassan, but the Vikings refused to quit. Junior T.J. Frett took a pass from Stephen Exarhos and scored midway through the second period to tie the game up at one all. With less than 10 minutes to play, senior Chris Carlson, who was moved to forward to provide some experience up top, scored on another unassisted goal to give the Vikings the 2-1 lead that they would not relinquish.
Starting goalie Steven Schnorr returned to the pitch after an injury had sidelined him the past few games, and made multiple saves to keep the Vikings in the game.
The Vikings remain undefeated at 3-0 in conference play, and their next conference game, scheduled for Oct. 5, is against Carroll College. Their next home game is Sept. 30 against UW-Oshkosh at 4 p.m.
