Men’s Soccer: Ohio State drops two games in the Dayton Classic

The Ohio State men’s soccer team headed to Dayton this weekend to take part in a two game tournament.

The Buckeyes faced off against Marshall on Friday, and Milwaukee on Sunday, losing both contests by a score of 1-0.

As has been the story throughout the early part of this season, the Buckeye offense created chances for itself in the form of corner kicks and shots on goal, but were unable to get on the board.

The Buckeyes nearly took the lead in the 16th minute against Milwaukee, but sophomore midfielder Mitch Bergman’s goal was called back due to an offsides call.

The Ohio State defense, despite sporting a goal differential of minus two, held strong against both Marshall and Milwaukee attacks.

Marshall scored in the second minute to get off to a quick start on Friday evening, but the Buckeyes rallied to battle evenly with the Thundering Herd, though ultimately unable to find an equalizer.

In goal, redshirt junior goalkeeper Parker Siegfried played well, making multiple impressive saves throughout the weekend to keep his team in the match.

The Buckeyes will play once again on Friday when they take on South Florida at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium.
