Colleges: Lions have frustrating night, fall to Flagler

Flagler’s Conor Killeen scored the only goal of the game as Saint Leo's mens soccer team had a frustrating night in front of goal as it fell back to .500 for the season after a 1-0 defeat on Wednesday night.

Killeen scored on a pass from Mack Hough for his second goal of the season, converting one of the few chances Flagler (3-3-1) had on the night.

Saint Leo (3-3-0), on the other hand, carried the bulk of the play, but couldn’t find its scoring touch. While outshooting the Saints 23-6 for the game, the Lions only forced Saints goalkeeper Matt Gilman into three saves for the night, as the bulk of their shots were either blocked by an energetic Flagler defense, or missed the target.

Ruud Van Der Saar and Jonathan Glenn each had five shots apiece for the Lions, two late chances falling to Glenn, but he sent a header with two minutes to play wide, and a shot just before the final whistle over the crossbar.

The Lions will try to rebound as they open their Sunshine State Conference schedule on Saturday, hosting Rollins at University Field at 7 p.m.
