87th-minute goal dooms FDU men, 1-0
PEORIA, Ill. – The Fairleigh Dickinson men fell to Bradley, 1-0, on a late goal Friday night.
The Knights (1-2) and Braves (1-1-1) were even for 87 minutes before Jason Lesch passed to Richard Olson for the game's only goal.
The match was part of The Hotels at Grand Prairie Classic. The tournament also features #16 Utah Valley and Evansville.
Olson fielded a diagonal pass as he moved toward the right edge of the goal box. Olson shot low - against his momentum - slipping the ball by goalkeeper Julian Murillo Toro into the left side of the goal.
Toro was credited with three saves.
Bradley held a 10-3 advantage in shots and a 6-4 edge in penalty kicks.
The Knights will return to action on Sunday at 1 p.m. ET against Evansville.
