TEXARKANA, Tex. – The LSU Shreveport Pilots men's soccer team recorded another shutout, their second in as many games, as they crushed the Williams Baptist Eagles 6-0 at the soccer field on the campus of Texas A&M University-Texarkana. The game was moved to the neutral site for the threat of Tropical Storm Harvey.

 

NOTES
The Pilots improve to 2-0 on the season while Williams Baptist drops their first game of the season. LSUS has outscored their opponents 12-0 in the first two games of the season.

 

FROM COACH PHILLIP BOHN
"Our guys were impressive going forward at times. They scored some truly entertaining goals as a team but we still have a lot to work on moving forward as evidenced by a 20 minute lull in the second half but we are young and just scratching the surface. Danny had a fantastic day scoring and dishing our assists. He was a handful and really added bite to our attack."

 

STANDOUT PERFORMERS
Daniel Meza (JR/Fontana, California) stole the show for the Pilots having an incredible game with two goals and three assists as he took a total of three shots.

David Martinez (SR/Puerto Ordaz, Venezuela) took the most shots with four while putting three on-goal with one goal scored.

Murray Cockburn (JR/Edinburgh, Scotland) made his presence felt as well with one of his two shots on goal finding the back of the net.

Alvaro Torres (JR/Cali, Colombia) made some crisp passes in the contest and was credited with an assists and had one shot on goal.

Robbie Bruce (FR/Cullen, Scotland) came in off the bench and helped the Pilots kill the lull, that Coach Bohn referred to earlier, getting the game high of two assists and he also had two shots in the game.

Niall Cheshire (FR/Eastbourne, England) also provided the Pilots a boost off the bench as he scored two goals on the only two shots that he took.

Yoran Van Houdt (FR/Mol, Belguim) recorded his second shutout of the season saving four shots during his 90 minutes.
