UNOH 1, Roosevelt 0
LIMA — A Jimmy Morrissey goal early in the second half lifted the University of Northwestern Ohio men’s soccer team to a an opening round NAIA tournament victory at Racer Stadium.
“I think the boys were just really happy to get back out on the field and play a game,” UNOH head coach Tyler Brock said. “It’s been about 10 days and if you watch them practice over the past few days, you knew they were just itching to get back out there against the competition.
“I was very happy with how we started the game and how we stuck to our game plan of possessing and being patient and limiting their opportunties, which we did a great job of because they didn’t have a single shot in the first half.”
Morrissey’s goal came at the 52:04 mark of the second half as he converted a pass from the left side by Karim Jouini. It was the third goal of the season for Morrissey and the first assist for Jouini.
UNOH (12-3-6) plays host to Bethel (Tennessee) at 2 p.m. today.
