IPFW soccer loses to Xavier

Last season was a forgettable one for the IPFW men’s soccer team – it went 1-15-1 – but the Mastodons didn’t look like a one-win team Saturday against Xavier in the Shindigz National Soccer Festival.

Even though the Mastodons lost the exhibition match 1-0, they had some excellent scoring chances, the best coming in the 83rd minute when Britt Watts, a former Canterbury player, dribbled around the defense and fired a low shot that goalkeeper Vince Shaw punched just outside the right goalpost.

“We had a rough year with injuries,” IPFW coach Mike Harper said. “And we actually have the injury bug again this year. We have one guy who might be out for the year (in Oscar Uyamadu), a couple other injuries, but I think we’ll get through those and we’re looking for some other guys to step up.”

The game was held at Carroll because the fields at the Fort Wayne Sport Club were too drenched with water to handle play.
