COLUMBIA, Ky. – The No. 21 ranked Union College men's soccer team came up on the short end a of a 2-1 ledger as host and No. 14 Lindsey Wilson (Ky.) won the NAIA Top 25 showdown on Saturday.

The loss drops the Bulldogs to 2-2-1, while the Blue Raiders improve to 3-0 on the season. 

The first half was quiet on both sides as neither team scored a goal and each time shot only three times with one save for Union and two saves for Lindsey Wilson.

The second half was tied with seven shots a piece, but in the 48th min, the Blue Raiders scored their first goal of the night. At the 79:39 mark, Mutaya Mwape scored Lindsey Wilson's second goal of the night to seemingly seal Union's fate.

The Bulldogs battled back as George Doyle (FR/Huddersfield, England) scored in the 80th minute off an assist by Duarte Rebelo (SO/Lisbon, Portugal), but it was not enough as the Blue Raiders defeated the Bulldogs 2-1.

Though the teams were neck and neck in shots, Blue Raiders came up with five saves to the Bulldogs' two.
