The shots kept coming...Ben Petru shot in the 3rd minute, cutting behind a defender but unlucky. Luke Leopard shot in minute 22, breaking down the defense but again, just missed. Princeton gets a free kick because of foul outside the box but beautifully blocked by Turpin's keeper Nathan Burkhart. Finally, corner kick by Ben Petru is rebounded but shot barely wide by Ted Stegmeier to end the first half. 
Great cross from Ben Petru to Luke Leopard in the 14th minute of the 2nd half but Princeton defense was there. Another great save and punt by Nathan Burkhart in the 33rd minute. Breakaway potential turned into a corner for Turpin. Another spot-on corner by Ben Petru with Matthew Carpenter taking the header bravely. Just a little too much power and the ball clears the cross bar. Great rally in the end but Princeton holds on to win 0-1. Next game is Thursday Sept. 3rd at 5:00pm against Loveland.
