GRANVILLE, Ohio – The Denison men's soccer team opened their 2017 season at Barclay-Thomsen Field with a 1-0 loss to visiting John Carroll University.

While the Blue Streaks outshot the Big Red 23-7 for the game, Denison continued to stay alive due to their defensive pressure and senior goalkeeper Jack Thomas. Thomas totaled seven saves in 90 minutes of play, while his opposition from John Carroll, junior Liam McIntosh, improved to 1-0 on a three save, clean sheet performance.

With an 8-6 shot differential in the first half and a 0-0 tie at the intermission, John Carroll totaled four shots on goal to begin the second half. Timely saves by Thomas and stout defense by senior Jordan Williams and junior David Jaben left the match tied heading into the final minutes.

Outshooting Denison 15-1 in the second half, the Blue Streaks capitalized in the 81st minute when a deflected shot from sophomore Hayden Parente was finished by junior Brian Lutz to take a 1-0 lead. Over the final eight minutes, the Big Red were kept at bay.

Denison will return to action this Sunday, Sept. 3 when they travel to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania for a meeting with Carnegie Mellon University at 2 p.m.
