WMU Men's Soccer

Western Michigan men’s soccer was shut out 1-0 in its matchup against Kentucky Sunday.

The first half saw both defenses shine, as neither team scored in the half, and only two shots were on goal, both by the Wildcats.

The second half saw more of the same with neither offense having any success scoring the first goal. WMU’s offense was very lackluster in the entire game, only having three shots on goal the entire game. Western Michigan’s defense finally gave in as Kentucky scored the lone goal in the game with a great shot by Brock Lindow in the 73rd minute to secure the victory for the Wildcats.

Kentucky dominated in the shot column for the game even after only scoring one goal in the victory. The Wildcats out shot the Broncos 15-7 overall and 5-3 in shots on goal. The lack of offense for the Broncos cost them the victory against a good non-conference opponent.

Western Michigan will be back home on Friday for its Alumni Weekend, facing off with Sacramento State at 5 p.m.
