Playing their second game in four days, the University of Portland men’s soccer players already felt “dead” and their legs were “gone” before they stepped onto the pitch Monday evening. The opening minutes of the Pilots’ match against West Virginia showed it.
The Mountaineers quickly gained possession and attacked, keeping the ball on the Portland side of the field for most of the first three minutes. They quickly found an opening for an early first shot when Ryan Crooks found Luke McCormick in the left side of the box, and McCormick booted a ball past keeper George Tasouris to give West Virginia a 1-0 lead less than four minutes into the match.
