The Lock Haven University Men’s soccer team (7-9-1, 6-4 PSAC) took a tough loss to Slippery Rock University (10-6, 6-4 PSAC) on Saturday, Oct. 24, 2015. Slippery Rock cruised to a 5-0 victory despite LHU leading the game in shot attempts.

Slippery Rock’s Kenton Keeslar opened the scoring with a goal just over eight minutes into the game. Peter Boylan added a second goal 22 minutes into the first half to give SRU a 2-0 lead heading into halftime.

Slippery Rock would go on to add three more goals in the second half to run away with the win. Lock Haven took 14 shots in the game, but failed to get one past the SRU goalkeeper.

LHU honored its seniors before the game and, despite the loss, they secured their place in the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) playoffs.

Prior to the start season, the Bald Eagles were picked to finish No. 10 in the PSAC Preseason Coaches Poll. As it currently stands before their Halloween matchup at California (Pa.), they are fifth in the conference.

The PSAC playoff berth is their first since 2011 when they fell to Bloomsburg on penalty kicks, 7-6.
