Men's Soccer shuts out LaGrange, 6-0

BIRMINGHAM, Ala.—With a 6-0 shutout of LaGrange, the Birmingham-Southern men's soccer team remained undefeated Sunday afternoon, moving to 6-0 on the season.

Senior Tobias Winter recorded two goals and an assist in the match, scoring BSC's first and last goals for his third game-winner of the season. Freshman Spencer Nichols also had two goals, senior Brooks Busby had a goal and an assist, and freshman Josh Wild had a goal—the first of his collegiate career. Senior Kristjan Bryde also had two assists, and junior Johannes Loeffler had one.

BSC scored three times in both periods, out-shooting LaGrange 35-4 (14-2 on-goal), led by Nichols and Bryde with six shots apiece.

Junior Jonas Heidrich started in goal for BSC and played almost 65 minutes, making one save and getting the win to move to 6-0. Freshman Louis Fagelson came in for the final 25 minutes, recording one save and sharing the shutout with Heidrich. LaGrange's goalies combined for eight saves.

BSC had four corner kicks while LaGrange had none, and BSC was also whistled for 10 offsides to LaGrange's one.

Over six games now—three of those shutouts—BSC has out-scored its opponents 22-5, and hasn't given up more than one goal in a game since the opener against Methodist on August 30.

The Panthers are on the road for their next four games, facing Covenant College on Wednesday in Lookout Mountain, Ga., and No. 15 Emory on Sept. 25 in Atlanta. BSC will then travel to Indiana for games against Franklin College, Sept. 28, and Hanover College, Sept. 29. The Panthers are back at home to open Southern Athletic Association play on Saturday, Oct. 5, hosting Rhodes at 2 p.m. at BSC Soccer Park.
