CHICAGO - The Xavier University men's soccer team allowed an early goal and could not mount a comeback as the Musketeers lost a 2-0 decision to DePaul on Sunday afternoon in Chicago. With the loss, XU slips to 2-2-0 on the year while the Blue Demons remain perfect at 3-0-0.
Alex Mangan scored his third goal of the season when he hit a header into the back of the net off of a cross by Willy Lara in the 12th minute.
XU was able to keep DePaul off the board until the 57:40 mark when Patrick Hopkins netted an insurance tally after a failed clear attempt by the Xavier defense.
Junior goalkeeper Adam Sokolowski made two saves for the Musketeers, both coming in the second half.
DePaul held a 13-to-6 advantage in shots but only held a 4-to-2 edge in shots on goal.
XU will be back in action when the team travels across town to take on Cincinnati. Game time is set for 7 p.m., marking Xavier's third consecutive showdown against a BIG EAST opponent.
