Bucher Scores Third Goal of the Season as Men's Soccer Falls, 2-1, at URI
Oct. 12, 2007
The loss was XU's first in a conference opener since 2004.
Bucher gave XU the lead at the 39:53 mark. He took a feed from sophomore Kennedy Nakwa and took advantage of URI goalkeeper Chris Pennock's poor position and found the back of the net, giving Xavier a 1-0 edge heading into the break.
The assist was Nakwa's second of the year.
The lead was short lived though as Lukasz Tumicz scored the equalizer at 59:45. The goal was Tumicz's sixth goal of the season and came when her struck a shot from outside the right-hand side of the box into the upper left-hand corner past a diving Adam Sokolowski.
Xavier would hold URI at bay until Geoffrey Cameron scored the game-winner at 80:13. He took a feed from Danleigh Borman and hit a header over Sokolowski.
Sokolowski made a career-high nine saves on the night while Pennock allowed a goal on the only shot on goal he was challenged with. URI held a 27-to-8 advantage in shots.
