The 2013 Creighton Men’s Soccer season ended on Thursday night as Seattle stunned the host Bluejays, 2-1, in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. Miguel Gonzalez scored twice for the visiting Redhawks, who were making their first NCAA Tournament appearance. Creighton’s season ends 9-9-2 mark, ending a bid for a third straight College Cup.
The Jays got on the board in the 15th minute, taking advantage of a Seattle miscue to score the game’s first goal. A Redhawk defender passed the ball back to goalie Jake Feener inside the box, which resulted in a foul. McCrary quickly spotted the loose ball from about 10 yards out and dished it 20 feet left to an open Makh, who beat Feener for his first goal as a Bluejay. It was McCrary’s third assist of the season.
Seattle evened up the game in the 31st minute as Gonzalez found the back of the net for the 14th time of 2013. He gathered a loose ball, turned and fired, beating CU keeper Alex Bolowich for the equalizer. Gonzalez scored the game-winning goal in the 72nd minute, ripping a blast from the top of the box over the outstretched hand of Bolowich.
Creighton outshot Seattle 20-7 on the night, including a 9-3 lead in shots on goal. The Bluejays also had 11 corner kicks to Seattle’s three.
