The Creighton men’s soccer team played Milwaukee to a 0-0 tie in an exhibition match at the Panthers’ Engelmann Stadium on a windy Sunday afternoon. The Bluejays controlled most of the match outshooting Milwaukee 16-8 including nine shots on goal to just three by the Panthers. The teams decided not to play an overtime session in the preseason match.
Junior Timo Pitter led CU with three shots on goal while sophomore Fabian Herbers added two. UWM’s All-America selection Laurie Bell posted the Panthers’ trio of shots on goal. CU junior goalkeeper Connor Sparrow played all 90 minutes in goal during the exhibition. Sparrow made a tough save on Bell in the 43rd minute as the Panther knocked a header towards the CU net off of a corner kick. Bell also just missed a score earlier in the half as his shot rebounded off the crossbar. Sparrow totaled three saves in the match.
