The Eutectic men’s soccer team made history on Saturday, Aug. 23, playing its inaugural game in front of a large supportive home crowd against sports powerhouse Central Methodist University. The Euts lost 4-1 to the Eagles at the Saint Louis University High School soccer stadium, the Eutectics’ home turf.

The Eagles offense immediately put pressure on the Eutectics, keeping the ball near the Euts’ goal for much of the game. CMU had 14 shots in the first period. First-year Eutectic goalie Aaron Hohenstein made seven saves, but the Eagles were able to put three in the net, leaving the Euts down 3-0 at the half.

CMU continued to pepper Hohenstein with shots in the second period, who saved eight, allowing only one through. The Euts were down 4-0 with 22-minutes left in the game, when third-year forward TJ Jamieson passed to second-year forward Adis Sahbaz, who headed the ball past the CMU goalie for the first Eutectic goal in STLCOP history. The Eagles went on the attack after giving up the goal, but would score no more before the game’s end.

In addition to his goal, Sahbaz, along with third-year Senir Turan and second-year Tim Wilhelm each had a shot on goal. Hohenstein racked up 14 saves during the game.

The Eutectics will next play on Thursday, Sept. 4, when they host Benedictine University-Springfield at 9 p.m. at the SLUH soccer stadium.
