Rams fall to Terriers


Carbondale used an opening-minute score to fuel a 4-0 victory Thursday.

When you look at the score 4-0, and you watch the game that we watched it didn't look like it was a 4-0 game,” Mt. Vernon coach Jim Duncan said.

Mt. Vernon's Joseph McDanel was called for a trip in the penalty area just 52 second into the game. Carbondale's Noah Kippenbrock stepped to the penalty spot and knocked a shot past Mt. Vernon goalie J.J. Wiegel.

It's just an unfortunate trip,” Duncan said. “Joseph back there really plays tough defense and things like that happen.”

The next two Carbondale goals came on rebounds from Wiegel. Fernando Toran knocked both past Wiegel after the goalie had defended the initial strike.

I'm not going to criticize any keeper that plays back there,” Duncan said. “It's their call. We train them to make judgement calls.”

The Terriers final tally came midway through the second half. Brock Musoiu volleyed a shot into the net.

Mt. Vernon wasn't without its own chances on offense. About 10 minutes into the game, Wiegel ripped a long punt down to Mac Jones. The Rams striker outran the Terriers defense as the ball took a high bounce toward goal. Jones out jumped the Carbondale keeper, but his header went wide of goal.

We had some opportunities,” Duncan said. “We had some chances. It just didn't go our way though.”

McDanel also had a chance late in the second half. Jones again challenged the Carbondale goalie in the air. This time the ball fell to McDanel near the top of the penalty area. He tried to chip the ball into the goal, but his shot missed.

The Rams offense generated six shots on goal in the game.

Wiegel ended the game with five saves.

Mt. Vernon is 8-6-1 this season and hosts Anna-Jonesboro on Monday.
