HARRISONBURG, Va. - Two quick goals forced the Gallaudet University men's soccer team to play from behind on the road Sunday afternoon as the Bison were held scoreless against Eastern Mennonite University. The Royals scored in the second and ninth minutes and added a third goal before the half en route to a 4-0 victory.

Gallaudet (1-2-1) recorded seven shots in the game and took four shots in the second half but couldn't get a shot past the EMU goalie tandem of Andrew Areledge (1-0) and Andrew Foltz, who both made two saves each. 

EMU held a 5-1 edge in corner kicks and 13-7 advantage in shots. The Royals added a fourth goal in the 76th minute as four different players recorded a goal for the hosts.

GU returns home to begin conference play next weekend at Hotchkiss Field. The Bison will make their home opener on Saturday, Sept. 17, at 3:30 p.m. against SUNY Morrisville.
