Truman soccer preps for busy week

The Truman men's soccer team enters a hectic week of action, playing three matches in five days beginning with a home non-conference tilt with No. 5 Lindenwood (Mo.) on Wednesday afternoon at 2:00 pm.

From there, the Bulldogs (7-4-3, 5-4-3) return to GLVC play with a lengthy weekend road trip, traveling to Southern Indiana on Friday (Oct. 25) at 7:30 pm before stopping at Illinois Springfield on Sunday (Oct. 27) for a 2:30 pm showdown.

The three matches this week cover Nos. 15-17 on the 2013 slate, with one regular season match remaining next week.

Last week, Truman went to double overtime twice more during Homecoming weekend, settling for a Friday afternoon scoreless draw with Bellarmine (Ky.) before dashing McKendree's upset plans 3-2 on Sunday.

Matt Langley and Tony Leudecke (along with an own goal by MCK) provided the offense on Sunday, while Drew Garrone posted a 0.93 goals-against average in 193 minutes of work between the pipes with seven saves.

On the season, Truman has a +17 goal differential, having scored 32 times by 11 different players.

Nick Tolmais continues to lead the squad in both goals (6) and points (14), with Nick Franta right behind him with five tallies.

Austin Hayden is also in double-figure points, having totaled 10 behind three goals and four assists.

Duke Cochran has an 88-55-15 (.604) record at the helm and is in his ninth season with the program.
