The Bluffton College men's soccer team closed out their 1999 season last week with losses on the road to finish the season with a 7-10 overall record.

Last Tuesday the Beavers traveled to Taylor-Ft. Wayne and held a 3-1 lead into the second half before falling to a furious home team comeback 4-3. Freshman Craig Hughes scored two goals in the match, the first off an assist by freshman Marshall Amor. Senior Jon Corbin connected for the other BC goal off an assist from sophomore Mark Stutzman.

On Saturday Bluffton traveled to Hanover College and dropped a 4-1 decision to the Panthers. Freshman David Luttrell scored the BC goal off an assist from Mark Stutzman.

The seven wins this season are the most in the last five seasons for the BC men's team, and their 7-10 record is the best finish since Head Coach Randy Keeler's 1994 squad finished 8-10. Mark Stutzman led BC in scoring this season with four goals and five assists for 13 points, while Hughes added nine points (three goals) and Corbin scored four goals for eight points. Senior goalkeeper Rod Stutzman collected 182 saves this season.

Final statistics will be announced at a later date.
