CINCINNATI, Ohio - The Bluffton University men's soccer team struggled to find the net as Cincinnati Christian improved to 3-3 on the season with a 4-1 victory on Tuesday, Sept. 14, 2010. The Beavers slipped to 2-2 on the year after a pair of wins to start the season.
CCU came out firing, putting up 10 shots in the first period while taking a 2-1 lead at the break. Andrew Wilburn and Caleb Chesnut both posted tallies for the Eagles before a Nolan Phelps (Monroe/Lemon-Monroe) penalty kick midway through the period pulled the visitors within one.
