BLUFFTON, Ohio -The Bluffton University men's soccer team (5-10, 1-3 HCAC) dropped
a defensive struggle 2-0 to the Spartans of Manchester (5-8-2, 3-1 HCAC) on October
Defense ruled the day as the Spartans netted one goal in each half to come away with
the 2-0 victory over the Beavers in Heartland conference action at Manchester. Junior
goalkeeper Ryan Thomas (Jamestown/Greenview) deflected five Spartan shots to keep Bluffton close, but the
Beavers could not find the net against an improving Manchester squad.
