Association Football lost, too :(

While most (and, if the comments section is to believed, all) of you were pining away about Kentucky hand-egg's third consecutive loss (and first sort of moral victory) against Louisville, the men's soccer team was up in Hyde Park, Cincinnati facing the Xavier Musketeers. Los Muskitos have been a bugaboo for the Cats in years past, most recently dispatching the Cats from the NCAA tournament last fall.

Form didn't change a whole lot in this game, unfortunately. Xavier put the ball in the back of the net on a counter-attack in the third minute last night, and Kentucky spent the rest of the game chasing a point. UK Freshman Kaelon Fox scored his first career goal on a set piece in the 42nd minute, but the Cats gave up the game-winning goal in the 70th minute after some less-than-organized defending in the six yard box. Kentucky had its opportunities with seven shots on goal, but, clearly, if the Cats shoot less than thirty times per game, they're not gonna score much. ZING!

WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN, BASIL? Well, winning on the road is hard, Kentucky's very young, especially in defense, and Xavier is a pretty good team. A win was not likely, and a draw would have been successful here. The Cats just turned their focus off for a few moments, and Xavier capitalized. PRACTICE YOUR BUS PARKING, CATS. The loss puts the Cats at 2-2-0
