Seasiders outshoot the Swords, but unable to find back of the net

LAIE, Hawaii – BYU-Hawaii men's soccer dominated statistically, but Chaminade won the scoreboard 1-0 on Saturday afternoon on the BYU-Hawaii campus.

"I was disappointed with our performance today," BYU head coach Mark Davis said. "We outshot [Chaminade], out possessed them, hit the crossbar but credit them for making the big saves."

The Seasiders finished with 11 shots with four on goal. Jace Green led the way on offense breaking free several times to get a game-high three shots on goal.

"I take credit for and apologize to all the alumni for the poor performance, but I promise them and my current players that it will never happen again," Davis said. "We are going to work our hardest on get through this and get back on the right track.

Chaminade broke through in the 37th minute with a goal by Austin Bush on a good 2-on-2 break into the box and put the ball into the netting on the back post.

BYU-Hawaii stepped up the pressure early in the second half with Green breaking free to get off a good shot in the 58th minute, but the keeper was able to make the save. After a red card sent the Silverswords' Cameron Heen off the field, Green broke free for a 1-on-1 with the goalie, but it was punched high and came off the crossbar.

The Seasiders will head to California to participate in the  Lumberjack Classic beginning with a match against Chico State Sept. 18 at 11 a.m. PST in Arcata, Calif.
