Buffs lose close shave with Pioneers

The last 16 minutes of the Millgan and Tusculum matchup proved to be the most intense as the crowd got louder and the shots on goal got more frequent Wednesday night at Anglin Field.

Milligan (2-3-2, 0-2 Appalachian Athletic Conference) would drop the match 2-1 with the majority of game play on the Buffaloes side of the field as Tusculum took 11 shots during the game. However, at the 16-minute mark of the second half, with the Buffs down 2-0, Millgan’s Bruce Olivier, off an assist by Lewis Grant, head butted the Buffaloes’ only goal into the back of the net, causing a of boost of energy to swell in the team and the crowd.
