Scots' historic run ends in NCAA First Round

Maryville College's historic season ended on Saturday afternoon in Lynchburg, Va., as the Scots suffered only their third loss of the season in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

The Scots – the USA South Regular Season and Tournament Champions – were defeated in the opening round by the No. 5 Kenyon Lords, 3-0.

Saturday marked only Maryville's fourth trip to the dance, and it was their first since 2005.

Kenyon advance to play host Lynchburg College, who defeated John Carroll University, 4-2 earlier today.

Kenyon's Sam Clougher kept Maryville off the board on the afternoon, as he saw 14 Maryville shots. He turned away all five of MC's shots on goal.

Maryville's season ends as the winningest season in school history with a record of 18-3-0. No other team in school history has won 18 games, as the 1988 squad came the closest with 16. Maryville held a 9-1 record in the USA South, as Kenyon ended Maryville's record 14-game win streak.

Kenyon scored their first goal during the 44th minute of action. Philippe Stengel took the cross from Greg McNeer, as he netted it past keeper Ryan Jorgensen in the lower left.

The Lords would add their second goal in the 59th minute from Brice Koval, before KC David Anderson collected a deflection from Jorgensen and scored in the 89th minute.

Tim Baker and Caleb Lucas each had three shots, while Lucas led Maryville with two shots on goal. Johnny Rakhmonberdiev had two shots with one on goal.

Kenyon saw four players record two shots, as all three of the squad's goals came from substitutes during the contest.

Jorgensen tallied three saves, including one huge acrobatic move during the final minutes, during the NCAA Tournament contest.
