TIFFIN, Ohio – Ohio Dominican's men's soccer team dropped a Great Midwest Athletic Conference contest at Tiffin by a final score of 4-1 Thursday afternoon at the Paradiso Athletic Complex.

In the first 45 minutes, defense was the story for both teams. Sophomore goalkeeper Aiden Genette (Macomb, Mich.) had six saves through the first 43 minutes before conceding a Dragon goal just before the half where the hosts would take a 1-0 lead into the half.

In that first half, the Panthers (2-6-1, 1-3-1) had three total shots with two on goal from River Allbaugh (Pickerington, Ohio) and Amadou Mamadou (Columbus, Ohio).

Tiffin (7-1-2, 5-1-1) would strike early in the second half scoring in the first 30 seconds to double their lead at 2-0. The hosts would add two more goals in the 64th and 81st minutes to advance their lead to 4-0.

Freshman forward Alex Larzelere (Hilliard, Ohio) was able to get the Panthers on the board late in the 87th minute for his second of the year on Allbaugh's fourth assist of the season.  

Freshman Khalif Hassan (Columbus, Ohio) led the Panthers offensively recording two shots on goal on the afternoon. Genette finished with seven saves in all 90 minutes between the posts.

ODU returns to the pitch once again traveling to Findlay on Saturday, October 12 with kickoff set for 1 p.m
