Western Michigan Men's Soccer Falls at Detroit, 2-0
It was the third consecutive non-conference win for Detroit (3-6-4), which picked up its first home win of the season. With the loss, Western Michigan fell to 4-7-0 on the season. The Broncos will look to rebound Saturday, traveling to Hartwick for a Mid-American Conference matchup at 3 p.m.
“Today we were boys playing against men, and it was extremely disappointing because we knew how Detroit was going to play and simply could not handle it,” said WMU head coach Chad Wiseman.
“I give a lot of credit to Detroit and its players, they really believe in their system and do it for 90 minutes. They were bigger, stronger, and played with more passion and desire to win the match. We will be better on Saturday, we have no choice but to be.”
Bedell scored his first goal for UDM in the 28th minute with a bending shot to the upper left corner off a cross by Ybarra from the left. Ybarra found Bedell with another cross in the 52nd minute to give UDM a 2-0 lead.
Western Michigan held a 5-3 advantage in shots and a 5-1 advantage in corner opportunities at halftime.
