Men’s Soccer Claims First CACC Title with 1-0 Win Over Post

The Philadelphia University men’s soccer team won its first CACC title Saturday.

The Philadelphia University men’s soccer team won its first Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) title after defeating Post University 1-0 in the championship game of the CACC Tournament on Nov. 9 at the Wilmington University Athletics Complex.

PhilaU men’s soccer—which joined the CACC in 2008—is 12-7-2 overall for the season. It is the second time the Rams have won 12 matches under fourth-year head coach Ptah Myers.

“It was a great finish to the season as the Rams captured their first CACC men’s soccer championship,” Athletics Director Tom Shirley said. “Congratulations on a terrific season.”

At the championship game, sophomore forward Jordan Lynch scored the winning goal at 30:03. Sophomore midfielder Ryan Schroy played a through ball ahead to Lynch, who beat Post keeper Andre Lindsay from 25 yards out for his fourth goal of the year. Philadelphia’s junior keeper Neil Kwiatkowski was kept on his toes in the second half, having to make five stops, and finished the game with six saves.
