PITTSBURGH - The University of Pittsburgh men's soccer team dropped its Big East Conference opener 1-0 tonight against the University of Cincinnati at Gettler Stadium.
The Bearcats (5-1, 1-0 Big East) got on board early in the first period with Mark Konitsch recording his second goal of the season with a shot to the bottom right corner that snuck behind goalie Keegan Gunderson. Branden Stelmak and Matt Bahner were both credited with the assist.
Cincinnati held an overwhelming advantage in every offensive category, outshooting Pitt 24-3, including 11-0 in shots on goal.
