FULTON, Mo. - Westminster men's soccer scored twice, but eventually fell to Wisconsin-Whitewater 5-2.
The Blue Jays fall to 1-6 on the year.
"The intensity level tonight was very good," said Westminster Head Coach Adam Galla. "We scored two really nice goals that were well created but gave up a couple of goals that we should have done a better job with.

Brent Lampen added a goal 10 minutes later to give Westminster new life, but the Warhawks scored twice more in the final 20 minutes to play to take a commanding 5-2 lead over the Blue Jays.
