The Marietta Pioneers’ offensive woes continued Saturday as they were shut out in their 1-0 loss against the Heidelberg Student Princes.
The game’s lone goal in the 52nd minute when Heidelberg midfielder Christopher Koczak beat a defender and found the back of the net after Hamid Shariff set him up.
The Student Princes were aggressive all game as they totaled 17 shots Saturday, including six shots on goal. The Pioneers, however, struggled mightily as they mustered three shots the entire game.
Saturday’s loss marked the third straight loss for Marietta. In the losing streak, the Pioneers have failed to score more than one goal in all three games. In fact, offensive struggles have plagued Marietta all season. In their seven losses, the Pioneers have scored a total of six goals.
Marietta (3-7, 0-1) will look to get its offense rolling and snap the losing streak Wednesday when it takes on the Mount Union Raiders (5-6, 0-1) at home. Heidelberg (7-2, 1-0) faces Wilmington College (4-7-1, 1-0) Wednesday.
