The Saint Mary men's soccer team continued the tough start to their KCAC schedule as they faced off against Ottawa on Saturday for Homecoming at Charles J. Berkel Memorial Stadium. The Spires played their fourth KCAC game, all four opponents are ranked in the top six of the KCAC Standings.

Trailing 1-0 in the second half, the Spires could not get any momentum going. The Spires would get off three shots each half, but could not find the back of the net. Ottawa would add three second half goals to take the game 4-0.

Enrique Gonzales made seven saves in in the loss. He played all 90 minutes in goal. Jesus Rangel led the Spires in shots with two. Jordan Salb had the lone shot on goal for Saint Mary. The Spires held Ottawa to just four shots in the first half, but the Braves would get off 10 shots in the second half in the win.
