ALBION, Mich. – Trine University spoiled the Albion College men's soccer team's home debut Saturday afternoon by handing the Britons a 2-1 setback.
It is the first loss of the season for the Britons, who fell to 4-1-1 overall and 1-1 against Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association rivals.
The Albion fans were still buzzing when Trine was awarded a penalty kick 14 seconds after the Smit goal. Albion goalkeeper Maximilian Loria got a hand on the penalty kick by Tristen Ortiz, but the shot found the back of the net for the winning score.
Albion will play at home again Tuesday when it challenges Hope College. Kickoff is set for 7 o'clock at the Davis Athletic Complex.
