Men's soccer falls at Emory, 7-0

ATLANTA, Ga. -- Facing their third nationally-ranked conference opponent in as many games, the Brandeis University men's soccer team fell at Emory University, 7-0, in University Athletic Association (UAA) action today.

Brandeis (6-6-1, 0-3-1 UAA) managed just six shots, three of which were on goal, compared to Emory's 16. The Eagles (12-1, 3-1 UAA) opened the scoring in the sixth minute on a goal by Patrick Carver and never looked back. Senior Karl Dix picked up an assist on the goal as part of a six-point day. Dix had two goals 10 minutes apart in the second half, and also assisted EU's second goal. Reserve forward Alex Grigalunas also had two goals for the hosts, the No. 17 team in the nation.

Brandeis senior Matt Kaplan (Melville, N.Y.) made one save in 77 minutes of play.
