OMAHA, Neb. (Oct. 20)
-The No. 22 Creighton men's soccer team edged Bradley 1-0 after junior
Bruno Castro converted an early penalty kick in the third minute of the match
at Morrison Stadium Saturday night.
Castro put the Bluejays up early after an infraction assessed
to the Braves, converting a penalty kick at the 2:26 mark of the game. It
marked his second goal of the season. Castro is now 2-of-2 on penalty kick
conversions for his career after netting one against UC Santa Barbara last Nov.
