CONWAY, Ark. (HU) – In the first half of the Harding men's soccer game against Hendrix on Tuesday, the Bisons shot 15 times without scoring. On their first shot of the second half, they got it right.
Harding freshman Cameron Rose collected a loose ball in the Hendrix box and scored a 54th-minute goal to give the Bisons a 1-0 victory.
Rose, a native of Sachse, Texas, had one of Harding's best chances to score in the first half, but Hendrix goalkeeper Adam Legg saved Rose's penalty kick attempt in the 29th minute.
Rose's goal came on one of only three Harding shots in the second half and made him the seventh different Bison to score one of the Bisons' eight goals this season.
With the victory, Harding improved to 2-8-0 on the season, with both wins coming on the road. The Bisons also won 1-0 at Delta State on Sept. 26. Harding did not win a road game in 2009.
Hendrix (4-7-0) managed just four shots in the first half, but fired 10 in the second half. Harding goalkeeper Will Reno was equal to the challenge, making six saves in his second shutout this season.
Tuesday's game was the first meeting between Harding and Hendrix, an NCAA Division III school located just 51 miles from Searcy.
