GREENSBORO, N.C. — The Bowling Green State University men's soccer season comes to an end in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament, falling to Monmouth 2-1.

In the first half, the Falcons opened the scoring and took a 1-0 lead with a goal from Northview grad Nathan Masters in the 43rd minute. 

Monmouth would answer with a goal in the 57th minute to tie it up at one apiece, and with eight minutes remaining the Hawks would score what would prove to be the game-winner to make it 2-1.

The Falcons had several close chances in the final minute, but Bowling Green's season ends in the NCAA Tournament. 

This was the first time BGSU men's soccer had been in the tournament since 1997.
