(ATLANTA, Ga.) - The Carnegie Mellon University men's soccer team played another tight University Athletic Association (UAA) contest when they met 15th-ranked Emory University on the road on Sunday afternoon. The Eagles were able to defend their home field and won a 1-0 game to move the Tartans' record to 6-4-3 and 0-3-1 while they advanced to 7-1-4 and 2-0-2.

Both teams had just one shot on goal in the first half with the Eagles' shot coming in the second minute off a header by Charlie Scruton that was saved by senior keeper Ethan Kalis (Riverwoods, Ill. / Adlai E. Stevenson) and the Tartans' shot coming in the 31st minute when freshman Kuba Yiadom's (Bowie, Md. / Charles Herbert Flowers) shot was saved by Cole Gallagher.

The Eagles took the lead eight minutes into the second half when Trey Rielly served the ball over the back line to Scruton for a header from 15 yards out over the arms of Kalis. The Tartans felt Scruton was offsides on the service but it wasn't flagged by the linesman.

Yiadom had a chance to equalize a minute later but his shot was saved by Jack Hudson who entered at the start of the second half.

In the 81st minute, senior Jason Edmunds (Libertyville, Ill. / Libertyville) put a ball into the box that was gobbled up by Hudson while freshman Banke Yiadom (Bowie, Md. / Charles Herbert Flowers) had an attempt go wide in the 85th minute.

The Tartans will return home for the remaining three games on the schedule and face Washington University in St. Louis on Friday, October 29 at 7:30 p.m.
