Sophomore Lucas Geib scored his fourth goal of the season but the Lake Forest College men's soccer team was edged out 2-1 at St. Norbert College on Sunday.

Geib took a pass from senior Elyas Ingram and tied the score at one at the 37:18 mark. It was the fourth assist of the year for Ingram and the 25th of his career, tying him with former teammate Dylan Hartman (2012-15) for fourth place in program history.

The Green Knights eventually regained the lead in the 58th minute and held on for the victory.

The home team had a 9-6 advantage in shots in the first half and Lake Forest out-shot the home team 10-9 during the final 45 minutes. The Foresters had a 4-3 edge in corner kick opportunities and each team's goalie made five saves.

The loss left Lake Forest with a 7-5-1 overall record and a 4-0-1 mark in Midwest Conference play. St. Norbert improved to 10-3-1 overall and remained perfect in the league at 5-0-0.

The Foresters will host a pair of conference games next weekend, taking on Knox College on Saturday and Monmouth College on Sunday. Both contests are scheduled to begin at 3:30 p.m.
