Twitter Reaction: Pitt falls short to James Madison in back-and-forth battle in NCAA tournament first round

Pitt men's soccer

There will be no College Cup run for Pitt men’s soccer this year.

The Pitt Panthers came up short in a wild, back-and-forth first round NCAA Tournament match, losing to James Madison, 3-2, at Ambrose Urbanic Field on Thursday night, marking the earliest exit from the National Tournament for Pitt in the Jay Vidovich era.

It was an intense match, that became especially chippy in the second half, as Pitt’s second team All-ACC defender Jackson Gilman was shown a red card in the 71st minute, not too long after Pitt allowed the go-ahead goal.

PSN’s Dominic Campbell kept tabs of the match on the live match blog.  In addition, we have Twitter Reaction to Pitt’s first-round tournament loss.
