MIAMI SHORES, Fla. (October 4, 2014) -

The Tars found themselves behind two goals at the half and never fully recovered on Saturday afternoon, falling to Barry by a final score of 3-1.

The loss drops the Tars to 5-4 on the year, 1-2 in the SSC, while the Buccaneers improve to 4-3-1 overall and 1-1 in the conference.

Barry would jump out to the one goal lead on Kay's second goal of the year in the 32nd minute and then would push the lead to 2-0 10 minutes later on Gerke's third.

Just after the half, the game would be halted due to inclement weather.
