A Point Park University soccer player was knocked unconscious in the closing seconds of Thursday's Kentucky Intercollegiate Athletic Conference semifinal game against Talledega College at Cupples Stadium in the South Side, witnesses said.

Marius Seager, a freshman from Paris, had regained consciousness before Pittsburgh paramedics transported him to UPMC Mercy, Uptown, witnesses said.

“Marius Seager is being kept in the hospital overnight for monitoring,” said Kevin Taylor, Point Park's director of athletic communications. “He is conscious and has a concussion.”

City police were called shortly before 5 p.m. for a report of a fight at the stadium. However, the witnesses said the player was felled by an elbow to the head by an opposing player and that there was no fight.

Taylor said it was a “very heated game” with “some jawing back and forth....(The) teams were separated before any fight could take place.”

Point Park defeated the team from Alabama, 4-1, and advances to the conference finals.
