Oneonta State gave up a goal inside the first three minutes and failed to recover as host Scranton won a non-conference men’s soccer game, 1-0, on Wednesday.
Nick Paganelli followed Bill McGuiness’ serve over the Red Dragons defense to the top of the 18-yard box, where he touched the ball past oncoming goalie Vincent Pellegrino. The two collided, but Paganelli got just enough on the ball to send it into the net for a 1-0 Scranton lead 2:31 into the game.
