Hartwick men suffer 1-0 loss; Cobleskill runner sets course record

Staff Report

Hartwick College dropped its second straight Mid-American Conference men’s soccer game as visiting Western Michigan earned a 1-0 victory Saturday at Elmore Field.

Marco Lobo scored with less than five minutes to go in the opening half as the Broncos moved to 2-0 in the MAC.

“We moved the ball and had WMU camped in their own half for long durations,” said Hartwick coach John Scott, whose 4-7-2 team fell to fourth place in the MAC standings with a 2-2 league record. “Chances came and either we didn’t get good enough connections on the ball or a WMU player was there to get an important block.”

Hartwick outshot WMU, 8-3, in the second half but failed to score the equalizer.

Matheau Rogers served a low cross from the left side that Hartwick goalie Mateo Munarriz couldn’t grab, setting up Lobo for a rebound goal. Lobo slid into the ball and scored from 7 yards out with 4:38 left in the opening half.

Munarriz made one save for the Hawks, who finished with edges of 11-9 in shots and 4-3 in corner kicks. Chase Rau stopped two shots for the Broncos.

O-State 2, New Paltz 2

Dylan Williams scored twice Saturday to lead Oneonta State to a SUNY Athletic Conference tie at Red Dragon Field.

Luke Halberg drew a penalty kick in the 87th minute, when he was knocked to the ground inside the box. Williams converted the pk to tie the score at 2, setting up a scoreless overtime.

Williams also scored the first goal in the 30th minute as his wide-open shot from the top of the box followed passes from Hans Purtell and Justin Rivera.

Hobie Ramin tied it in the 34th minute for New Paltz (4-9-3, 2-4-1), which took a 2-1 lead early in the second half on a penalty kick by Bernardo Menendez.
