Hartwick men edged by Vermont; O-State cruises

Staff Report

Vermont’s Salvatore Borea scored in the 64th minute Saturday, sending Hartwick College to a 1-0 men’s soccer loss on the road.

The Hawks (1-5-2) finished the first half with an 8-1 advantage in shots, but the Catamounts (6-1-2) responded with a 9-3 edge in the second half.

“We lost to a more committed team,” Hartwick coach John Scott said. “They raised their game in the second half to shut us down and disrupt the rhythm we established in the first half. The goal affected our way in the game and we couldn’t find our way back. I’m disappointed we couldn’t rise above it.”

Borea scored off a long throw-in to the 6-yard box by Luke Salmon, flicking a header past Hartwick goalkeeper Mateo Munarriz (one save).

Hartwick hoss UMass-Lowell at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Elmore Field.

O-State 4, Oswego 0

Zef Saljanin scored twice for Oneonta State, which turned a 1-0 halftime lead into a SUNY Athletic Conference rout of host Oswego on Saturday.

Saljanin opened the scoring in the 38th minute off an assist by Sean Vinberg. His second goal came in the 74th minute without the benefit of an assist.

Luke Halberg and Dylan Williams also scored for the Red Dragons (6-2-2, 2-0), who finished with an 18-1 advantage in shots against the Lakers (0-7-1).

Daniel DeBottis made one save in his first shutout of the season for Oneonta, which hosts Geneseo at 4 p.m. Friday.

PS Berks 2, Cobleskill 1

Steve Seelman scored the tying goal on an 18-yarder in the 64th minute Sunday, but SUNY Cobleskill dropped a home match in the North Eastern Athletic Conference.

Isaiah Danner followed with the go-ahead goal in the 76th minute for Penn State Berks (1-8, 1-3), which more or less secured the victory with 40 seconds left when goalie Darrell Geisinger made a leaping save on a Seelman header to the far post.
