Freshman Dylan Williams scored in the 38th minute Friday to lead Oneonta State to a 1-0 SUNY Athletic Conference men’s soccer victory at Potsdam.
Williams earned his second goal of the season for the defending SUNYAC champions after rebounding a shot by senior Jeff Christian. Williams beat Potsdam goalie Joseph Glackin (10 saves) on the shot, which led to Oneonta’s third straight win.
