Hartwick men still seeking first win


---- —

Six games into his tenure as Hartwick College's Division I men's soccer coach and John Scott is still in search of his first victory.

The Hawks lost, 1-0, to visiting University at Albany in a non-conference game Saturday to drop to 0-5-1. Scott took over this season for Ian McIntyre, who now coaches at Syracuse.

Albany (4-2) received a goal Bo Jelovac in the 33rd minute.

Christoffer Nisser started the play by sending a pass into the left side of the penalty area from midfield. Jelovac fought through a couple Hawk backs and found himself 1-on-1 with keeper Jake Wright and shot low to the far post.

Hartwick held an 18-13 edge in shots. It marks the fourth straight game the Hawks have outshot their opposition. Hartwick had its best opportunity 4:34 into play. A flighted ball into the box was headed on goal by forward Dan Summers, but Albany keeper Adrian Foncette got his fingertip on the shot pushing it over the crossbar.

The Great Danes had a great opportunity in the 12th minute as a Hartwick foul in the box awarded them a penalty kick. Milos Jankovic hit a low shot to his left, but Wright made a diving save.

In the second half, Hartwick took 13 shots _ five more than the Great Danes.

Senior midfielder Steven Amaya had a hard, low shot from inside the box that Foncette saved in the early going and Summers also was denied by Foncette later in the half. Senior Michael Cunningham had the last good chance for the Hawks in the final three minutes of regulation, but his glancing header off of a cross went just wide.

Foncette finished with six saves. Wright made five stops for the Hawks, who held a 7-0-1 record against Albany before Saturday.

The Hawks return to Elmore Field on Wednesday against the Marist Red Foxes.
