Will Broomfield scored late in the second half Friday, helping Hartwick College to a 1-1 men’s soccer tie at non-conference rival Fairfield University in the season opener for both Division I programs.
Broomfield redirected a free kick to the middle of the box from David Styles with a header that sneaked in just under the crossbar to tie the score at 1 with a little more than 11 minutes remaining in regulation. The play led to two scoreless overtime periods, when the Hawks outshot the Stags, 4-2.
Fairfield’s Jake Zuniga opened the scoring with 1:26 left in the first half. His corner kick curled toward the goal and went in after Hartwick goalie Mateo Munarriz managed to get a hand on the ball.
Munarriz, who made a diving save earlier in the game, finished with five saves. Fairfield goalie Joe Martin made three saves in his college debut.
The Hawks finished with a 12-11 edge in shots. Fairfield held a 9-3 advantage in corner kicks.
Hartwick travels to 20th-ranked Syracuse University for a non-conference game at 7 p.m. Monday. The Orange are coached by Hartwick graduate and former Hawks head coach Ian McIntyre.
Syracuse opened its season Friday with a 4-0 rout of host Colgate.
O-State 2, Stockton 1
Amanda Regensburger scored 22 seconds into the season opener for Oneonta State, which won a non-conference road game thanks to two first-half goals.
Regensburger one-timed a cross from Kayla Ceschini past Stockton goalie Sarah Hinkle for the early lead. Hinkle gave up a second goal in the 24th minute, when Karly DeSimone charged down the right side for an unassisted score.
Marissa Bruno pulled Stockton to 2-1 with a penalty-kick goal against Kelley Murphy 68:08 into the match. Bruno’s goal came eight seconds after O-State’s Erica Berry was hit with a red card, setting up a pk for Stockton.
