---- — Staff Report

Ian McIntyre appears to be enjoying life at Syracuse University.

Hartwick graduate and former Hawks coach McIntyre guided his 20th-ranked Orange squad to a 2-0 non-conference victory over visiting Hartwick College on Monday night.

McIntyre earned All-America honors while playing for the Hawks in the mid-1990s. He then coached Oneonta State from 1998-2002 before moving across the street to coach Hartwick from 2003-09.

He’s been at Syracuse since. Following two- and three-win seasons in first two seasons at SU, McIntyre steered his program to a 14-6-1 record in 2012 that included two NCAA Division I Tournament victories.

On Monday night, Grant Chong and Nick Perea scored 9 minutes, 9 seconds apart in the second half as the Orange improved to 2-0. Hartwick fell to 0-1-1 on the season.

The Hawks generated a few chances in the early going. Tim Crawford shot wide in the 8th minute and David Styles had a shot blocked by Orange defender two minutes later.

Syracuse had the final four shots of the half, but none of them made it to Hartwick goalkeeper Mateo Munarriz.

The Orange pressured early in the second half. After two shots from Chong in the first 21/2 minutes, he scored in the 50th minute on a shot from the left side of the box. It marked the first shot on goal by either team. Alex Halis earned an assist on the play.

Perea scored unassisted in the 60th minute.

Will Broomfield, who scored in Hartwick’s 1-1 tie against Fairfield on Friday, was named one of Hartwick’s Hawks of the Week on Monday.

Hartwick will host the Mayor’s Cup this coming weekend at Elmore Field. The Hawks play Robert Morris at 5 p.m. Friday and 22nd-ranked Cornell University at 3 p.m. Sunday.

O-State 1, Ithaca 0

Dylan Williams’ overtime goal lifted visiting Oneonta State to a non-conference victory in its season opener Saturday.

The game was scheduled for Saturday, but inclement weather pushed it back a day.

Sicari nearly scored in overtime after penetrating into the penalty box, but her shot went high in the first overtime. Hartwick goalie Annie Millar kept it tied in the second overtime, punching a long shot by Angela Heydt over the goal.

Hartwick (0-0-1) held advantages of 11-10 in shots and 5-3 in corner kicks.

O-State tied the score at 1 on Karly DeSimone’s goal in the 75th minute. DeSimone earned a penalty kick after being tackled in the box. Her initial shot was deflected by goalie KC Nunez and hit off the post, but DeSimone converted the rebound.

The Red Dragons outshot Kean, 14-12, and forced Nunez to make eight saves.
