Colgate 2, Hartwick 1
Jason Keefe scored with 13 minutes left, but Hartwick dropped a non-conference game on the road.
The Raiders (3-4-4) led by two goals before Keefe’s goal.
The Hawks (3-4-2) earned a corner in the final minutes but could not produce the tying goal. Russell Oost-Lievense, who assisted Keefe’s score, had the final chance for the Hawks but his long-range effort was handled by Raider keeper Liam Stapleton.
Neither side had many chances in the first half.
But Colgate converted on its best chance of the half nearly 20 minutes in. On the right flank, Shane Conlin got a step on a Hartwick defender and he carried the ball deep into Hawk territory. His cross found leading scorer Mike Reidy just inside 18 yards and he volleyed it past goalie Mateo Munarriz.
Colgate made it a two-goal spread at 69:18. Roughly 35 yards from goal, Nick Arpey served a ball into the Hartwick box and Evan Heroux got his head to the ball before a charging Munarriz. The ball bounced into the goal just before Munarriz recovered to bat the ball out.
The Hawks pressed by their opening goal with shots from Nathaniel Horton and David Styles in the next six minutes. Horton’s shot went wide and Styles’ was saved by Stapleton.
At 86:04, Oost-Lievense served a ball into the box that Keefe got a piece of and sent toward the near post. Stapleton got his fingers to it but could not keep the ball out of his goal and the Hawks were within one.
Hartwick had a 9-8 edge in shots. Colgate led, 6-5, in corner kicks. Munarriz and Stapleton both finished with three saves.
