Men\'s soccer beats Moravian in Landmark opener

(Posted September 22, 2007)

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - A pair of second half Juniata College goals put a close game out of reach and helped the Eagles post a 3-1 win over Moravian College, in Landmark Conference men\'s soccer action Saturday afternoon in Bethlehem, Pa. Junior Bryan Hess (Hanover, Pa./South Western) put the Eagles on the scoreboard first with his unassisted goal in the 20th minute. That goal ended a furious opening attack by the Greyhounds, and enabled Juniata to get back into its game plan. \"They came out \'guns-a-blazin\', but we withstood it and we adjusted,\" said Juniata head coach Dan Dubois. \"We started going into our possession game, and we always seemed to be one step ahead of Moravian for the rest of the day.\" \"The guys really worked hard and deserved this win. Everything we\'ve practiced and everyone we\'re gone over worked for us today,\" said Dubois. The Eagles (3-5-0, 1-0-0 Landmark) added to their lead in the second half with an unassisted goal by Brandon Grim (Dallastown, Pa./Dallastown) in the 67th minute. Andrew Steffen (Lewisberry, Pa./Red Land) converted a penalty kick opportunity in the 70th minute to further widen the Juniata lead. Moravian spoiled Juniata\'s shutout bid in the 85th minute when Kyle Jablon scored off an assist by John Mikovits. Freshman keeper Joe Kohler (Vienna, Va./James Madison) recorded one save while playing all 90 minutes in the Juniata goal, while Greyhound keepers Chris Nederostek and Tim Dollarton combined to make five saves. Juniata outshot Moravian 15-11, but the Greyhounds received an 8-1 edge in corner kick opportunities. Juniata steps out of conference for its next matchup, a meeting with Lycoming College on Wednesday, Sept. 26, in Williamsport, Pa. -30-
