Early Lycoming goal holds up as Juniata men's soccer drops 1-0 decision to Warriors
(Posted September 21, 2011)
WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. -- Lycoming College's Pat Marion scored the game's only goal just 14 seconds into the contest, as Juniata College men's soccer fell to Lycoming, 1-0, Wednesday afternoon at Shangraw Complex.
Marion took advantage of a turnover and beat Juniata keeper Boddhi Karzen (Makawao, Hawai'i/Seabury Hall) for the unassisted goal.
Karzen went on to make five saves over 90 minutes in the Juniata goal. Lycoming keepers James Quinn and Connor Keenan combined for six saves, as the Eagles outshot the Warriors, 13-12.
Juniata (2-2-0) responded to Lyco's early goal with a flurry of shots over the next 15 minutes, but none found their way past Warrior starter Quinn. The Eagles ended the first half with another aggressive series, logging five shots on Quinn over the final six minutes of the frame and forcing the Lycoming keeper to make three saves.
Lycoming (5-2-1) was forced to play shorthanded for the final 28 minutes, after starting defender Adam Kuntz was sent off with a red card. Juniata managed three shots after taking a man advantage, only one of which was on goal.
Juniata returns to action this Saturday, Sept. 24, when it travels to Kings Point, N.Y., to face the United States Merchant Marine Academy in its Landmark Conference opener. Game time is scheduled for 12:00 p.m.
