BETHLEHEM, Pa. â?? The Juniata College men\'s soccer team enjoyed a solid level of success winning tight matches during its non-conference season, but for the second time in as many matches the bounces have not gone the Eagles way in a conference outing as Juniata suffered a 2-1 set-back to Moravian College in Commonwealth Conference action in Bethlehem Saturday afternoon. With the loss the Eagles fall to 5-6, and 0-2 in conference play while the Greyhounds improve to 2-8-1, and 1-2 in conference play. After Moravian took an early lead with a goal in the 13th minute, Juniata bounced back with a goal of its own later in the half. In the 32nd minute Bryan Hess (South Western/Hanover) drilled his third goal of the season to tie the game at one. The goal came off a direct kick which Hess deposited in the net. But the Greyhounds would have the final answer as ate in the second half Moravian got the game winner when Kevin McGrorry crossed a ball into the box where it was redirected in by Blake Ritchey in the 77th minute to give Moravian the victory. Mark Guthridge (DuBois/DuBois) made four saves in net for the Blue and Gold, while the Eagles forced Moravian keeper Chris Nederostek to make a pair of saves. Moravian\'s first goal came from Louis Dollarton who converted a Brian Tarulli cross to put the Greyhounds in front early in the match. The shots were 13-9 in favor of the home team, though each team had six shots recorded in the first half. Juniata will return to action on Wednesday when they play a non-conference match at Dickinson. ###
