Senior Aidan Callahan scored twice and sophomore Andrew Terhune scored his first collegiate goal to lead the St. Lawrence University men's soccer team to a 3-0 shutout win over Hartwick in game two of the Mayor's Cup tournament on Sunday afternoon in Oneonta, New York.
Saints' goalkeeper Ben Kelty made one save to earn his first shutout of the season.
Matthew Lawlor sent a cross into the box and found Callahan, who put the header away for the Saints first goal in the 5th minute of play.
Just about ten minutes later, Callahan made it 2-0 St. Lawrence on a penalty kick.
In the 56th minute, Terhune scored his first goal, with a header off the corner kick from first-year Marvin Sibanda.
Hartwick goalkeeper Britt Reisman finished with eight saves.
St. Lawrence held a 20-4 shot advantage, including an 11-1 lead in shots on goal. The Saints also led 5-1 in corner kicks.
With the win, the Saints improved to 2-2-0 on the season, while Hartwick fell to 1-2.
St. Lawrence will travel to Cortland, New York to take on SUNY Cortland, Saturday, September 14 at 4 p.m.
Penn State Beherend 2 -0 Potsdam 1:. Sixteenth-ranked Penn State-Behrend (4-0) scored two goals in a 2:12 span of the second half and then held off the SUNY Potsdam men's soccer team (2-2-1) for a 2-1 win on Sunday afternoon. Senior forward Alejandro Callejas (Bayshore, N.Y./Brentwood) scored for the Bears.
As it was in Friday's match, defense continued to be the story this afternoon. The Bears and Lions matched each other with four shots apiece. Penn State-Behrend pressure resulted in three corner kicks, but Potsdam defused each situation. The contest was still scoreless at the break.
The Lion offense found a small seam in the Bears' defense seven minutes into the second half and made the most of it. At 52:01, Aaron Harris buried a feed from Matthew Romesberg. Romesberg continued to make plays 2:12 later as he connected with Richard Blanchard to make it 2-0. Potsdam was able to crack Penn State-Behrend's defense about 23 minutes later. Callejas struck for his fourth goal of the year with an assist from junior defender Brendan Wall (Massapequa Park, N.Y./Massapequa) at 77:08. Potsdam had a chance to tie with 16 seconds left, but shot from freshman defender Raymond Jones (Queensbury, N.Y./Queensbury) sailed high.
Sophomore goalkeeper Conor Callan (Piermont, N.Y./Tappan Zee) and Lions' goalie Matt Warnaka each finished with a save. The teams each had eight shots in the contest and Penn State-Behrend had four corners to the Bears' one.
Oneonta, NY - Senior Elyse Green made eight saves for the Clarkson University Women's Soccer team on Sunday, but a penalty kick got past her in the 80th minute to end the Golden Knights season-opening four-game unbeaten streak as the Green and Gold dropped a 1-0 decision to Hartwick College on day two of the Mayor's Cup Tournament.
The Golden Knights moved to 3-1-1 on the season while the Hawks improved to 3-1-0. Clarkson begins a three-game home stand next Friday when the team hosts Oswego State at 3:00 pm on Hantz Turf Field.
Clarkson had the first shot of the game when Megan Murphy went wide late in the third minute, but Hartwick owned a 10-3 edge in shots in the first half and ended up with a 18-9 edge overall. However, the Knights' nine attempts failed to get on frame, never truly challenging Hartwick goalkeeper Cassandra Robataille.
It appeared as if the Knights, despite coming up short on offense, could slip by with a possible tie, but the Hawks were awarded a penalty kick at 79:42. Gabrielle Kreppein converted for her first goal of the year to give Hartwick a 1-0 advantage. After the lone goal of the game, Clarkson had one last gasp on offense, but Danielle Martin's shot in the 87th minute missed its mark.
Green made eight saves in the defeat and still owns an .846 save percentage on the season. Robataille was not called upon to make a save for Hartwick. The Hawks also had a 5-2 edge in corner kick chances.
Sophomore William Wilson shot a 4-under-par on the weekend, with a 68 on day one and a par-72 on day two, to claim his first collegiate individual title and lead the St. Lawrence University men's golf team to a second place finish at the St. Lawrence Invitational at the Oliver D. Appleton Golf Course in Canton on Sunday afternoon.
Wilson shot 4-under to take a two stroke lead after day one and continued to lead the 59-player field on Sunday, shooting a 72 for a combined 140 on the weekend.
St. Lawrence finished day two with a combined 595, while Clarkson bumped Hamilton out of third place with 597. Tom Egbers tied for 11th, while Michael Bliss tied for 16th, Peyton Knauf tied for 19th and Bryan McLennan tied for 30th.
NYU led the field with a team score of 6-over-par 582 after two rounds. All five of the Violets' golfers finished in the top-10, with Robbie Keyes and Christian Wentzel finishing third and sixth, respectively and the rest of the squad all tied for seventh.
St. Lawrence will play a one round match against Clarkson in Potsdam on Tuesday, September 10th.
SUNY Canton's Josh Marshall and Devin Page finish the Saint Lawrence Invitational tied for 22nd overall to lead Roos to a seventh place finish following Sunday’s rouund.
Maggie O'Connell shot a career-best 97 on day two of the St. Lawrence Invitational lead the St. Lawrence University women's golf team at the par-72 Oliver D. Appleton Golf Course in Canton on Sunday afternoon.
O'Connell shot a combined 56 over par to tie for 41st place, while Fiona Wang shot a 209 on the weekend to finish 44th and Maggie Munschauer improved her score by 37 on day two to finish 47th.
NYU claimed first place, shooting just 5-over-par on the weekend for a combined 581 after two rounds of play. The Violets Navika Kuchakulla shot 2-under-par on day one and a par-72 on day two for a combined 142 to claim the women's individual title.
Middlebury took second, while Hamilton, SUNY Cortland and Ithaca rounded out the top-five teams.
O'Connell, Wang and Munschauer competed as individuals, so the Saints do not appear in the team standings.
