FROSTBURG, MD —
Frostburg State posted a hard-fought 1-0 shutout of Pitt-Greensburg in a key Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference contest Saturday afternoon.
FSU improved to 8-4-2 overall and a perfect 5-0 in the AMCC, while UPG fell to 12-4-1 overall and 4-2 in conference play.
The Red and Black took the lead in the ninth minute when freshman Stephen Zoutman (Goshen/Chester, N.Y.) found the net off an assist from junior Jamie Romano (John Carroll/Joppatowne, Md.).
FSU out shot Pitt-Greensburg 7-5 and held a 9-4 edge in corners. UPG’s Adam Zeleznick, who came into the match with an AMCC-best 19 goals, was held without a shot by a strong FSU defensive effort.
Freshman Tom Sadler (Sandy Spring Friends/Silver Spring, Md.) made three saves to earn his second shutout of the year.
"I thought we played well and fought hard for 90 minutes," said head coach Keith Byrnes. "UPG is a quality team, and I’m very pleased with the result. There is a good possibility that we’ll meet again in the AMCC Tournament, so we just have to keep going out there and fighting hard."
The Bobcats, who are now 8-1-2 in their last 11 matches, return to action tomorrow when they host Westminster at 3 p.m.
