FROSTBURG, Md. –
DJ Craven and Eric Murillo each scored a goal for Penn State Behrend as it defeated Frostburg State 2-0, in Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference action Sunday afternoon at Bobcat Stadium.
PSB (6-7-2, 4-2-1) had the momentum early on in the first half taking five out of the game’s first six shots.
FSU (4-9-1, 2-3-1) had its best chance firing back-to-back shots late in the period. Senior Jeff Bisker (Fallston, Md./Fallston) had a header and sophomore Gregg Laskow (Plainsboro, N.J./WWP-North) ripped a shot towards the left side of the net, but both were saved by Lion keeper Thomas Rhiener.
Penn State Behrend got on the board with less than a minute until halftime, when Craven scored to give the visitor’s a 1-0 lead.
Despite losing at the break, Frostburg State had four excellent chances to tie the game early in the second stanza. Junior Kenny Dotter (Baltimore, Md./Sparrows Point) had three shots during that stretch, including one that got past the keeper but hit the right post.
Just before the midway point of the second half, Murillo took a pass from Josh Serafini and slipped it past diving Bobcat keeper Jay Heford (Crofton, Md./South River) for the second goal of the contest.
FSU would register just two shots the rest of the way as the game came to an end.
PSB outshot FSU 13-11 for the contest, but the Bobcats held the second half edge, 7-5.
Senior Derek Richardson (New Windsor, Md./Linganore) started the game in net for Frostburg State making two saves allowing one goal while Herford played the second half stopping three shots allowing one score. Rhiener played the entire game for Penn State Behrend making six saves.
Frostburg State returns to action on Wednesday, October 18 when it travels to Mt. Aloysius at 4:00 pm.
