Mixed Results for Men’s Soccer

The Penn State men’s soccer team had mixed results over the weekend,¬†going 1-1 in the Penn State Classic.

Penn State first played Bucknell on Friday. They wasted no time scoring, with freshman Jordan Tyler scoring at 1:14 into the game. The Nittany Lions dominated the early part of the game, but Bucknell would end the half looking the stronger of the teams. Bucknell’s pressure culminated in a 37th minute own-goal by Penn State that leveled the score at 1-1.

Bucknell came out stronger in the second half as well and scored in the 77th minute. After the goal, Penn State pressured and came close to scoring several times before the game was over. Despite the strong effort, PSU ultimately fell to Bucknell 2-1.

Binghamton was the opponent for Penn State on Sunday afternoon, and the two teams played a thriller. Penn State started off well, with Tyler scoring in the 11th and 19th minutes. Binghamton nicked one back in the 28th minute to cut into Penn State’s lead.

 Junior Corey Hertzog started the scoring in the second half to extend the lead to 3-1. However, Binghamton would answer back with goals in the 64th and 69th minutes. The game looked like it would end in a tie, but in the 85th minute, Hertzog scored a beauty of a goal. From about 45 yards out, Hertzog noticed the Binghamton goalie off his line and lobbed a beautiful ball into the back of the net. That would be the game-winning goal, for a 4-3 Penn State victory.

With last weekend’s results, Penn State goes to 3-1. They travel to Colorado next weekend for two tough road games.

Upcoming schedule:

Friday: at Air Force, 9 p.m.
