#13 Men’s Soccer Falls to Le Moyne 2-1


SYRACUSE, NY – The Merrimack men’s soccer team, ranked 13th nationally and second in the east region, dropped a hard fought game 2-1 to Le Moyne College Saturday afternoon.

Trailing 2-0 and playing a man down for the final 30 minutes after Adam Leone (East Northport, NY) was ejected after being carded twice, the Warriors didn’t quit. Tiago Dalboni (Medford, MA) scored an unassisted tally, his fourth of the year, after chipping a shot over the goalkeeper, perfectly executing a breakaway tally.

That would be all the scoring for the Warriors, who were outshot by Le Moyne 12-9.

Angelo Reina netted a breakaway tally at 16:19, while Sean Lawler added insurance at 61:48, just 1:48 after Leone was disqualified.

Rob Pedra (South Hamilton, MA) stopped three shots in net, while seeing his shutout streak end at 440 minutes.

Merrimack (8-2-2, 5-2-1 NE-10) will visit Southern Connecticut Saturday at 7 p.m., in a rematch of last season’s conference championship in which the Owls prevailed 2-1.
