Men’s soccer earns win, draw

CLINTON, N.Y. — The Middlebury College men’s soccer team earned a win and a tie in two NESCAC road games this past weekend. The Panthers are 6-2-3 overall, 3-2-3 and in fifth place in NESCAC play heading into a Saturday home game vs. league foe Bates.
On this past Sunday, Middlebury defeated host Hamilton, 2-0, scoring twice in the first half. The Continentals dropped to 5-5-1 overall and 1-5-1 in NESCAC play.
The Panthers capitalized on a turnover to take the lead 97 seconds into play. Adam Glaser stole a pass outside the Hamilton box, worked a give-and-go on the left side with Greg Conrad, and scored his sixth goal of the season.
Conrad scored Middlebury’s second goal, taking a pass from Dan Skayne above the box in the 29th minute and sending a long curling shot into the top right of the net.
The Continentals outshot Middlebury, 13-11, but put only two of their shots on goal, both stopped by Middlebury goalkeeper Greg Sydor. Continental goalie Harris Pollack finished with four saves.
On Saturday, the Panthers finished in a 1-1 stalemate at Trinity (5-4-2, 1-4-2). Trinity took the lead midway through the first half, while Conrad equalized for Middlebury in the 62nd minute, from Glaser.
Trinity goalie Mateo Zabala made one save late in regulation and four of his eight total stops in the first 10-minute overtime to preserve the tie. Sydor made five saves for Middlebury, which held edges of 23-16 in shots and 10-3 in corner kicks.
