Nittany Lions squeak past Bison defense late in NEAC showdown

WASHINGTON - The Gallaudet University men's soccer defense battled with North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) foe Penn St.-Abington on Saturday evening at Hotchkiss Field. The Bison held their own until a quick lapse allowed the visiting Nittany Lions to head home the game-winner in the 78th minute. Penn St.-Abington (4-2, 2-0 NEAC) escaped with the win as Gallaudet (1-3-2, 0-2 NEAC) took two shots in the waning minutes.

Nittany Lion defender Dimitri Bourlako headed home the eventual game-winner past Bison goalie Eric Setzer (Middletown, Md.) at the 77:21 mark off an assist from Andrew Costa. Setzer finished the game with seven saves.

Junior Conrad Baer (Fremont, Calif.) had a nice shot at the 89:38 mark that Nittany Lion goalie Jose Arroyo (two saves) turned away to preserve the shutout.
