Reading, Pa. - The Penn State Harrisburg Men's Soccer team lost a heartbreaker to the Misericordia Cougars by a score of 1-0 in the Eastern College Athletic South Championship Sunday. The Lions were not able to finish their outstanding season with a championship, but they have nothing to hang their heads over as they complete arguably the best season in program history.
The top seeded Lions and the third seeded Cougars played to a scoreless first half draw. Misericordia was able to send several shots toward the Lions goal, but goaltender Brandon Hoover (Lancaster, Pa./ Pequea Valley) did all he could to keep the game tied at zero. The Cougars outshot Harrisburg 7-6 through the first 45 minutes of play.
Head Coach Seamus Donnelly took home his first ever conference coach of the year award as well as five men being named to the CAC All-Conference team. This season has set the bar high for the still young squad, but that is exactly where this program on the rise expects to be.
