How It Happened

It took nearly 100 minutes but Penn State Harrisburg kept its perfect record in North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) play intact thanks to a 1-0 overtime victory over league foe Keuka at Nittany Soccer Field on Saturday afternoon, Oct. 19.


With less than a minute remaining in the extra session, Shammah Gahomera corralled a ball and made a cross into the Keuka box that was bodied by Luis Velasco before Joey Aman swept in and finished off the play with a shot past goalkeeper Ryan Velte in the 99th minute, setting off a celebration on the Blue & White sideline.



The Lions (12-4, 8-0 NEAC) held advantages in both total shots and shots on goal but were especially aggressive in the overtime period, getting off five attempts and keeping the Wolves (4-9-1, 3-5 NEAC) from getting off a shot during that stretch.


Inside the Numbers

- Saturday's win was Penn State Harrisburg's fifth in a row.

- The victory was Dan Krzyzanowicz's 50th since taking over as head coach.

- The Lions held a 12-to-4 edge in total attempts and a 4-to-1 advantage in shots on frame.

- The Blue & White earned six corner kicks, compared to just two for Keuka.
