Gibboney moves to 2nd in Lyco men’s soccer wins

Thanks to a controlling offense and a stout defense, the 11th-ranked Lycoming College men’s soccer team played a complete game in its 3-0 MAC Commonwealth win over Albright College on Wednesday afternoon.

With the win, Lycoming head coach Nate Gibboney has 66 wins in his five-year career, tying Rob Eaton, who coached from 1990-95, for the second-most career wins in program history. It was also the senior class’ 55th career win, expanding their school record as the team has notched a 55-12-9 (.783) record in the last five years.

The Warriors got on the board in the 33rd minute when junior Jake Webb crossed his corner kick into the 18-yard box where sophomore Tanner Fonjweng fired a shot which was deflected and sophomore Steven Riad lasered in the loose ball for the 1-0 advantage. It was Webb’s team-leading fifth assist.

• Willow Perkins’ goal in the final minute of the first half proved to be all Bloomsburg would need to edge Mansfield 1-0 on a soggy afternoon in college field hockey.

The Mountaineers made six saves in the first half, including a defensive save by Madison Wilinsky, but Perkins took advantage of a deflected ball and put it in goal.

• Nick Musto had a hat trick and Dominic Caputo had a goal and assist in Montoursville’s 4-2 win over South Williamsport in boys soccer.

Tayge Molino and Curtis Sauers both scored for the Mounties.
