BRYN ATHYN, PA – The Keuka College Men's Soccer team suffered their first loss of the season on Sunday against Bryn Athyn College. The Lions topped the Green and Gold 1-0 in a North Eastern Athletic Conference matchup.

Bryn Athyn (8-8-1, 4-6-1 NEAC) scored on a penalty kick in the 30th minute to take the early lead. They outshot Keuka (11-1-3, 8-1-2 NEAC) 5-1 in the first half and carried the 1-0 advantage into halftime.

Keuka increased the pressure in the second half. They held a 4-1 advantage in corner kicks, but were only able to manage two shots on goal in the half. The Lions defense would hold and they would go onto the 1-0 victory over Keuka.

Preston Vick made four saves in the loss.

Keuka College will return home next Saturday with their NEAC Tournament destiny in their own hands. The Green and Gold host Morrisville State at 1pm. A victory over the Mustangs and Keuka College will host the North Eastern Athletic Conference Men's Soccer Tournament.
