EMMITSBURG, MD (October 17) - The Mount St. Mary's men's soccer team clipped visiting Sacred Heart, 1-0, in a Northeast Conference game at the Mount St. Mary's Soccer Field on Sunday afternoon. Sophomore Jeff Ormiston's first goal of the season propelled the Mount past Sacred Heart.

The Pioneers carried play for the first part of the game, but the Mount was able to keep SHU off the scoreboard. Sacred Heart had six corner kicks in the first half and each team had five shots.

The Mount came out flying in the second half and had two scoring chances in the first four minutes. Ormiston and Kurt Borel each had shots sail over the goal in that span. Sacred Heart, however, countered and Glenn Wilken's free kick nailed the post just five minutes into the half.

The Mount's goal came with 37:37 left in the game. Senior John Lutz drove down the left side of the field and blistered a shot on Sacred Heart goalkeeper Jason Roeder. The rebound went to the Mount's Borel, who took a shot that was blocked in traffic in front of the net and the rebound went straight to Ormiston, who buried the goal.

Sacred Heart had one more chance to tie the game, but Mount goalkeeper Gladimir Elysee made a nice save on a Gustavo Netto free kick with just under 10 minutes left.

The Pioneers return to action on Wednesday, Octoboer 20 when they travel down I-95 to take on the Yale Bulldogs in New Haven, at 7:00 PM.
