KEYSER, W.V. — Gabriel Ndiaye, the second-leading scorer in the country, helped the number two team in the nation, Montgomery College, hand Potomac State College its first loss, 5-1, Sunday afternoon at Keyser High School’s Tornado Alley.

Ndiaye and Geovanny Villatoro both scored two goals apiece and Michael Buscemi had the Knights’ other goal.

The Catamounts’ Brandon Lee, the seventh-leading scorer in the country, had Potomac State’s only goal on an assist from David Gogishvili at 31:59 of the second half that made the score 3-1.

All of Montgomery College’s goals were unassisted.

Villatoro broke a scoreless tie 1:26 before halftime.

In the second half, Ndiaye’s first goal less than three minutes in made it 2-0 and Buscemi’s goal two minutes later put the Knights in control at 3-0.

Ndiaye and Villatoro scored 20 seconds apart beginning with 10:47 remaining for the 5-1 final.

Montgomery outshot Potomac State 14-7 and held a 2-1 edge in corner kicks.
