Men’s Soccer: Lee leads PSC in shortened game

KEYSER, W.V. — Brandon Lee scored a pair of goals in a 10 second span early in the first half and Potomac State closed the regular season by snapping a three-game losing streak with a 2-0 win over Howard Saturday at Stayman Field.

Play was suspended at the end of the first half after an injury delay lasted almost an hour and resulted in Potomac State goalie Alec Sproule being airlifted to Western Maryland Regional Medical Center in Cumberland after a collision caused him to lose consciousness.

Lee broke a scoreless tie with 10:30 gone in the half off of an assist from Jerad Fike. Howard’s goalie misplayed a pass after the Dragons got the ball back and Lee was there to make them pay 10 seconds after his first goal to make it 2-0.

Sproule had five saves before leaving with the injury and Chris Orwig had one save as his replacement. Howard’s Garrett Petters finished with two saves.

“We’ve been struggling a little so it’s nice to be able to grab some momentum right before the playoffs,” said Potomac State coach Ray Kiddy. “Just when we thought we were going to be healthy for the playoffs we got some bad news, but it’s something we’ll have to fix as a team.”

The two teams will meet in a Region XX quarterfinal Thursday, this time at Howard. The Catamounts are 11-7 and the Dragons are 11-6.
