Men’s Soccer: Catamounts drop regular-season finale

KEYSER, W.V. — Lorenzo Olanos scored a goal and assisted on another as Frederick Community College edged Potomac State, 2-1, in the regular- season finale for the Catamounts men’s soccer team on Tuesday.

Frederick (9-7) led 1-0 at halftime and 2-0 midway through the second and held off Potomac State (8-6) the rest of the way for the win.

Manuel Mejitanos scored in the first half for the Cougars, and Olanos made it 2-0 with an unassisted goal with 32:22 left in regulation.

Potomac State had a goal called back on a pushing foul at the 30-minute mark, then got on the board when former Northern High standout Jacob Williams scored on an assist from former Mountain Ridge standout Tyler Sisler at 27:16.

Potomac State, which got off 12 shots in the second half, led in shots 15-12 and in corner kicks 9-4. Alex Sproule made eight saves in goal for the Catamounts. Cole Stevens had eight for Frederick.

“It was a hard-fought game, and we feel bad for our sophomores because it was their last home game before the playoffs,” said PSC coach Ray Kiddy. “We have six losses, and four have come in 2-1 games. We just haven’t had any luck.”

The Catamounts begin Region XX Tournament play on Saturday in a 6 p.m. semifinal at Anne Arundel.
