KEYSER, W.Va. — Montgomery College scored four unanswered goals in the second half to come from behind from a 1-0 halftime deficit and win their sixth straight game, 4-1, over Potomac State Wednesday at Stayman Field.

Rhyse Fing gave the Cats a 1-0 lead when Tyler Sisler assisted him with 36 seconds remaining in the first half, but that was all the offense the Cats could come up with.

Khalil Munoz tied the score less than 10 minutes into the second half and Ralph St. Simmon was assisted by Marvin Martinez 12 minutes later to give Montgomery a 2-1 lead. 

At that point PSC coach Ray Kiddy decided to make some changes.

“We fell behind quickly in the second half, and we had just lost a close, 2-1 game with Anne Arundel so I didn’t want to lose another one like that. I made the decision to move Alec Sproule out as goalie and up to the front line to get a little more offense – which was a gamble – and it didn’t pay off. They got two quick goals to make it 4-1.”

Joel Alexis and Munoz scored unassisted goals slightly more than a minute apart for the final two goals.

Montgomery outshot the Cats 17-9 and led 7-4 in corner kicks. Sproule had 10 save before moving to offense, and Kevin Riley had two in his place. Shawn Marabola had five saves for the Raptors.

Potomac State lost for the second game in a row to slip to 5-4. It will play Tuesday at home against Northern Virginia. Montgomery began the season 0-5-1 before winning its last six.
