The Lakers suffered their first loss of the season at the hands of Hamilton College on Tuesday afternoon.

THE BASICS

  • Result: Hamilton 2, Oswego 0
  • Location: Laker Turf Stadium - Oswego N.Y.
  • Records: Oswego (1-1) I Hamilton (1-0)

HOW IT HAPPENED

  • Hamilton's first goal came at 11:11 when Laker goalie Brian Terra dove at a crossing ball to try to punch it out of the box. The ball was able to squeak through to a Continental who found the back of the net.
  • Oswego's opponent struck again six minutes into the second half when a lone Laker defender tried to stop the ball but a pass to the far post found a teammate for a goal.  
  • The Lakers' sophomore goaltender had four saves on the day.
  • One of Terra's saves was on a Hamilton penalty-kick at 75:04, when he absorbed a low line-drive that was shot dead center between the posts.  
  • Jack Van Pelt and Iviko Gejadze were responsible for both of the Lakers' shots on-goal.
  • Oswego owned a 6-4 advantage in corner kicks.
