Brooklyn, Ny. - The Nittany Lions battled with Pratt Institute for 90 minutes, ultimately settling for a stalemate 0-0 draw at Aviator Field against the Cannoneers. Senior keeper Jacob Pryma (Coatesville, Pa.) stopped four shots on the day in his first action in goal for Hazleton to keep the Lions out of the loss column for the second straight game.
Hazleton dominated the ball in the first half, registering 10 shot attempts in the first half compared to just two for the Cannoneers. Nittany Lion Aaron Wrobleski reeled off five of those shots in the first half, including a late shot off the post but the Lions were unable to capitalize off the first half momentum. Second half action was a much more even affair although Hazleton continued to play solid on the defensive side. A last gasp effort by Pratt nearly broke the stalemate after a save by Pryma came back into play, but a clutch clearance by freshman Andrew Crotts (Kintnersville, Pa.) kept the shut out in tact.
Next up: Hazleton is back in action on Wednesday, September 11 when they host Lackawanna College at 7:00 p.m. at the Hazleton campus.
