PHILADELPHIA – The Saint Joseph’s men’s soccer team (2-5-5, 0-2-0 Atlantic 10) was unable to overcome three second-half Duquesne goals as the Hawks fell to the Dukes, 3-0, in Atlantic 10 action on Sunday afternoon at Sweeney Field. The Hawks will look for their first win of the season this Friday at La Salle.<br />
<br />
Duquesne (6-5-0, 1-1-0 Atlantic 10) kicked off the scoring right out of halftime as Filip Velasevic and Thomas De Villardi found Kadeem Pantophlet, who put it to the left of Saint Joseph’s redshirt senior goalkeeper Andrew D’Ottavi for the 1-0 advantage.<br />
<br />
The Dukes would add two more tallies as Chris Alescio scored in the 60th minute and Martin Fiemawhle netted the Dukes’ third goal in the 77th minute. Pantophlet assisted on Alescio’s while Simon Gomez helped on Fiemawhle’s tally.<br />
<br />
In the second half, Duquesne held a slight 6-5 advantage over Saint Joseph’s in shots, but the Dukes saw 50 percent (3-of-6) of those shots land on goal, all for goals. SJU took five shots in the second half but only landed one on goal as sophomore midfielder Tim Lazorko took a solid shot on net in the 73rd minute.<br />
<br />
In a scoreless first half, the Dukes held a 9-5 advantage in shots, but each team landed three shots on goal as each squad’s goalkeepers made three first-half saves.<br />
<br />
For the Hawks, junior forward Mike Glazer, Lazorko, junior midfielder Jake Nelson, and senior midfielder Jimmy Reilly each landed one shot on goal.<br />
<br />
D’Ottavi (2-5-5, 0-2-0 Atlantic 10) made three saves, all in the first half.<br />
<br />
In a pregame ceremony, the Saint Joseph’s University Athletic Department and Men’s Soccer program dedicated the Blaney Family Locker Room in honor of Ed and Jo Blaney.<br />
