Valiants Conquered by the Knights

GLENSIDE, Pa. Manhattanville lost its second straight Freedom Conference contest on Saturday afternoon, falling to Arcadia by a final score of 11-3 at Easton Field.

Both Robert Palumbo and Joe Stanton scored three goals each for the Knights, leading Arcadia (5-4, 1-0 Freedom) past Manhattanville (0-11, 0-2 Freedom). The Valiants kept the game close until midway through the second period as the Knights were able to pull away.

After one period of play, Arcadia controlled a 2-0 lead on goals from Stanton and Ryan Carpenter. Under a minute into the second quarter, Manhattanville scored its first goal when it was junior Jack Polack finding the back of the net. Unfortunately for the Valiants, the Knights eventually answered with four straight second quarter goals, taking a 6-1 lead into halftime.

Arcadia came out firing in the second half, tallying four more goals in the third before freshman Andrew Murray (Yonkers, N.Y./Archbishop Stepinac) scored for Manhattanville, making it 10-2. Both teams found twine in the final quarter of play, including a goal from freshman Colin Morrissey (Shelton, Conn./St. Joseph) for the Valiants. The balanced attack of Arcadia led the Knights to their first Freedom Conference victory with an 11-3 victory over Manhattanville.

The Valiants look for their first victory of the season when they travel to take on non-conference foe Bard on Wednesday at 6:00 p.m.
