Men's soccer shocks Saint Vincent

The Pitt-Bradford men's soccer team scored five second half goals Friday, erasing a 3-0 deficit, to shock Saint Vincent 5-3.

It was the Panthers' second straight win and comes on the heels of Alessandro Ortiz's overtime winner on Wednesday.

The Bearcats lead 2-0 at halftime, and Kevin Proctor's second goal in the 60th minute stretched the visitor's lead to 3-0.

Ortiz responded moments later, lacing a shot in from nearly 25 yards out for his third goal of the season. Brian Bao played a pass ahead and Ortiz fired after just one brief touch. Less than four minutes later, Nick Walker took a pass from Josiah Blick, split two defenders and scored from the top of the box.

Seth Levy's goal from 15 yards out in the 75th minute leveled the score. Blick was credited with the assist again as Levy finished in the far corner.

In the 83rd minute, Colton Bly collected a deflection in front of the net and scored to push the Panthers ahead 4-3. Bao added an insurance tally shortly after, scoring in transition off a Levy pass, to cap the scoring.

After being outshot 17-4 in the first half, the Panthers held a 12-5 advantage in the final period. Adam Forster recorded six saves to earn the win.

Pitt-Bradford improves to 2-2 on the year and travels to Lycoming Sunday.
