MIDDLETOWN, Pa. — The Southern Virginia men's soccer team fell to Penn St.-Harrisburg on Saturday morning by a score of 3-0. 

In the first half, the Lions (8-4, 1-1 CAC) scored two goals and took six more shots than the Knights (3-8, 0-2 CAC). In the second period, the Knights' defense held the Lions scoreless for the final 40 minutes of the game, after giving up a goal early in the half. Three shots were taken by the Knights in the half, including their only shot on goal from defender Shon Dyamond in the 54th minute.

Also with shots for the Knights was senior Gregg Allen, junior Ben Knapmeyer, and freshman Jeremy Wilson.

Southern Virginia suffered from a lack of opportunities in the attacking third and took only two corner kicks to the Lions' six. 

Goalkeeper Colin Flynn finished out the game with six saves in the loss.

Southern Virginia will hit the road again on Wednesday to take Christopher Newport in another conference matchup. Kickoff will be at 7:00 p.m. in Newport News, Va.
