ABINGTON, Pa. - Gallaudet University scored the game's first goal just under five minutes into Saturday's North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) men's soccer game at Penn St.-Abington but two late second-half goals did in the Bison, 3-1.

Gallaudet (0-9-1, 0-5 NEAC) struck first when junior Raymond Mukhailov (Brooklyn, N.Y.) scored his fourth goal of the season off an assist from sophomore Julien Cano (Avondale, Ariz.) at the 4:40 mark.

The Bison held the 1-0 lead until the 32:24 mark when Penn St.-Abington's Hernando Villamil tied the game off an assist from David Panea.

The two teams went into halftime knotted at one.

In the second half, Penn St.-Abington (5-4, 3-2 NEAC) held Gallaudet to no shots while Jose Palomeque scored back-to-back unassisted goals in the 86th and 90th minute to secure the 3-1 win for the Nittany Lions.

Sophomore goalie Shane Angel (Mechanicsville, Md.) made five saves while his counterpart Esteban Leon made no saves and faced one shot on goal.
