MIDDLETOWN, Pa. - In a physical and foul-laden North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) men's soccer match, Penn State Harrisburg shut out Gallaudet, 3-0, here Saturday at Nittany Soccer Field.

Gallaudet (0-8-1, 0-4 NEAC) recorded four shots in the game, two in each half, with one making it on goal where Lions goalie Nicholas Guglielmetti made the save.

Penn State Harrisburg (7-3, 4-0 NEAC) recorded 21 shots (14 on goal) and three goals. The Lions tallied their first goal in the 31st minute off the foot of Joey Aman as he scored off a penalty kick as Penn State Harrisburg led 1-0 at the half.

In the second half, the Lions scored twice in an eight-minute window. Toma Nichik scored his second goal of the season off an assist from Mohamed Kotby at the 75:33 mark. The third and final goal came in the 84th minute, off another penalty kicks, where Alexander Wardle converted the chance.

Tempers flared in the 80th minute as a player from each team received a red card. GU finished the game with four yellow cards and a red to go with 15 fouls. Penn State Harrisburg had 12 fouls and a red card.

Sophomore goalie Shane Angel (Mechanicsville, Md.) finished the game with 10 saves. Junior defender Sean O'Callaghan (San Diego, Calif.) had GU's lone shot on goal.
