Shippensburg (4-8-3, 2-8 PSAC East) trailed in the second half but equaled the score when a cross from senior Harry Kershaw (Wardle, England/Wardle Academy) was sent into the net by a Warrior defender.


East Stroudsburg (6-6-2, 4-3-2) nearly opened the scoring early in the second half but a goal was negated due to an offsides call. ESU later scored in the 69th minute after Alexander Andersen scored off a rebound from Colby Raymond’s shot that was saved by freshman Ryan Glenlast (Lancaster, Pa./Pequea Valley).

In the 79th minute, East Stroudsburg struck again off a Raymond penalty kick which proved to be the game winner.

Shots on goal were 7-5 in Shippensburg’s favor, while corners were 3-1 in East Stroudsburg’s favor. Glenlast finished with three saves, while ESU’s Ray Fortebuono made six saves.
