FAIRFIELD, Conn. – The top-seeded Monmouth University men’s soccer team and the 4th  seeded Manhattan College men’s soccer team battled to a double overtime draw, but the Hawks advanced to the title round of the 2013 MAAC Men’s Soccer Championships with a 3-0 advantage in penalty kicks on Friday.

Monmouth, now 8-6-5 overall, will face second-seeded Quinnipiac in Sunday’s championship round at Fairfield University’s Lessing Field at 1:00 p.m. Quinnipiac battled Iona to a 1-1 tie in double overtime, but moved on to the title game with a 7-6 advantage in the penalty kicks round.

The championship game will be televised on MAAC.TV.

Monmouth and Manhattan battled to a scoreless draw in 110 minutes, which included 90 minutes of regulation play and two 10 minute overtime periods. Both teams had their opportunities during the match, but were unable to convert.

Following the second scoreless overtime period, the two teams lined up at midfield for penalty kicks. Monmouth’s Joseph Schmid converted on the first kick, hitting the left corner as Manhattan goalkeeper Alex Coates McDowall dove the opposite way, giving the Hawks a 1-0 edge.

Monmouth goalie Eric Klenofsky made saves on Manhattan’s two attempts, while Monmouth converted its next two efforts, by David Acuno Camacho and Derek Luke. Manhattan missed its last effort giving the Hawks the 3-0 advantage in the best of five shootout.

Monmouth outshot Manhattan 24-13 in the game. Both freshmen goalkeepers were tested throughout, as the Hawks’ Klenofsky made seven saves and while the Jaspers’ Coates McDowall had six.  

The two teams also battled to a scoreless double overtime draw in their regular season matchup on Oct. 30.

Manhattan concluded its season with a 5-10-3 mark. The Jaspers struggled to a 0-7 non-conference record, but showed significant improvement as the season advanced and went 5-3-3 in its final 11 matches.
