Hawks Fall to Division II 11th Ranked Montevallo

MONTEVALLO, Ala. --- The Huntingdon men's soccer team dropped the match to talented Division II no. 11 Montevallo on Wednesday night, 8-0.

In the first-half, the Hawks were unable to take a shot on goal, while Montevallo scored four goals coming in the 16th, 17th, 22nd, and 42nd minute.

The Hawks were able to take four shots on goal in the second half of the contest, led by Joseph Jean with two shots. Montevallo added to the 4-0 lead with four more goals in the 48th, 53rd, 54th, and 83rd minute, while securing the shutout over Huntingdon.

Matt Russell recorded 10 saves in goal for 65 minutes, while Jordan Osborne tallied four saves in the last 25 minutes of action.

“Our guys battled hard in the match, but Montevallo proved to have a very talented group of players well deserving of the national ranking,” said head coach Kevin Ray.

The Hawks will return to action on Saturday, Oct. 23, hosting conference opponent Piedmont at Huntingdon's Soccer Field. Kickoff for the match is set at 3 p.m.
