GREENSBURG, Pa. – McDaniel scored twice in the first 13 minutes of the season, opening 2017 with a 2-0 win at Pitt-Greensburg in non-conference men's soccer action on Friday.

Raul Escobar (Silver Spring, Md./Blake) was the only upperclassman to register a point for the Green Terror (1-0), who had five freshmen in the Starting 11 for the season opener. Two of those rookies notched their first collegiate goals.

Reese Laurell led the Bobcats (0-1) with four saves in goal.

Freshman Drake Pew (York, Pa./Dallastown Area) finished a pass into the box by Escobar for the opening goal just 9:39 into the contest.

Nick Bowman (York, Pa./York Suburban) headed a ball over the keeper to double the advantage nearly three minutes later.

Nick Over (Westminster, Md./Winters Mill) saved the only Pitt-Greensburg shot on net.

McDaniel finished with a 13-3 advantage in shots and 7-2 edge in corner kicks.

The Green Terror returns to action at St. Vincent on Saturday. Game time is 9 a.m.
