FSU men’s soccer wins Devil Classic
David Trabold’s goal 1:24 into the first overtime sent the Fredonia men’s soccer team to a 2-1 victory over Houghton and helped the team claim the Blue Devil Classic title on Saturday evening at University Stadium. The win moved the Devils to 4-0 on the season.
Houghton scored the game’s first goal just over 12 minutes into the fray. That lead would hold up much of the day.
It wasn’t until the 68th minute that the Blue Devils would get on the board. Parker Healy headed a ball over the Houghton defender and passed to Matt Belardi on the right side. Belardi then passed the ball across the box and Pa Lu drove in the tying goal. Belardi was credited with the assist.
Lu would later assist on Trabold’s game winner.
Ty Bentham turned in a solid performance in goal. He made six saves and allowed one goal. Jared Crouch had four saves and allowed a pair of goals for the Highlanders.
Fredonia out-shot Houghton 14-10 for the game.
Buffalo State was awarded second place in the weekend tournament after pasting Alfred State, 6-1, on the turf field. Houghton finished third and Alfred State fourth.
Trabold was named the Tournament MVP. He scored a goal in Friday’s 5-0 win over Alfred State and now has one goal in each of the team’s four games this season. All-Tournament Team winners also included Lu, Healy, and Parker Ross.
Fredonia’s Trabold was the tournament MVP joining his other teammates — Pa Lu, Healy and Ryan Ross — on the All-Tournament team.

The Lions regained the lead when Oberlander connected on an un assisted goal in the 32nd minute.
Behrend kept the pressure on. The Lions threatened at the 12:00 mark. On a corner kick, Fredonia’s Abby Seymore blocked a shot from 10 feet out to preserve the tie.
At the 14:41 mark, Fredonia netminder Marissa Quimby made a diving save. She had another spectacular stop, leaping to deflect an attempt with 9:00 left in the half. Behrend took the 2-1 lead into the locker room.
The second half saw Fredonia tie the game six and a half minutes in. Abby Price shot the ball out of a cluster unassisted in front of the net to make it 2-2.
Behrend then controlled most of the action for the balance of the second half, scoring three more times.
It could have been more, but Quimby stopped a breakaway attempt with 21:00 remaining. She finished the day with eight saves while surrendering five goals.
Ania Gorski made five saves while surrendering two goals fro Behrend. The Lions improve to 3-1, while Fredonia drops to 1-3.
