BROOKLYN HEIGHTS, N.Y. — St. Francis Brooklyn College scored a goal in each half to register a 2-1 non-conference win over Hartwick College Tuesday.
The Terriers (6-4), who outshot the Hawks 10-2 in the first half, were in control from the opening whistle, getting a point-blank shot off in the opening minute.
Their constant barrage was rewarded behind junior Ali Tounkara, who tallied his third goal of the season in the 31st minute, tying him for the team-best with classmate Sami Gliguem. Tounkara’s goal was assisted by junior Amir Islami.
In the second half, Hartwick turned the tables, controlling the pace, which caused the Terriers to bend defensively.
Over the match’s final 45 minutes, the Terriers were only able to get off one shot. That 56th-minute attempt resulted in St. Francis’ second goal, with the finish coming from senior Dominick Falanga. His second goal of the season was assisted by Federico Curbelo.
The Hawks pulled one back on a Jamie O’Grady goal set up by a Johnny McBeth feed in the 74th minute past goalkeeper Roberto Bazzichetto.
The Terriers will begin Northeast Conference play at Fairlegih Dickinson Sunday, Oct. 8.
