Poorman’s goal lifts Salisbury over FSU

Bobcats knocked out of CAC tournament, 1-0

SALISBURY — Frostburg

State surrendered a late second-

half goal and eventually

lost 1-0 to

top-seeded

and ninthranked

Salisbury

in

the Capital

Athletic

Conference

Tournament

semifinals

on Wednesday afternoon.

The Bobcats (12-6) and Sea

Gulls (17-2) played to a scoreless

tie for much of the contest

until Salisbury's Stephen

Poorman connected on the

game-winner in the 81st

minute of action.

Following a foul on Frostburg,

Tanner East hit a free

kick through the 18-yard box

to the back post where Poorman

put a shot past Bobcat

keeper Hassan Mostafa for

the game’s only tally.

Despite allowing the goal at

80:28, Mostafa kept the sixthseeded

Bobcats in the contest

with diving save after diving

save. He stopped eight shots

total, four in each half.

Salisbury finished with a 17-

8 advantage in shots, including

a 6-1 edge in corner kicks.

The Sea Gulls will host second-

seeded York in the championship

game on Saturday.

Frostburg now awaits a possible

berth in the ECAC Men’s

Soccer Championship South

Region that starts Wednesday.
