In their PSAC opener against California University of Pennsylvania, the Marauders fought for a comeback victory late in the second half. Millersville won with a score of 2-1.
The game began with neither team able to score during the first half. But in the 63rd minute of play the Vulcans were awarded a penalty kick that was taken by Jeffrey Kyei. The ball just passed Millersville keeper Brad Benzing to give California a 1-0 advantage.
Ten minutes after the first goal was scored, Marauder Matt Kadoch, No. 9, jumped above the Vulcan defense to head a pass from Jaime Vazquez, No. 15, into the net. With the game tied the Marauders kept pushing forward and with 5 minutes of play left they managed to pull ahead with another goal. Andrew Dukes, No. 20, sent a pass to Ryan Rohrer, No. 27, who sent the ball into the net.
The game was evenly matched throughout with the Marauders narrowly outshooting the Vulcans 15-12; both teams were also very close in corner kicks with Millersville barely pulling ahead 4-3. This marks the 6th victory in a row the Marauders have claimed over the Vulcans in PSAC play since 2008.
