With three goals scored by American International College (AIC) in the second half of their Saturday match with University of New Haven, the Chargers men’s soccer lost at home, 3-0.

The Chargers appeared to have scored the game’s opening goal on a shot by senior Nate Peduzzi, but the play was called back for offsides.

The teams headed into the halftime break scoreless, but the Yellow Jackets broke through less than 10 minutes into the second half on a goal by junior Connor Hicks, off a feed from junior Josip Validzic.

AIC added a pair of goals in the final eight minutes of the game, on goals by freshman Adrian Hoeflich and senior Filipe Novelli. Novelli and Validzic had the assists on those goals.

With the loss, the Chargers drop to 0-1-0 in conference play and 2-2-0 overall. New Haven faces a tall task this Wednesday when they take on the Adelphi Panthers, who are ranked number one in all of Division II.
