The Men's Soccer team came out of the weekend 1-1 with a loss to Herkimer and a win against Clinton.  FM traveled to Herkimer on Saturday and suffered a 6-0 loss.  The Raiders played well until about four minutes to go in the first half when Herkimer's Luke Murphy scored three straight goals to end the half. FM had some solid looks on the offensive end, but the Generals managed three more goals and the Raiders suffered the loss.

FM bounced back less than 24 hours later when they hosted Clinton.  Jack Albertin led the Raiders with a hat trick and FM came out on top 3-1.

Albertin got FM on the board with 29 minutes remaining in the half, but Clinton was able to tie it up before the end of the half.  Eight minutes into the second half, Albertin once again found the back of the net.  The Raider defense kept the Clinton offense at bay the entire half.  With 26 minutes remaining, Aiden VanLoan set Albertin up on a perfect pass for his third goal of the day. 

The Raiders move to 2-2 on the season and will host the Broome Hornets on Saturday, September 16th
