GALLOWAY, N.J. --- The Moravian College men's soccer team jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first half but ended up settling for a 2-2 draw at Stockton University in non-conference action Wednesday evening.

The Greyhounds, who are 3-2-2 on the year, took a 1-0 lead in the 20th minute when freshman midfielder Anthony Nagy scored on a free kick from 35 yards out for his second goal of the season. The Hounds extended the advantage to 2-0 just three minutes later when freshman defender Jared Stafford tapped in a pass from senior defender David Durski from the top of the box for Stafford's second marker of the year.

The Ospreys answered in the 30th minute to cut the Blue and Grey's lead to 2-1, which would be the score after the first 45 minutes of action. Stockton would score the lone goal in the second half with a tally in the 66th minute to knot the score at 2-2, where it remained through the rest of regulation and the two 10-minute overtime sessions.

The Greyhounds would have the only shot attempt in the overtimes as sophomore Alec Aloia's sharp angle shot in the final 78 seconds was stopped. Hounds' sophomore goalie Michael Bone recorded four saves in the contest.

Moravian is slated to start the 2018 Landmark Conference season on Saturday, September 22 when the Greyhounds travel to Juniata College for a 4:00 p.m. match.
