Czerniak Hat Tricks as Centurions Topple Lehigh Carbon

SCHNECKSVILLE, Pa.- The Men's Soccer team traveled to Lehigh Carbon Community College on Thursday. Scoring came in bunches for the Centurions as they looked to get back on track after a disappointing loss to Ocean County Tuesday. Derek Czerniak got things started off an assist from Shawn McComas at the 16th minute mark giving Bucks the 1-0 advantage. Nearly fifteen minutes later Czerniak would answer again this time with help from Victor Molina taking a 2-0 lead. Molina looking to help more of his teammates found Diego Valdez as he netted the third goal of the first half with just a couple left. Bucks would take the 3-0 lead into the half. It would not be long however as the second half begun that Howard Haas would strike the net off of course another Molina assist. Czerniak fought through the Cougar defense yet again with an assist by Tyler Andre to net his third on the day and secure the hat trick, Bucks' second of the season both by different members of the team. Finally with three minutes left in the game Molina's generosity ran thin as he decided to net one for himself. Final score Bucks 6, Lehigh Carbon 1. 

Lehigh Carbon drops to 2-11 overall, 2-8 in the region and 2-7 in the conference. 

Bucks improves to 9-4 overall, 8-3 in the region and 7-1 in the conference securing a spot in the Region XIX Playoffs.
