HAMILTON, N.Y. - Senior defender Jerry Dickinson (Pittsburgh, Pa.) scored late in the first half but it wasn't enough as the Holy Cross men's soccer team dropped a 2-1 decision to Colgate in the Patriot League Championship game at Van Doren Field.
Less than six minutes into the first half, at the 5:29 mark, the Raiders' Matt Leach crossed the ball to Alex Weekes, making a quick touch in the far right corner, making the score 1-0.
With less than eight minutes left in the half, at the 37:31 mark, Dickinson scored on his own rebound after his initial shot was saved by Colgate's David Cappuccio, making the score 1-1 before the break.
Just under 11 minutes remaining in the game, a free kick by Jeff Leach set up a header by Weekes, securing a 2-1 victory for the Raiders.
Junior goalkeeper Thomas Booth (Patchogue, N.Y.) made five saves for Holy Cross while Cappuccio had three stops.
The Crusaders end their 2008 season at 9-5-5.
