Hennings 2 Goals, Direct Kick Lead Hawks Into Regional Soccer Semi's

The MVCC Men's Soccer team advanced to the Region III Semifinals with a hard fought 3-2 win over SUNY Jefferson on Saturday. 

Kareem Hamad's header early in the contest put the Hawks up 1-0.  Mark Hennings scored his first goal of the game with 29 minutes left in the first half as MVCC took a 2-0 lead.  The Cannoneers would get on the scoreboard with 7 minutes remaning in the first half and tie the contest at 2 with nearly 2 minutes left in the opening half. 

Both teams had scoring chances in the second half before Mark Hennings direct kick with 34 seconds left found the back of the net and propelled MVCC to the victory.

Santiago Rojas has 5 saves in goal.

MV will travel to #1 seed Genesee CC on Tuesday for a Region III Semifinal game.
