Men's Soccer kept up with undefeated Penn State Brandywine deep into the second half, three times answering a Brandywine goal with one of their own, but ultimately fell 5–3. A 75th minute goal gave Brandywine the lead for good and Bill Walleekendeh finished his hat trick in the 83rd minute to put the game away for the visitors.

Brandywine opened the scoring in the 34th minute, but Penn State York answered four minutes later when Jonathan Vilca scored off of Adel Avdic's free kick to take the game into halftime tied at one goal a piece.

Brandywine's Walleekendeh would score unassisted in the 49th and 61st minutes, but both times York answered almost immediately with Adel Avdic breakaway goals.

Penn State York fell to 4–5 on the year (3–5, PSUAC), while Penn State Brandywine improved to 10–1 (6–0, PSUAC). York closes out the regular season at home on Saturday against Penn State New Kensington.
