Brad Hilton scored the only goal of the game in the 63rd minute to lead the University of New Hampshire men’s soccer team to a 1-0 victory over Air Force Friday evening in the first round of the Nike Fall Classic at Bremner Field.

The win lifts the Wildcats to 3-4 on the season, while the Falcons, who had their four-game winning streak snapped, fell to 5-2.

Steven Palumbo ignited the game-winning tally, sending a pass from midfield to the right flank, where Hilton finished the play by striking the ball into the top right hand corner of the net from 25 yards out at 62:45.

UNH’s defense was stellar throughout the contest, holding the Falcons at bay, limiting them to just two shots on goal in the entire game.

Travis Worra registered his second consecutive shutout for UNH, tallying two saves in the win. Falcon goalie Matt Underwood had two saves in net for the Falcons.

Next Up: The Falcons are back in action when they play Central Connecticut State in the second round of the 22nd Annual Nike Fall Classic on Sunday.
