The Penn State New Kensington men’s soccer team is off to a strong start in conference play. After dropping its first Penn State University Athletic Conference match to Penn State Greater Allegheny, the Lions have won three in a row. Sophomore Andrew Perenic had his hand in two of the game-winning goals, tallying the assist in the game-winner against Penn State York and then scoring the first goal in a 2-0 victory over Penn State Hazleton. During the streak, freshmen Brady Braun, Nolan Johngarlo and Ben Midlik have each scored twice.
