The Warriors came up short against the University of New Haven (UNH) Chargers Wednesday afternoon at Kayo Field in West Haven, CT.  Through a tough 90 minutes of play, Nyack was able to place 8 shots, as well as 2 shots on goal, but was unable to match UNH's 3 goals.

How It Happened:

Nyack took the field with freshman Wiktor Lasota (Lodz/Warsaw, Poland) making his third appearance in the goal, protected by a strong line of defenders.  The Warriors offense took the field by charge with sophomore Samuel Viau (Stormville, New York) narrowly missing a shot on goal high in the 2nd minute.  Soon to follow in the 11th minute was sophomore Giovanni Galvano (Tappan, New York) with a shot on goal saved by UNH keeper Stephen Sasso.  Galvano would record another close shot on goal in the 17th minute hitting the post.  Sophomore Pablo Montes (Madrid, Spain) would join the aggressive offensive front, adding his own shot on goal in the 31st minute just missing wide.  While the offense was attacking the UNH goal line fiercely, UNH was able to record two goals in the 34th and 42nd minutes despite Lasota's save in the 14th minute of the game.  The first half concluded with a score of UNH 2 Nyack 0.

The second half began with the same intense offensive approach, seen from the Warriors in the first half, with senior Mathias Wenger (Rostock, Germany) adding a header shot on goal missing high in the 46th minute.  UNH combated the Warriors offensive approach by rapidly taking three shots on goal in the 51st, 52nd, and 59th minute, allowing for Lasota to record a second save for the game.  Galvano responded with another shot on goal, picked up again by Sasso, in the 64th minute.  He was joined by teammate's freshman Simon Kraemer (Wenorf, Germany) and sophomore Francois Legoedec (Etreville, France) with shots missed high and wide in the 68th and 76th minute respectively.  UNH would add three more shots on goal before the completion of the match, scoring a goal in the 89th minute.  Their final goal would bring the match to a concluding score of University of New Haven 3 –Nyack 0.
