Nyack College Men's Soccer battled the Caldwell University Cougars in each team's first Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference competition Wednesday afternoon. The Warriors would emerge victorious capturing their first win of conference play and the 2015 campaign by a final score of 3-2.
How It Happened:
Sophomore Storm Glautier (Stellenbosch, South Africa) was responsible for two out of Nyack's three goals; also marking the first two goals of his collegiate career. Glautier's success was made possible by the efforts of teammates senior Toni Mutschler (Frankfurt Oder, Germany) and sophomore Francois Legoedec (Etreville, France). Sophomore Samuel Viau (Stormville, New York) would add an unassisted goal to the Warriors scoreboard off of a kick from the goal keeper. The game was packed with 22 shots and 9 shots on goal from the Warriors offense, leaving little room for the Cougars to make any offensive advances.
Caldwell began the game scoring a goal in the 1st minute off of a corner kick. This, however, did not set the tone for the first period. The Warriors did not let the early advances of the Cougars dictate their offensive strategy. The two teams battled, alternating shots on goal back and forth through the entire first 45 minutes of play. The first period would end with a score of Caldwell 1, Nyack 0.
The Warriors erupted from the locker room ready for the second half of play and placed 4 shots on goal within the first five minutes of play. Caldwell keeper Michael Hartmann was able to save 2 shots within 30 seconds of each other, but was unable to block sophomore Storm Glautier's shot, assisted by Toni Mutschler, in the 50th minute tying the game. Caldwell was unable to answer with a single shot for the next fifteen minutes of game play.
After Caldwell's Joaquin Escudero missed wide in the 75th minute, Viau was able to receive the kick from the goal keeper and score from 25 yards out just eight seconds later. Twelve seconds after Viau's goal, Glautier was able to record his second goal of the night off of a pass from Legoedec. The Cougars scored again in the 87th minute of play after 2 more shots produced by the Warriors. The clock would run out with a final score of Caldwell 2, Nyack 3.
Men's Soccer will be back in action Tuesday, September 22nd, at 4pm with another home CACC match against Concordia College. Come out and support your Warriors!
