The Men's Soccer team faced Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference competitors, the Wilmington University Wildcats, in a home match Saturday, October 10th at 2:30pm. The Wildcats, currently ranked 1st in conference play, established an early lead against the Warriors. Despite the Warriors ability to tie the game in the first half, Wilmington broke the tie and maintained the lead for the remainder of the match.
How It Happened:
Freshman Simon Kraemer (Wentorf, Germany) led the Warriors offense, putting up Nyack's sole point on the scoreboard, also placing 2 shots, both of which were on goal, throughout the entire match. Five other Warriors, sophomores Storm Glautier (Stellenbosch, South Africa), Pablo Montes (Madrid, Spain), Francois Legoedec (Etreville, France), Reinaldo Sanchez (West New York, NJ) , and senior Toni Mutschler (Frankfurt Oder, Germany), matched Kraemer with 2 shots for the match, while Andrew Kupp added 1 shot of his own. Sanchez and Legoedec joined Kraemer earning 2 shots on goal of their 2 shots taken. Legoedec also notched an assist on Kraemers' goal. Freshman Wiktor Lasota (Lodz/Warsaw, Poland) earned 5 saves against the Wildcat offense only allowing 2 goals to score.
The first half saw matching offense between the Wildcats and the Warriors as each team put up 7 and 8 shots, respectively, resulting in a first period tie. Wilmington would score early in the game, at the 3rd minute, leaving the Warriors desperate to score. In the 30th minute after 6 shots being saved or blocked by the Wildcat defense, Kramer would score off of an assist from Legoedec tying the game. The score would remain tied through the expiration of the first half.
The second period began with an early goal against the Warriors in the 48th minute. Wilmington continued to press on the Warriors defense, taking 12 shots, 3 of which were saved by Lasota limiting the Wildcats to 1 goal for the half. Nyack was, unfortunately, unable to break through the Wildcat defensive line, producing only 5 shots for the second half. The clock would retire before the Warriors had a chance to tie the game, resulting in a final score of 2-1 in favor of the Wildcats.
