In an exciting game filled with heavy competition, the Nyack Warriors took the Concordia College Clippers into sudden death overtime after the Clippers tied the game in the final 45 seconds of play. Sophomore Pablo Montes (Madrid, Spain) would break the tie, ending the game in favor of the Warriors.
How It Happened:
The Warriors returned with the same aggressive offensive strategy they have been working all season, producing 20 shots with 12 shots on goal. Nyack was able to score 3 goals despite the 9 saves Concordia keeper Ruel Gordon recorded. Sophomore Francois Legoedec (Etreville, France) led Nyack with 5 shots and 2 shots on goal. Legoedec was followed by sophomore Giovanni Galvano (Tappan, New York) with 4 shots as well as freshman Simon Kraemer (Wentorf, Germany) and sophomore Pablo Montes who recorded 3 shots each. Montes was also responsible for securing Nyack's victory in overtime with a goal off of a pass from Galvano across the field. Kraemer scored both of Nyack's goals in the second half of the game, both assisted by Legoedec. The team effort led to the Warriors victory over the Clippers.
The first half of the game featured competitive banter as the Warriors and the Clippers went shot for shot on goal, tallying 9 and 7 shots respectively. Concordia would be the first to score in the 38th minute off of a header by David McKenzie assisted by Javier Alvarez Vispo. The clock would expire for the first half with a score of 1-0 in favor of Concordia.
In the second half of the game the Warriors offense came to life with 10 shots, keeping the Clippers to a mere 2 shots. Kraemer would score his two goals in the 48th minute, off of a pass from the 25 yard from Legoedec, and again in the 80th minute, off of a pass from Legoedec inside the goal keeper box. This second goal broke the tie and brought the Warriors into the lead with a score of 2-1. Unfortunately, the Clippers Javier Alvarez Vispo would score in the final minute of play retying the game dictating the need for sudden death overtime. However, in the final 30 seconds of the clock, Vispo received his second yellow card of the night, mandating a red card and his removal from the match. The Clippers would enter sudden death one man down.
Concordia placed two shots in the first minute of overtime. The first shot was blocked by the Warrior defense while the second shot missed wide. Not long after, in the 92nd minute Montes would score the final goal of the night off a pass from Galvano across the field. His goal would bring sudden death, and the match, to a conclusion in favor of the Warriors with a final score of Nyack 3, Concordia 2.
