In a 5-0 victory over Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference competitor, the Golden Falcons of Felician College, the Warriors split 5 goals between 5 players; several of which marked two player's first goals of the season.    In addition to the first goals for two Warriors, freshman keeper Wiktor Lasota's (Lodz/Warsaw, Poland) earned his first shutout of his collegiate career with 4 saves.  The game also pushed the statistics for one Warrior into a 2nd place national ranking for assists per game.  Not only did the victory over Felician achieve all the aforementioned, it also propelled Nyack into a 3rd place standing in the CACC.

How It Happened

Sophomore Francois Legoedec (Etreville, France), who is currently ranked 2nd in the nation averaging 1.14 assists per game, aided the Warriors offense with an assist on 3 of the 5 goals.  Legoedec assisted 2 teammates in notching their 1st goals of the 2015 season and helped another teammate achieve his 3rd.  In addition to earning his season high assists, Legoedec led the Warriors with 5 shots and 2 shots on goal. 

Seniors Toni Mutschler (Frankfurt Oder, Germany) and Josh Schooch (Sparrowbush, New York) both earned their first goals of the 2015 season off of an assist from Legoedec in the 21st and 83rd minutes scoring Nyack's 2nd and 5th goals respectively.  Sophomore Orlando Benites (West New York, NJ) offered the only other assist for the Warriors aiding freshman Raul-Felipe Ferreira in tagging the Warriors first goal of the match.  Sophomore Storm Glautier (Stellenbosch, South Africa) bettered the Felician defense, with the help of teammates Legoedec and Mutschler, to score Nyack's 3rd goal of the match in the 63rd minute.  The 4th goal of the evening came from sophomore Samuel Viau's (Stormville, New York) attentive and aggressive offense as he intercepted a pass from between a Felician defender and their keeper to score in the 65th minute.

The two periods of play saw competitive play across the field with the Warriors outshooting the Golden Falcons by 2 shots; however, 11 of the Warriors 16 shots were on target as opposed to the Golden Falcon's 4.  The play was split evenly amongst the teams as no one team maintained sole control of the ball for longer than 10 minutes.  The Warriors combined efforts of the aggressive offense and solid defense dictated the victory in their favor and limited the Golden Falcons in their course of action.
