After a competitive battle between Nyack and Goldey-Beacom the final score would boil down to a sudden death overtime finish, leaving the Warriors without a victory.

How It Happened:
Freshman Simon Kraemer (Wentorf, Germany) took the majority of Nyack's 21 shots for the evening with 8, landing all 8 shots on goal. He was also responsible for all 3 Warrior goals for the match.  Kraemer was joined by teammates sophomores Reinaldo Sanchez (West New York, NJ) and Francois Legoedec (Etreville, France) with 3 shots, sophomore Pablo Montes (Madrid, Spain) and senior Mathias Wenger (Rostock, Germany) with 2 shots, and freshmen Ralph Nicholson (Allendale, New Jersey), Finn Reese (Hamburg, Germany), and  senior Toni Mutschler (Frankfurt Oder, Germany) each with 1 shot.   Freshman keeper Wiktor Lasota (Lodz/Warsaw, Poland) recorded 8 saves out of 12 shots on goal, allowing Goldey-Beacom to earn 4 goals against the Warriors.

GBC initiated play with an early goal in the 6th minute, establishing the lead of the game.  The Warriors refused to allow GBC to maintain control of the ball earning 2 corner kicks and placing 3 shots on goal before Kraemer would score, assisted by Legoedec, in the 19th minute earning his 7th goal of the 2015 season tying the game.  Unsatisfied with simply a tie, Montes set Kraemer up to chip a goal in over the keepers head, in the 19th minute, taking the lead.  Shortly thereafter in the 27th minute, GBC would respond with a goal of their own retying the match at 2-2.  The next 18 minutes of play saw action on both net as each team was determined to take charge of the scoreboard, however, the clock would run out with the score still standing at 2-2.

Another early goal for GBC set the tone of the second period as they broke the tie directly off of a corner kick in the 50th minute.  Quick to answer was Kraemer who earned his 9th goal of the season off of a penalty kick in the 55th minute.  The period would continue with the Warriors and GBC taking and blocking shots evenly, each earning 9 shots for the half.  GBC's defense would earn 5 saves against the Warriors offense as well as earning additional blocks from defenders.  Despite the valiant efforts to score, the opportunities were limited as defensive lines and time restrictions prevented either team from breaking the tie.

The teams moved into the first round of overtime with fervor.  Nyack earned 2 corner kicks in the first few minutes of play and placed 2 shots against the GBC defense.  Unfortunately, GBC would earn the tie breaking goal in the 96th minute, stopping the clock, and bringing the game to a conclusion.  The final score would remain Goldey-Beacom 4, Nyack 3.
