In their first tie of the 2015 campaign, Nyack Men's Soccer homecoming match against the Philadelphia University Rams came to a draw at 1-1 after two scoreless overtime periods. The tie moves the Warriors record to 5-4-1, or 4-3-1 in conference play.
How It Happened:
The Warriors put up 12 shots against the Rams, 4 of which were on goal, scoring once in the second half to break the Rams hold on the scoreboard. Junior Andrew Kupp (Egg Harbor City, New Jersey) led the Warriors offense with 4 shots, 1 on goal, and 1 goal for the match. Close behind him was freshman Finn Reese (Hamburg, Germany) with 3 shots and sophomore Samuel Viau (Stormville, New York) with 2 shots, both of which were on goal. Sophomore Francois Legoedec (Etreville, France) earned 2 shots for the match and tallied the assist on the Warriors one goal. Senior Mathias Wenger (Rostock, Germany) wrapped up the Warriors offense with 1 shot, on goal, against the Rams goal. Freshman defender Wiktor Lasota (Lodz/Warsaw, Poland) allowed 1 goal for the match earning 5 saves against Philadelphia's offense.
Despite both goals being scored in separate periods, they happened within minutes of play. After a scoreless first period with the Rams and Warriors earning 3 and 4 shots respectively, with each goalie tallying 1 save, Philadelphia would earn an unassisted goal just 4 seconds before the half expired. Kupp would answer for the Warriors in the 46th minute, just one minute into second period play, earning a goal off of an assist from Legoedec. Each team was desperate to take the lead for the rest of the half, but came against impenetrable defensive lines. Only 2 shots reached the goal line for the Warriors, both of which were saved by Lasota. The clock would expire with the scoreboard remaining in a tie mandating the progression into sudden death overtime.
The first round of overtime saw each team take one shot on goal with each goalie earning a save. After 10 scoreless minutes the teams had to advance to a second round of sudden death overtime. Philadelphia University turned up their offense earning 3 shots, in comparison to the Warriors 2. Lasota prevented 2 shots from scoring as the clock would tick away again without a point being scored from either side. The final score would remain a tie, 1-1.
The Warriors will travel this week to face Bloomfield College at 7pm on Tuesday, October 20th. Stay tuned for more information about this Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference match!
