In their final regular season game of the 2015 campaign, the Warriors faced the Eagles of Post University in a heartbreaking double overtime loss.  The game was filled with tie and tie breakers occurring in the final minutes of play, but, unfortunately, sudden death would prevent the Warriors from earning the victory.


How It Happened:
The Warriors had 11 out of their 18 shots land on goal for the match forcing Post keeper Jon Hanlon to garner 8 saves.   Freshmen Finn Reese (Hamburg, Germany), Simon Kraemer (Wentorf, Germany), and sophomore Francois Legoedec (Etreville, France) would each add 3 shots against the Eagles with Kraemer and Legoedec taking 2 shots on goal and Reese adding 1.  Sophomores Reinaldo Sanchez (West New York, NJ) and Samuel Viau (Stormville, NY) would each tally 2 shots and 1 goal for the match, while Kraemer added the 3rd goal.

Post would score early in the first period of play, the 8th minute, earning the first goal of the match.  The Warriors managed to take their first shots by the 15th minute, breaking through the Eagles defense with 2 back to back shots on goal forcing Post to keep their lead with 2 saves within seconds of each other.  The Warriors systematically kept the ball down by the Post goal for the next seven minutes of play until Post earned a corner kick leading to a header shot that freshman keeper Wiktor Lasota (Lodz/Warsaw, Poland)  would save.  The teams exchanged shots until the 32nd minute when Sanchez would score after Legoedec's shot hit the crossbar.  Immediately following the goal, Nyack was issued a yellow card and Post would break the tie, all within the 32nd minute.  The half would conclude with a score of 2-1 in the favor of Post.

Kraemer earned a penalty kick for the Warriors in the 1st minute of play for the second half, tying the game once again.  The teams evenly split control of the ball until Post would break the tie in the 69th minute.  The Warriors were determined to score and outshot the Eagles with nearly 2 shots for every 1 Post could manage.  The clock was ticking away, but Legoedec managed to assist Viau in achieving a header shot to tie the game in the 88th minute.  The second half would expire with the score remaining a 3-3 tie, forcing the Eagles and the Warriors to enter sudden death overtime.

Tensions ran high through overtime and 5 fouls were called and 3 yellow cards were issued.  Nyack took 2 out of the 3 shots that occurred in the 10 minutes of play, but was unable to manufacture a goal.  A second round of sudden death overtime would be required.  The second round ended as quickly as it began as the Eagles were able to score just 2 minutes into play.  Their goal dictated the conclusion of the match with a 4-3 finish in favor of the Eagles.
