The Nyack College Women's Soccer team returned to their home field today hungry for a win after last Thursday's draw to NYIT. The Warriors faced the visiting Caldwell University Cougars in a CACC North Conference match at 4pm September 15. Both teams were looking to secure their first win of the season.
How It Happened:
Caldwell led with an impressive offense attacking the goal early and often throughout the match marking 22 shots with 11 shots on goal. In the first period, 10 of the Cougars shots were placed, with their first goal scored in the 28th minute. The Warriors were unable to respond with any shots against the Cougars net in the first period of the game. The period would close with a score of Caldwell 1, Nyack 0.
The second period began with an aggressive approach from senior Captain Brittany Cruz (Suffren, NY) with a shot on goal, just saved by Caldwell keeper Mary Kanzler, a mere 25 seconds into play. Caldwell answered Nyack's aggression with a goal in the 50th minute. Senior Krystal Vega (Anaheim Hills, CA) added her own shot on goal in the 50th minute also to be picked up by Kanzler. Sophomore keeper Jordan Jansen (Lafayette, New Jersey) was then able to add 2 saves to her stats as the Cougars placed 4 successive shots on goal in a 2 minute span.
The Warrior offense began to pick up speed as Vega, Cruz, sophomore Jessica Short (Tottenham, Canada), junior Katherine Oldfield (Bolton, England), and sophomore center back Rebekah Lawler(Lacey, NJ) all added their own shots and shots on goal as well. Despite the efforts of Jansen, who snagged 7 saves from the Cougars offensive line, 2 additional goals were scored in the 73rd and 81st minute of the second period.
Unfortunately, as the 90th minute closed, the match would remain a shutout for the Warriors with a final score of Caldwell 4 and Nyack 0. The Cougars would improve to a 1-4-0 record, earning their first win of the season, while the Warriors dropped to an overall record of 0-2-1.
The Warriors return to Moseley Field this Thursday, September 17, in a non-conference match against Queens College of New York. The clock starts at 3:30pm, come out and support your Warriors!
