Nyack Women's Soccer travelled to face last year's #2 seed in the NCAA Div. II East Region, Mercy College, on Saturday, September 19th in a non-conference match at 12pm.  After a long week of competition within the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference, the Warriors were eager to secure a win, but fell short to the Mavs by a final score of 8-0.  

How It Happened:
Mercy College approached the match with an average of 17 shots per game and continued in their statistical pattern.  The game began with 10 shots from Mercy College, allowing sophomore keeper Jordan Jansen (Lafayette, NJ) to record 2 saves all within the first 10 minutes of play.  In the 11th minute Mercy College would break the Warrior wall scoring their first goal, soon to be followed in the 14th minute with their second goal.  In the next five minutes of play, Jansen would record 2 more saves out of 3 shots before Mercy landed their 3rd goal of the match in the 19th minute.

The proceeding 25 minutes of play saw similar action at the Warrior goal with 7 more shots and 3 more saves for Jansen.  The Warriors offense came through in the 27th and 28th minute with 2 shots by freshmen Julianna Kranes (Montgomery, NY) and Vanessa Séfriou (Quebec, Canada).  Kranes' shot was blocked while Vanessa Sefriou's hit the post.  The first half would conclude with a score of 3-0 in favor of Mercy College.

The second half began with the Mavericks scoring their 4th goal of the match within 30 seconds of play, quickly followed by their 5th goal 13 seconds later.  Jansen would record another 2 saves in the next 10 minutes of play before Mercy scored another goal for the match in the 58th minute.  Mercy would then place another 4 shots on goal, 3 of which would count as saves for Jansen, before scoring their 7th goal in the 70th minute.  Mercy would score their final goal for the match in the 75th minute and Jansen would record her second season high of 11 saves for the match.  The Warriors were unable to respond with a shot outside of the first period leaving the final score as 8-0 in favor of the Mavericks.
