The Women's Soccer team captured their first win of the 2015 campaign in a 1-0 decision against the Concordia College Clippers. Not only was the game the first win of the season for the Warriors, but it was also a Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference match, increasing the Warriors standings in conference play.
How It Happened:
The Warriors defense contributed largely to the conference win this afternoon. The Clippers were limited to 6 shots throughout the entire 90 minutes of play landing 0 shots on goal. The aggressive maneuvers of the defense helped to secure the victory for Nyack as the Clippers defense was equally iron clad. The Warriors outshot the Clippers with 11 shots, but were limited to landing only 2 shots on goal. Clippers keeper Samantha Street recorded the lone save of the match, but was unable to stop sophomore Jessica Short's (Tottenham, Canada) shot in the 67th minute allowing Nyack to claim the victory.
Nyack and Concordia's offense were on par with one another throughout the first period of play, recording 4 and 3 shots respectively. Nyack's offense leapt at every opportunity given and several close plays were made in the keeper's box. One such play sent a Warrior tumbling over Street's shoulder as both players fought for control of the play. The first period would retire with a tie score of 0-0.
The second half began with all activity occurring in the Clippers end of the field. Sophomore Rebekah Lawler (Lacey, NJ) placed two shots and was joined by junior Melanie Garcia (Queens, NY), with 1 shot, in the first ten minutes of play. By the 57th minute Concordia was able to break away and place their first shot of the half. The next shot would not emerge until the 67th minute when Short would secure the sole goal of the game off of an assist by junior Katherine Oldfield (Bolton, England). Concordia would only add 2 more shots for the remainder of the match while Nyack would total 7 shots for the half. As the clock ran out the score remained in favor of the Warriors: 1-0.
The Warriors will return to Moseley field Saturday, September 26th, in another CACC match against the Georgian Court Lions at 12pm. Come support both Men and Women's soccer teams as the Men will take the field at 2:30pm as well!
