After breaking two ties in the first half of the game against Wilmington University, Nyack was unable to continue the score busting trend losing 4-2 at the final buzzer.

How It Happened:
Wilmington University's sophomore Loran Wyrough would score all four of the Wildcat's goals against the Warriors with the final point earning her 10th goal of the 2015 campaign. Wyrough's first goal was scored early on in the 4th minute of play.  Refusing to allow the Warriors to face a shutout junior Katherine Oldfield, assisted by freshman Vanessa Séfriou, scored Nyack's first goal of the match, tying the game, off of her sole shot of the day.  When Wyrough broke the tie in the 41st minute, senior Krystal Vega chipped her own goal just two minutes later retying the game, off of a deflection from the goalkeeper and an assist by sophomore Rebekah Lawler.  The first period would conclude tied at 2-2.

Wilmington came into the second half determined to break the tie, but the Warriors would not cave.  Sophomore keeper Jordan Jansen saved 2 shots, one of which was a penalty kick, securing the tie.  Lawler would break the Wildcat's control of the field adding a shot on goal in the 58thminute.  Lawler would record Nyack's three shots on the Wildcat goal for the entire second half.  Unfortunately, Wyrough would score twice on the Warriors before the clock would expire bringing the final score to 4-2 in favor of the Wilmington Wildcats.

The Warriors held their own against 4th in conference Wilmington University.  Due to the efforts from Lawler, Oldfield, Sefriou, and Vega, the Warriors were able to produce 10 shots with 5 shots on goal, 2 assists and 2 goals.  Jansen earned 6 saves out of 10 shots on goal against the Wildcats.  The Warriors were able to score for the first time since their match against NYIT, breaking an 8 game shutout streak.
