Women's soccer was unable to secure a victory against Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference competitor, the Chargers of Dominican College.  The Chargers claimed the match with a 2-0 victory over the Warriors.  The competition marked the final game of the 2015 campaign for both the Warriors and the Chargers.

How It Happened:

The Warriors offense was able to put up 10 shots against the Dominican College Chargers, earning 5 shots on goal, throughout 90 minutes of play.  Freshman Vanessa Séfriou (Quebec, Canada) led the Warriors with 3 shots for the evening landing 2 on target.  Sophomores' Jessica Short (Tottenham, Canada) and Lauren Rygus (Mississauga, Canada) were close behind her, rallying with 2 shots and 1 shot on goal each.  The rest of Nyack's attempts to score were split between sophomore Rebekah Lawler (Lacey, NJ), senior Brittany Cruz (Suffren, NY), and freshman Sabrina Perri (Lagrangeville ,NY), who would log Nyack's final shot on goal for the match. 

The first period of play saw even efforts from the Warriors and the Chargers with 4 and 3 shots taken respectively.  The Warriors were up against a tough defensive line, receiving 3 corner kicks for the half, as well as 9 total fouls called between the two teams in the first period alone.  Dominican recorded 2 saves against the Warrior offense while Nyack's defense earned 1 save.  Unfortunately, the Chargers were able to score twice in the first half, once in the 14th minute and again in the 21st.  The first half would expire with a score of 2-0 for the Chargers.

The Warriors turned up their intensity for the second half taking 6 shots in comparison to the Charger's 1.  The Chargers were unable to gain any further opportunities to score due to Nyack's defensive line.  Dominican was forced to sustain their lead on defense alone, earning 3 saves through the second period preventing Nyack from scoring, tying, or taking the lead.  The final match of the 2015 campaign would conclude in favor of the Chargers with a score of 2-0.
