An Athletic Milestone for Men's Soccer

Posted by Deborah.Walker on Tuesday November 22, 2005

The Men's Soccer team established an athletic milestone for Nyack by being the first of any Nyack team to advance to a national championship game. The Warriors competed against number one seeded Mid-Continent University of Kentucky, losing 2-1.  

Nate Rayl scored the first goal of the game to put Nyack on the scoreboard first and up 1-0. Mid-Continent got on the board with a little over 5 minutes left in the half to tie the game 1-1. Midway through the second half Mid-Continent scored what would be the game winning goal to go up 2-1. Nyack played hard and battled to the end as they played the game without all-conference player Tim Conway. Nyack also played the second half without another of their best players as Oswald Adu went down with a groin injury and could not stay on the field.

Three players, Dan Corti, Oswald Adu, and Andres Martinez, were named to the all-tournament team.

Congratulations, Warriors for a battle well fought.
