Women’s soccer won against Suny Erie by a single point on Saturday, ending the game 2-1.

The women’s soccer team won a very close shootout with Mohawk Valley in a tough away game this past Wednesday.

To kick off the game, sophomore individual studies major Susannah Frisch scored the first goal of the game with only 2 minutes, 22 seconds into the first half.
37 minutes, 44 seconds into the game, Mohawk Valley tied up the score 1-1, sending them into the second half.

Not too long into the second half, sophomore Anna Colarusso, an individual studies major, scored the next goal, giving Hudson Valley a 2-1 lead. It didn’t take long for Mohawk to score again, as they tied the game 2-2.

Freshman Sydney Metzold, also an individual studies major, gave Hudson Valley the lead again, as she scored and moved the game to 3-2. The shoot-out had yet to slow down, as Mohawk tied it up once again, making the score 3-3.

Finally, to close out the game, Metzold scored her second goal with 14 minutes, 5 seconds left in the game. Hudson Valley secured the win, 4-3.

Hudson Valley’s men’s soccer team also faced Mohawk Valley that same day, but it wasn’t as much of a shoot-out as the women’s soccer match.

Exactly 15 minutes into the game, freshman Carl Kernochan, an architecture technology major, scored the first goal, giving Hudson Valley the lead, 1-0. Then, last week’s NJCAA Player of the Week, Garrett Axtmann, scored the next goal exactly 10 minutes after the first goal, moving the score up 2-0.

Kernochan put another point on the board in the first half, 35 minutes in, moving this potential blowout up to 3-0, sending them into the second half. Mohawk scored near the beginning of the second half, finally putting themselves on the board, 3-1.

Hudson Valley earned a penalty kick and gave the opportunity to sophomore liberal arts major Ryan Euell. He took full advantage of it, scored and moved Hudson Valley up 4-1. Mohawk scored the final goal of the game, handing the Vikings a 4-2 victory.

This past Saturday, the men’s and women’s soccer teams also both went head to head with Erie Community College. While the men’s team had a devastating loss of 3-2 in the final minutes, the women dominated the the nation’s top-ranked team 4-2.

All three Viking goals were made in the first period of the two-hour game. Ethan Thomas sent a cross over the middle and Euell connected with a header, in addition to a conversion of a penalty kick by Axtmann.

Then, in the final minute, Erie scored with Justus Hoffmann sending a header from Collin O’Keefe’s free kick leaving, the Vikings no time to make a comeback.

On the other hand, the women’s team was able to hold Erie to only one score from early in the first period. In goal for the Vikings the entire game was freshman Kaitlin Nadeau, in individual studies major, with a total of 13 saves.

Hudson Valley’s goals came from freshman radiology major, Madison Pinzer, who sent a cross pass to the middle of the box and Kerri VanAusdle, a freshman individual studies major, connected with the header, tying the game in the first period.

The Vikings broke the tie with just over 12 minutes remaining when Kats’ player Sydney Buhrke sent a pass that found Frisch.
