The Knights women’s soccer team earned a hard-fought 2-1 double-overtime victory on the road against the host Nyack Warriors last week to move to 4-1-1 in the 2012 season.
Queens controlled the early going Sept. 17 and created good goal-scoring opportunities for forwards Janine Guerra and Nicolette Scrozzo, neither of whom was able to capitalize. Nyack picked up some momentum halfway through the first half, but was stopped by solid play from Knights defensemen Lisa Cassata and Bernadette Wyndham. The game remained 0-0 at half-time.
The Nyack Warriors would untie things at 62:17 in the second half with a goal by Stacey Cervantes from inside the box. The Knights knotted things up with less than 10 minutes remaining when senior Sarah Boucher put a rebound off the post and into the net to tie the game. With the game tied 1-1 at the end of regulation, the teams headed into overtime.
Though neither team scored in the first overtime, Nicolette Scrozzo sealed the deal for Queens College in the second, when she rounded the keeper and slid the ball home to secure the Knights’ victory.
