Brooklyn Loses Another Heartbreaker, Falling To York 2-1 In Double OT
Jamaica, NY---The Brooklyn College Men's Soccer Team played well through much of the day at York College in today's conference showdown, but once again the team dropped a contest by the slimmest of margins, 2-1, as the Cardinals got a "golden goal" from Rachidi Amadou just 12 seconds into the game's second overtime.
The win was York's first of the season, improving their overall record to 1-9 and 1-2 in CUNYAC play, while BC, winless on the season, fell to 0-6, 0-3.
"This was a very disappointing result," said Bulldogs' Head Coach Rawle Hensford. "After having dominated play late into regulation and extra time, but failing to capitalize on many opportunities, we paid the price for a momentary lapse. We will keep working hard and look to get a "W" on the board in our next game."
Amadou received a pass just seconds into the second overtime period and launched a shot from 20 yards out, burying it into the top right corner of the goal.
The play was crushing for the Bulldogs, who have now lost five games this season by just one score, including two in a second overtime period.
York, who outshot Brooklyn 26-21, got the scoring started early in the first half, as an Amadou cross was headed in by freshman Phillippe Sainvil.
Brooklyn got in the scoring column in the 29th minute as Steven Favaloro converted on a penalty kick after the Cardinals were called for a handball in the box.
The second half and first overtime period went scoreless, but both teams had chances as both had shots that struck the crossbar.
Brooklyn will look to get in the win column on Monday as they host Purchase College at 4:30 pm at the Kingsborough Community College Field.
