Sports Recap (10/2)

On Monday, 9/24, our Knights played host to HVAL opponent and rival, Poughkeepsie Day School. During the game, there were many opportunities for our offensive players to score on PDS, but their goalie proved to be better than most we have faced so far. PDS won the game by the score of 3-1 but the Most Valuable Player of the game was Cadet Mickey Urso. He showed pure skill, determination, and great character leading his teammates. Other notable players included cadets Jeannot Basima, Remy Sykes, and Alvin Lukose.
On Wednesday, 9/26, the Knights traveled to Chase Collegiate in Connecticut. NYMA lost by the score of 0-7 but had a strong effort from a number of cadets including Mickey Urso and Jeannot Basima. Despite the score, senior goalie Bill He continued to show improvement and had a couple of big saves. The Knights are back in action on Saturday, 9/28 at home versus HVAL opponent, Marvelwood, at 3:00 pm.
Cross Country was off from competition this week due to weather-related issues. It was a very wet week and made some of the courses dangerous for the runners. They will be back in action next Wednesday for an HVAL Invitational at Storm King (2:30pm Course Walk, 3:15 pm Start) and then again on Saturday as they head to Darrow (3:15 Course Walk, 3:45 pm Start) for another HVAL Invitational. Darrow is a later start due to the SAT exam scheduled for next Saturday morning. Go Knights!
