Cardinals fight to a victory on new field

The Plattsburgh State men’s soccer team came out and fought for its first victory on the new field Friday against New Paltz 2-0.

The Cardinals went through this game with a tale of two halves. During the first half, both teams were battling back and first with no goals scored by either. PSUC (7-4-1, 2-2 SUNYACs) was able to come out in the second half and score to goals to get the win.

The team was able to keep an even head during the game, where they were able to get back some players. One such player able to play in the game was Clay Sherman.

Sherman came back from injury and was able to score a goal during the second half.

“I have to give all the credit to my man Chris Bowden,” Sherman said. “Coach is always preaching use feet first and I was just in the right sport at the right time.”

The other goal for the team was scored by sophomore Alexis Archilla, moving him one step closer to the SUNYAC record with 10th goal of the season.

“The whole game I just been getting a lot of opportunities and a lot of chances and it was kind of frustrating at first with all those scoring opportunities,” Archilla said, “but I was kind of relived once I got that first goal in the second half, I was just happy.”

The Cards will next face off against Oneonta (10-0-2, 4-0-1 SUNYACs) Saturday at 1 p.m.

Head coach Chris Waterbury said the team needs to play with energy, intelligence and it is going to take a complete game to win against a strong Oneonta team.
