Soccer teams winless over weekend; final home games this week

The Vermont Tech Men's and women's soccer teams were on the road this past weekend in both Boston and New York.  On Friday, October 4th, both teams  traveled to Fisher College in Boston. The women played a tough game, and ended up losing to Fisher College 6 – 1. The Lady Knights lone goal was scored by Freshman Emily Amazeen of Northwood, NH.

The men's team also lost a heartbreaker to Fisher College 5 – 4,  despite having a 4 – 2 lead during the game. Bryan Cole had a hat trick (3 goals) to lead Vermont Tech for the day. Joaquin Currier-Cuber scored the Knights other goal.

On Sunday, October 6th the weary Knights were on the road again. This time they traveled to Paul Smiths College in the Adirondacks of New York.  The lady knights took their second loss of the weekend to Paul Smiths under rainy conditions.   Pauls Smiths outscored the Lady Knights 3 – 0 in the first half.

Then Vermont Tech got things going in the second half and scored a well worked goal off of a free-kick. Emily Amazeen played a ball to Emily Darling ( So, Groton, VT) who found the corner of the Paul Smith's goal with a clinical finish. While the Lady kinghts put out a great effort in the second half, Paul Smiths tied up the half with another goal as well, for a  final score of 4 - 1.

The Vermont Tech men kicked off immediately following the ladies game, and the rain continued. The field was heavy and it was difficult to play under the conditions. Paul Smiths scored in the 38th minute from a direct kick. Vermont Tech goalkeeper Darian Calverley, a Sophomore from Attleboro, MA, got a hand on the shot, but unfortunately could not make the save. From there on it was a physical battle. The score at half time was 1 – 0 in favor of Paul Smiths.
The Vermont Tech Knights got the tying goal late in the second half as Oliver Durand tucked the ball into the net after Paul Smith's  goalkeeper miss-handled the ball on a cross from Brigham Reese.  The game finished tied at 1 – 1 for the full 90 minutes.  Vermont Tech netminder Darian Calverley made 19 saves in the game.
Two - 10 minute sudden death 'Golden Goal' overtime periods would decide the winner. Within minutes of the first period, Paul Smiths scored a miraculous goal to end the game with a final score 2 – 1 in favor of Paul Smiths.

The remaining games for the Knights in the regular season are this week on Tuesday, October 8 at 3:45 PM against NHTI for the men, and on Wednesday, October 9th at 3:345pm for the women.

Both game are at our home field in Randolph Center, VT
