Tuesday October 9, 2012

MAU (4-6-1) came back to tie in the 39th minute when Andrew Slade knocked in a corner kick, but less than a minute later, Tyler Carr blasted a shot past Cody for a 2-1 advantage.

Taylor Baker made it 3-1 for the Panthers in the 60th minute, but the Patriots wouldn’t give in as Abdul Sumalia scored off a Nathan Blue assist.

MAU continued to push forward for the tie, but couldn’t find the back of the net.

Cody had one save, while Hoosick Falls goalie Noah Choni made eight saves.
