UAlbany Soccer Upsets #3 Syracuse
The University at Albany men's soccer team upset third ranked Syracuse tonight on Bob Ford Field by the score of 2-1. This is the first time in school history Albany has knocked off a top-10 nationally ranked team.
The Great Danes scored their first goal just 3 minutes into the match off a put back from senior midfielder Leo Melgar.
Syracuse responded with 7:30 left in the first half off the foot of Kamal Miller after the sophomore put back his own rebound.
The game winner from UAlbany would come with just under 16 minutes left in the second half as a cross from redshirt senior Keith Traut found the foot of fellow senior Jonathan Interiano who buried the go ahead goal.
I spoke with head coach Trevor Gorman immediately following the upset and the coach in his 6th season told me it was "the biggest non conference win in program history." The Danes have played Syracuse tough each of the last two years, losing 2-1 on both occasions. Tonight the defending America East regular season champs got over the hump.
UAlbany's next contest is this Friday as they take on Vermont at home at 7pm.
