NEW PALTZ, N.Y. – The story remained the same in the battle of undefeated teams on Tuesday afternoon as the State University of New York at New Paltz (3-0-4) and visiting Bard (4-0-3) played to a scoreless, 0-0 double-overtime draw at South Turf Field.
The Hawks outshot the Raptors 12-5 on the day, registering six shots on goal, as senior Kevin Alfaro (Bay Shore, NY/Brentwood), junior Gino Scardino (West Hempstead, NY/H. Frank Carey) and junior Ben Zilka (Levittown, NY/General Douglas MacArthur) all tallied two shots apiece to lead the New Paltz attack. New Paltz held a 6-1 advantage in corner kicks as well.
