New Paltz tops El­lenville

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - SPORTS - Free­man staff

An­to­nio Al­varez scored two goals for New Paltz Mon­day, in­clud­ing the game-win­ner with two min­utes left in reg­u­la­tion, to lift the Huguenots to a 3-2 non­league boys soc­cer win over El­lenville High.

Fer­nando Cuel­lar as­sisted on both of Al­varez’s goals.

Wes Cruz set up Ro­man Hrynovets with a score, then tal­lied him­self off a Justin Guil­iano pass to give (8-7) El­lenville the half­time lead.

Eli­jah Ta­marchenko’s free kick tied it for New Paltz early into the sec­ond half.

“Ever see the movie ‘Ground­hog’s Day’?” El­lenville coach Maxwell Mead re­marked.

“We had chance af­ter chance af­ter chance to go up 3-, 4-, 5-1. Wasted all of them.

We showed a lot of char­ac­ter to re­spond to go­ing down 0-1 and turned the game around quickly.

How­ever, we did not put them away when should have and they made us pay.

An­other late goal on a de­fen­sive lapse.”

Both teams used two goal­keep­ers.

Daniel Drewnowski and Wes­ley Mize com­bined for nine saves for New Paltz, while Chris­tian Stine­hour and Daniel Ma­hany com­bined for three saves for the Blue Devils.
