The New York men's soccer team survived a lackluster performance to edge rejuvenated conference opponent Sarah Lawrence College 2-1 in double overtime.

The Knights dominated possession early and sophomore midfielder Daisei Hiwaki struck a loose ball in the Sarah Lawrence penalty box beating the keeper in the inside post to give the Knights a 1-0 lead.

The Knights failed to take advantage to extend the lead in the first half and the Gryphons opened the second half by quickly capitalizing on a defensive error after a wayward clearance by sophomore keeper Camilo Montes in the Berkeley goal, to equalize from 25 yards out. Berkeley responded with a fury, but failed to convert on several opportunities.

Sarah Lawrence was given a golden chance to seal the victory in the 67th minute, but was stopped on a penalty kick by Montes. Berkeley kept failing to convert chances until the second overtime period when sophomore midfielder Joel Yawili managed to find the net for the victory.

The win puts the Knights over the .500 mark for the first time this season at 7-6-1 and maintains their undefeated conference record at 4-0. A mark that will be sorely tested by Albany Pharmacy on Saturday. Albany comes into the match at 6-2-1 and 3-0 in the conference.
