The New York men's and women's soccer teams were swept by Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences this past Saturday.

The men's teams began the day with sophomore midfielder Daisei Hiwaki scoring on a direct kick from about 20 yards out to give the Knights the early 1-0 lead in the first half. The Knights would fail to convert on several more chances before the end of the half with the wind at their back that would prove costly later.

The Albany Panthers would quickly erase the deficit in the second half with only four minutes gone past on a shot to the left post. The teams would remain tied through regulation as well as for all but thirty seconds remaining in the first overtime when the Panthers would steal the ball deep in Knights territory and ricochet a shot off the left goal post to win the match 2 to 1. The loss drops the Knights back to .500 on the season at 7-7-1 and marks their first conference loss of the season. The team is now 3-1 in conference play.

The women next entertained the Panthers in the afternoon and had to start facing the heavy winds at Aviator yet managed to get through the first half only down 3-0 with the Panthers scoring two of those goals on corner kicks aided by the wind. The Panthers would score three more times in the second half for the 6-0 win. The loss dropped the Lady Knights to 0-3-1 on the season.

Both teams return to action this Wednesday.
