Farmingdale, N.Y. - The Farmingdale State men's soccer team fell 3-2 today in a non-conference game against Plattsburgh State (4-0). The Rams (0-4) tied the game at 2-2 on a penalty kick by senior midfielder Brian Anderson (Massapequa, N.Y.) in the 62nd minute, but an own goal 15 minutes later would give the Cardinals the 3-2 victory.
Plattsburgh's junior forward Joe Aratari (Rochester, N.Y.) opened the scoring at 13:19 off a pass from sophomore defender Wade Goehle (Miller Place, N.Y.) for the 1-0 lead, before Farmingdale State freshman midfielder Victor Romero (Bay Shore, N.Y.) notched his first career goal to tie the game at 1-1.
That score would hold until the 58th minute when Goehle tallied an unassisted goal for the Cardinals, giving his team back the lead at 2-1.
Farmingdale State was awarded a penalty kick after a hand ball in the box by Plattsburgh, and Anderson was successful on his attempt, tying the game at 2-2 with 28:58 remaining to play.
The Rams would eventually fall 3-2, despite 12 saves from junior goalkeeper Angelo Viteritti (East Northport, N.Y.).
Farmingdale State will host Potsdam State on Sunday, September 9 at 11:00 a.m.
