Playoff Pressure

Jays Defeat Mount Saint Vincent 3-0

BRONX, NY - With seven teams still alive and fighting for one of six Skyline Conference playoff spots, the NYU-Poly men's soccer team faced a must win against Mount Saint Vincent Thursday night. The Dolphins tried to play the spoiler, but a balanced team effort and timely scoring led to a 3-0 Fighting Blue Jays victory.

Sophomore Mamadou Dianko (Dakar, Senegal), junior Joe Gabor (Warwick, NY), and freshmen Adrian Hurtado (Deer Park, NY) all scored to give NYU-Poly it's 11th win of the season, a new school record. The Jays improve to 11-5-1 and 5-3 in the Skyline, while MSV falls to 3-5-3 overall and 2-4-2 in conference.

The win sets up a huge battle against Bard College on Saturday with the winner guaranteeing itself a playoff spot.  Both teams are tied for sixth place with 15 points, but a win could jump either team to as high as third. Both teams also have a game in hand. NYU-Poly will play Yeshiva next Thursday. With two wins, NYU-Poly could finish as high as second and receive a first round bye.
