NEW PALTZ, N.Y. – The Lehman College men got back on the winning track on Saturday by defeating Bard College, 1-0, in extratime, at SUNY New Paltz’s South Turf Field.

After a scoreless 90 minutes of regulation and Lehman outshooting Bard, 14-6 (12-5 on goal), the game went into extratime. The match was decided three minutes in when junior forward Maissa Dieye headed home the game-winner, off a corner kick from freshman midfielder Jason Tinoco.
Lehman junior goalkeeper Chris Mulholland had five saves for Lehman to earn his second clean sheet this season.
