#15 ASA Falls In Epic Season Finale
NEW ROCHELLE, NY --- The #15 ASA Men's Soccer team completed the greatest season in program history just one win shy of their first District tournament.
The Avengers fought valiantly, but fell 1-0 in overtime to Monroe College on Saturday night in New Rochelle.
ASA and Monroe played an evenly matched contest throughout regulation, with defense being the theme of the match. Sophomore goalkeeper Angel Cordero played exceptionally well for the Avengers, making several incredible saves during the first 90 minutes of the game.

- 12-2-2 overall record, a program-record and nine-win increase from 2011
- 3-1 Region XV record, T-1st and program-record
