It only lasted two minutes after Moulid Somow (Utica, NY) found Windster for the tie (2-2) in the 34<sup>th</sup>, giving Somow both assists in the half.</p> <p>The momentum stayed with Herkimer in the second half with three unanswered goals to put the game out of reach by the 83rd.

Aragon, who is only three wins away from 300 (297-27-14), is coming off a 17-1 record in 2013 capturing the program’s 10<sup>th</sup> overall national championship and third in the last three seasons. It’s the second time the program has accomplished the feat, doing it when Perry Nizzi was leading the Generals in 1994, 1995 and 1996.</p> <p>Aragon was unable to make it four consecutive national championship in his first year as head coach in 1997, finishing in second place in the national tournament, but will look to change that this fall. “I am very excited about the 2014 season as we play in proud honor of our captain Peter McAvoy,” said Aragon. “Not only will we be playing for Pete, but our past two senior classes who played with him will do as well!”</p> <p>McAvoy died in his dorm room last April (2014) as a result of acute viral myocarditis. He helped Herkimer to consecutive championships in 2012 and 2013. Ironically, McAvoy wore jersey #4 his two years at Herkimer, making a fourth consecutive championship more dramatic than the first attempt in 1997. </p> Thu, 28 Aug 2014 00:00:00 -0400 http://www.herkimer.edu/explore/herkimer-news/v/676/herkimer-mens-soccer-ranked-no-1-in-njcaa-preseason American Red Cross Blood Drive http://www.herkimer.edu/explore/herkimer-news/v/674/american-red-cross-blood-drive <p><strong>August 27, 2014</strong></p><p>Herkimer College is hosting an American Red Cross Blood Drive on Thursday, September 11 from 10:30 am – 3:30 pm.
