Mike Rodriguez tallied the game-winning goal in the 84th minute, to give the Hornets a 2-1 overtime victory against Hendrick Hudson.
“We were fighting all game and looking for a goal to bring us back into the game,” Rodriguez said. “My teammate Bryan Jaramillo gets us a tying goal with around 20 minutes left in the second half and after he scored, I knew we could win the game. Then in overtime we got the penalty and I stepped up and wanted that goal. It felt unbelievable when that ball hit the back of the net. It still feels unreal but we fought and we got the win.”
Rodriguez assisted on Jaramillo’s goal with Ciraco making 5 saves.
