Logan Bielawski converted a penalty kick to give Averill Park a 2-1 lead, but on the ensuing kick off, Remancus fired a long distance shot that eluded Averill Park goalkeeper Eric Jeschke to knot the score at 2-2.

Thomas Hacker tallied in the first half for Averill Park, and Nick DePaulo scored on a penalty kick for Colonie’s first goal midway through the second half.
