Junior Rachidi Amadou led York College with two goals as the Cardinals shutout Sarah Lawrence College to win their season opener, 4-0, on Thursday.
York (1-0) completely dominated possession and out shot Sarah Lawrence, 41-1. As the final score reflected, the Cardinals scored early and often, ending with Brandon Yotagri’s unassisted goal in the final minute of play.
Amadou started the blazing offense when he scored in the 15th minute and just over a minute later Rohan Burrell added another goal for the Cardinals. In the second half York picked up where they left off when Amadou notched his second goal in the 67th minute.
With a positive start to the season the Cardinals are looking forward to their next match against United States Merchant Marine Academy on Saturday.
