COLONIE — Guilderland stunned CBA in the final regular season game of the Suburban Council season on Friday, Nov. 13, by coming back from a 2-0 deficit to win the game 3-2 on a Bugra Karaca goal in the 78th minute.
CBA was 8-1 heading into the game and took a 2-0 lead into the half under the lights at Afrim’s Sports Park on two goals by standout Jordan Proulx.
Guilderland got on the board in the 61st minute on a goal by Illia Tyrkus and tied it up five minutes later on a goal by Shaun Francis.
With two minutes left in the game, Karaca found himself one-on-one with CBA goalie John Putnam. He chipped the ball over Putnam’s head for the game winner.
