No. 5 Cayuga Community College men's soccer defeated No. 4 Camden on penalty kicks Thursday at Herkimer College to advance to the NJCAA National Semifinal, which is scheduled for Friday.
The two teams battled through a scoreless 90-minute regulation, followed by two scoreless 10-minute overtimes.
Cayuga outscored Camden in the PKs 4-2, with Mauricio Kosegarten, Ryan Higgins, Matthew Devlin and Eduardo Olavide converting. Daniel Burdaspar finished with eight saves in the shutout.
