Nassau CC takes first NJCAA men's title since 1998

Nassau Community College -- Bruce Arena's alma mater -- ended a 17-year drought, winning the 2015 NJCAA Division III Men’s championship with a 4-0 result over Bunker Hill Community College. Four different Lions scored as the New York school won its third national championship after titles in 1997 and 1998.

No. 3-seeded Nassau opened the scoring a goal from Reece Dalton in the 36th minute but then pulled away in the second half on goals by Benjamin Alonge, Marvin Eveillard and Franky Villegas.

Nassau finished 21-2-1, losing only to Mercer County in its season opener and to Monroe in October. The Bulldogs, who were 6-6-0 at the end of September, finished 16-8-0.

    It is a huge shame that California Community Colleges do not participate in the NJCAA tournament.
