It was Sophomore Night at Genesee Community College and the Women’s Soccer team continued their hot streak to end the regular season by beating Bryant and Stratton College 5-1.
Cady Hume (Batavia, NY) scored her second goal in three games in the 15th minute to give GCC the early 1-0 lead. Bryant and Stratton answered just seven minutes later to tie the game at one, but the Lady Cougars regained the lead in the 27th minute when Katie Smith (Akron, NY) put away a nice cross from Carly Shaw (Kendall, NY).
Genesee held the 2-1 advantage at the break and added to their lead early in the second half. Summer Bliss (Bethany, NY) scored her first goal of the season in the 4th minute, and assisted on a Marissa Pecora (Rochester, NY) goal in 42nd minute. Bliss added another goal with about 45 seconds to play, and Genesee earned their fourth straight win.
The Lady Cougars improve to 9-9 on the season and will move on to the Region III playoffs. Genesee is seeded 10th and will travel to #7 Onondaga on Saturday afternoon.
