The Genesee Community College women's soccer team defeated the visiting Niagara County Community College Thunderwolves by a final score of 3-2 on Thursday afternoon.
Niagara scored the first goal of the contest 14 minutes in when Victoria Gray got a shot past Genesee keeper Nicole Patterson. The Cougars would tie the contest fifteen minutes later when Dana Hansen found the back of the net. Shelby Hatfield earned the assist.
The second half saw Genesee get out to a two goal lead as Kaitlyn Bowers and Rachel Ball scored to make it 3-1. Niagara would score one of their own late in the half as Alison Conner tallied the goal, but it was not enough as GCC held on for the 3-2 victory.
Patterson made nine saves to pick up GCC's second consecutive victory of the season.
The Lady Cougars (2-3-1) will return to action on Saturday afternoon at 1:00pm when they travel to Mohawk Valley Community College.
