Soccer earns Homecoming sweep over Erie

Homecoming weekend started off on the right note as the women’s soccer team downed visiting Erie Community College, 6-0.

Dana Hansen got the scoring underway in the 8th minute as she connected on a through ball from Rachel Oliver. The early goal by Hansen was the only goal of the half.

The Cougars caught fire in the second as they tallied five more goals from five different players. Denae McGrath, Kate Springsteen, Nicole Bramer, Karissa Schuster and Ashley Makowski all found the back of the net while Springsteen and Makowski each dished out an assist.

The Lady Cougars improve to 6-3-1 overall and 2-1 in Western New York Athletic Conference play with the victory.


The men’s team continued the Homecoming success as they defeated Erie Community College, 4-1.

The Cougars took a 1-0 lead into the half after Jordan Cooper stuck home a pass from Nathan Rose in the 32nd minute.

The ECC Kats capitalized on a shot from outside the 18 that found its way past GCC keeper Sean Allen and knotted the game at 1 apiece.

The game was tied for less than a minute as Ryan Burns was able to get a foot on an Aaron Dunks cross and netted what proved to be the game winner. Dunks then added a goal of his own and assisted on another as Ben Polk made it 4-1 GCC. All of GCC’s second half goals came within five-minutes of each other.

The Cougars improve to 5-3 overall and are now 2-0 in WNYAC play.
