Makowski's hat-trick propels Lady Cougars

Ashley Makowski scored a hat-trick on Wednesday night to help the Genesee Community College women's soccer team to a 5-3 victory over visiting Jamestown Community College, extending GCC's winning streak to nine in a row.

JCC took a 1-0 lead in the 6th minute, but Dana Hansen tied the game with a goal in the 13th minute for GCC, her first of two goals in the game. Hansen gave Genesee the lead with a header that found the back of the net just five minutes later off of a corner cross from Kaitlyn Bowers before Makowski made it 3-1 with her first of three goals in the 20th minute.

Jamestown CC was able to cut it to one with a late first half goal and Genesee led 3-2 at the break.

Makowski's second goal came off of a free kick in the 52nd minute and she increased the GCC lead to 5-2 with an unassisted goal in the 61st minute.

JCC added a late goal in the 89th minute, but it was too late as Genesee improved to 10-3-1 overall.

Hansen and Makowski each had an assist.

Maddie Potter made 14 saves in net for Genesee.

The Lady Cougars will return to action on Saturday when they travel to Onondaga Community College for a 1 p.m. start.
