Women’s Soccer Starts Season with Back-to-Back Shutouts
BATAVIA, NY… The Genesee women’s soccer team won their first two games of the season over the weekend by defeating Clinton Community College 5-0 Saturday, and then defeating North Country Community College 4-0 on Sunday afternoon.
Saturday against the Clinton CC Cougars, Genesee would get two quick goals midway through the opening half from Alexa Jordan and Julia Ashworth. Macie Riggs and Diante Scheepers would add to the Cougars lead with late goals in the opening half for a 4-0 lead at intermission. The offense would strike again in the second half as Carleigh Folts found the back of the net. Strong defensive play by the Cougars defense was found from the outset and was had all game long, propelling the Cougars to the victory on their home field. Madison Papaj and Alexa Salatel split time between the nets for Genesee to record the shutout.
On a day that Genesee Athletics supported the Andie Carpenter Foundation, Genesee wore red in support and tribute Sunday afternoon against North Country Community College and the Cougars came out victorious, winning 4-0. Three goals from freshman Julia Ashworth powered the Cougars offense to the victory. Brianna Davis, Macie Riggs, and Michaela Curletta assisted on Ashworth’s three goals on the afternoon. Alexa Jordan added her second goal of the season for Genesee off a Diante Scheepers feed. Madison Papaj recorded her second consecutive shutout.
The nationally ranked women’s soccer team returns home on Saturday, August 31 against Mohawk Valley Community College. Game time is scheduled for 1pm. The game will be streamed live on www.geneseeathletics.com
