Written by WBTA STAFF on August 31, 2018
GCC’s Diante Sheepers had both Cougar goals against No. 10 MCC
The Genesee Community College women’s soccer team dropped its first game of the season to visiting Monroe Community College 4-2 Aug. 29.
Genesee remains undefeated in National Junior College Athletic Association Division III play as the Tribunes are a NJCAA D-I team and nationally ranked at No. 10.
The Cougars either held the lead or played tied for nearly the first 75 minutes of the 90 minute contest and took a 2-1 lead into the break.
Diante Scheepers was the story of the first half with a pair of goals with both coming from free kicks.
After Scheepers staked the Cougars to a 1-0 lead about 13:00 minutes into the contest, the Tribunes responded 15 minutes later to tie the contest.
Less than two minutes after Monroe’s tying goal, Sheepers restored the Genesee lead.
Both teams had extra time to regroup during the intermission with an extended rain delay with the Tribunes taking advantage of the extra break time with a strong second half.
When action resumed, Roosa Ariya dominated for Monroe with the game’s last three goals.
Jaclyn Guzdek made 11 saves for Genesee as Monroe held the edge in shots on net, 15-6.
