CANANDAIGUA, N.Y. – The Finger Lakes Community College Women’s Soccer team suffered a season-ending defeat to the Jamestown Community College Jayhawks this past Tuesday. The Lakers lost 3-2 in the final minutes of the game.
The ball was evenly kept on both sides of the field throughout the whole game. The Jayhawks managed to get more shots off than the Lakers. In the first half, the Lakers put the first point on the board. Stephany McBride scored the first Laker goal unassisted. She dribbled up the right side of the field and fired it in for a goal. Laker goal keeper, Isabella Prest kept them in the half making save after save.
The second half started out with the first Jayhawk goal of the night. It was scored by Courtney Hewes unassisted. The Lakers were hungry to get that goal back and Allison Page made it happen. Riley Sanger crossed the ball from the right side of the field to an open Page, where she initially tried to go for a header, missed, then recovered the ball and kicked it past the Jayhawk’s goalie. The Lakers seemed to have the lead, but then Alexa Dix put one past Prest for the second Jayhawk goal of the game. She was assisted by Kelly Keefe. Then, with less than two minutes left in the game, Hewes found the back of the net again, from Dix. The Jayhawks won the game 3-2.
