Women's Soccer Team Tops SUNY Canton 5-1

Mighty Oaks finish the regular season with a 12-1 record

It was senior day for the women's soccer team as it took on SUNY Canton Oct. 25 at CNY Family Sport Center.

All six seniors on the ESF roster started the game. The Mighty Oaks got in a hole early after a quick goal by SUNY Canton five minutes into the first half. The Mighty Oaks responded at the 30th minute with a goal by Heather Carl, her 12th of the season. The Mighty Oaks had plenty of scoring chances in the first half including three shots that hit the post. At half time the score was knotted at 1-1.

Shortly after the start of the second half, senior Rachel Truska was able to convert off a pass from junior Bryony Striffler putting ESF up 2-1. The rest of the half was all ESF. Senior Bridget Cuddihy took over, scoring two goals in a five-minute period. Senior Ashley Miller sealed the game with a crazy goal off a long shot from outside of the box that hit the cross bar and went into the net.

The women's soccer team will learn its next opponent Oct. 27 during USCAA National Tournament Selection show. The USCAA Soccer Championships will take place Nov. 5-8 in Charleston, W.Va.
