Win streak snapped against No. 8 Cougars
BATAVIA, NY – Riding a seven-game win streak into Genesee Community College Saturday (10/18), the Herkimer Generals women’s soccer team was unable to beat their fifth nationally ranked opponent this season, losing to the Cougars 4-0.
Herkimer (11-2, 6-0) was unable to deal with the Cougars’ high powered offense, allowing them to net four goals which was the most by NJCAA DIII competition to date. Herkimer had allowed three goals all together during the seven-game win streak, and were also shutout for the first time.
In goal for the Generals was Sydney Stanley (Schoharie, NY). The freshman was out dueled by sophomore Megan Mase, saving six shots, but in the process allowing a season-high in goals to NJCAA DIII competition.
Herkimer will find out their Region III playoff seeding next week, with quarterfinals beginning on Saturday, October 25th. The higher seed will host the playoff game. The Generals could get a bye for quarterfinals, then host a semifinal game at Wehrum Stadium on Tuesday, October 28th.
