Lady Lions Win Third in a Row
The TKC Women's Soccer team headed out to Brooklyn Wednesday night 9/26 to take on the NYU-Poly Blue Jays in a non-conference contest. Conference Rookie of the Week for the past two weeks, Genesis Castrellon, continued her torrid scoring streak with all four goals in a 4-0 victory. After two goals and two assists in a 4-0 win over Sarah Lawrence on Saturday, the game winning goal in a 1-0 win over Briarcliffe last week, and the game winning goal against New Hampshire Tech, Genesis has been directly involved in 10 straight TKC goals! Offensively, forward Caitlin Essex took four shots and picked up an assist on a great feed to Genesis. Center midfielder Caroline Craddock got her 3rd assist of the season after a clever pass also to Genesis. It was the Lady Lions third straight shutout win with keeper Victoria McAlister, last week's USCAA Player of the Week, picking up her second straight shutout victory while making three saves. The defense was solid in front of her with Annalise Bourgeois, Jordan Olson and Ariel Mouser limiting the Blue Jays to just 3 shots. Midfielders Kasey Sisson, Voleak Sroeung and Erika Hilliard provided relentless work controlling the flow of the game. The team improved to 4-2 overall and this weekend takes on SUNY-Canton in another non-conference match-up. The team is in Brooklyn on Saturday 10/5 taking on St. Joseph's at 11 a.m. Come out and support the team prior to the school picnic and powder puff football festivities!
