Lady Pioneers Upend Herkimer
The Alfred State College women's soccer team started off fast and defeated Herkimer CCC 5-1 in a key Region III Division III contest. ASC, winners of five in a row, are now 8-3 on the season.
Tiffany Fox (Canisteo Greenwood) got the scoring started just 31 seconds into the game when she followed up a shot by Holli Pierce (Livonia) that was deflected in front of the net by the HCCC goalie.
Tara Scholla (Genesee Valley) made it 2-0 with 36:34 remaining in the 1st half when she pounded a liner from over 35 yards out for her first career goal. Shea McKee (Canisteo Greenwood) made it 3-0 just over two minutes later after getting a pretty pass from Fox.
Fox netted her second goal of the day and fourth in the last two games seven minutes into the 2nd half after getting a pass from Pierce. McKee capped the Pioneer scoring with 21:45 remaining when she scored her second of the day after a nice pass from Abby Komarc (Horseheads).
Herkimer got on the board late with 4:45 remaining on a goal by Ashleigh Tracy.
Mo Parks (Avoca) made nine saves for ASC who outshot HCC 14 to 12.
