Bocats Soccer Two More Wins!
PSC men’s and women’s soccer teams victorious in Vermont, defeating Vermont Tech 6-2 and 3-0.
The Vermont Tech women scored early in the first half of Sunday's match, but PSC’s freshman #7 Kara Nipper responded quickly with a goal assisted by sophomore #2 Britny Town. A goal from senior #9 Joelle Guisti gave the Bobcats a 2-1 halftime lead. PSC began the second half strong with an unassisted 25-yard rocket from sophomore #13 Alexa Cosgro. Guisti put in two more unassisted goals, and freshman #17 Elizabeth Matalavage added one goal from a penalty shot.
Despite several injuries, the Lady Bobcats controlled the game with precision passing from everyone, as well as long runs from sophomore defender #21 Rebekah Kruppenbacher who helped set up a number of offensive attacks. The defense held Vermont Tech to only 6 shots, and freshman goalkeeper Asenath Brooks recorded two saves. The win brings their record to 2-2 overall and 2-0 in the YSCC.
The men started out strong and dominated the entire match. Sophomore defender #1 Jeff Schmidt tallied the first PSC goal from a corner by freshman #19 Alex Roache. Sophomore #4 Anthony Ventello struck next with a 20-yard shot assisted by junior #25 Ryan Lawley. Then, from a pass by freshman #17 Max Curtiss, senior defender #9 Kyle Riedman launched a 30-yard shot across the field into the side netting to bring the score to 3-0 just before halftime. PSC held their lead through the second half, with strong showings from an amazing 10 substitutions! Of particular note was the defensive performance of sophomore #31 Fred Hapgood, who entered the match early and logged 65 minutes. Freshman Goalkeeper Ryan Little earned his second straight shutout and recorded 17 saves.
The men remain undefeated as they prepare to host Clinton Community College this Tuesday at 6pm. Both the men and women travel to Rutland, VT Saturday to play the College of St. Joseph, and then return home host Johnson State on Sunday.
