Women's Soccer Beats Jefferson and Wins MSAC Conference Crown

The Corning Community College women's soccer team was on the road again Monday, playing back-to-back days, as they headed North to Watertown, New York to play their final conference game against Jefferson Community College.  The game was moved to the General Brown High School turf due to rain the past 12 hours in the Watertown area.  Corning managed one goal and a halftime 1-0 lead thanks to an Emily Smith score from a Mackenzie Warner assist.  Finally, the Red Barons offense kicked into high gear and scored 4 times in the last 28-minutes of the game to pull away from the Cannoneers and earn the 5-0 victory and the MSAC Championship.  Taylor Sutryk started the second-half scoring with a shot to the low corner to beat the keeper, Warner assisted on this goal as well.  Warner got her own goal as she beat the JCC keeper to the top corner on a Carleigh Wallace assist.  Haley Ford scored unassisted for CCC's 4th goal and Sutryk struck again, this time unassisted, to make it 5-0.  Morgan Price had 5 saves on the day and recorded her 8th shutout of the season. 

Corning is now 11-2-1 overall and have won their last 10 games in a row.  The 11-wins ties the single season record for most wins set by the 2005 team.   Today's victory gives the Corning women a 5-0-1 conference record and their first-ever MSAC (Mid-State Athletic Conference) Championship.  Corning's only blemish came with a double OT tie with defending National Champion Broome CC back on August 30. 

Corning's last regular-season game is Wednesday, October 11 as they host Niagara CCC for a 4:30 kick-off.  The NJCAA Region III women's soccer postseason begins on October 24.
