Cayuga never seemed comfortable as they started the first half giving up 6 unanswered goals to the high-powered attack team of defending NJCAA National Champion Broome.
The second half was a different story and Cayuga came alive. The Spartans held the Hornets scoreless for a good portion of half number 2...as well and producing some excellent scoring chances. Cayuga did allow Broome add two quick late goals. The Lady Spartans avoided the shutout by scoring one of their own goals. Rebecca Segion (Fulton, NY) used some sneaky foot skills and was able to dribble past the Broome on coming goalie and tucked a neat little pass to on coming freshman Maeghan Westmiller (Port Bryon, NY) who slotted it in the visitor's net.
After the game, Coach Robillard had this to say, "We had some bumps in the road in the first half but really came alive in the second. I was happy with small parts of the game and the second half gave us some great looks at goals. We are really coming together as a team."
Cayuga host Jamestown Community College on Saturday 9/16 for the last home game at Emerson Field. The Spartans will play the remainder of the home slate at the newly renovated Holland stadium…adjacent to the College's campus behind Auburn Middle School .
