Cayuga's Inspirational Play Not Enough to Get the Win

Cayuga's Inspirational Play Not Enough to Get the Win

The Cayuga Lady Spartans drop another on the road at TC3 after an inspirational performance by all.

The Lady Spartans traveled to TC3 Wednesday for a rare night game under the lights. Cayuga struggled to get the ball out of their defensive end for a large part of the first half, netting two goals for the Lady Panthers. To make matters worse freshman goalie Cheyenne Rivenburg (Little Falls, NY) was taken out of the game with a knee injury and was replaced by back up keeper Destinee Frink (Auburn, NY). The change was seamless as Frink was incredible.

The second half provided some truly inspirational play from the Lady Spartan's which helped produce their first goal. Cayuga's first goal came off a ball from the defense to freshman sensation Michaela Breeze (Auburn, NY) as she worked her way towards she was foaled in the box which set up a penalty kick. Michaela neatly put the ball in the net for a 2 to 1 score. About 10 minutes later TC3 was able to finally get one past Frink to increase their score line to 3-1. The Lady Spartans continued to fight and push for the offense. Michaela Breeze added a second goal with a beautiful shot in the upper corner of the goal after weaving her way through the defense. Cayuga pushed and pushed for the tie goal with great shots from Breeze that produced some great saves from the TC3 goalie. TC3 was able to add an insurance goal after a penalty kick was awarded with 5 mins left in the game.

Coach Robillard had this to say about the game and the squad, "the ladies were inspiring with the backup keeper coming on and some players like Monica Espada (Auburn, NY), Duanna Johnson (Auburn, NY) and Emily Crosby (Auburn, NY) really stepped up, Michaela was class as always. This was a heartbreaking lose but the ladies' effort was a truly amazing sight"

Goalkeeper Cheyenne Rivenburg (Little Falls, NY) had 12 saves.

Goalkeeper Destinee Frink had 7saves
