Poultney, VT – The SUNY Canton women's soccer team took the lead in the third minute and never looked back as it defeated host Green Mountain College, 3-0, Wednesday afternoon. The win improves the Kangaroos to 3-0, while the loss drops the Eagles to 1-2.
Franchesca Trombley (Dekalb Junction, NY) got the day started for the Roos just 2:41 in when she lobbed a shot from outside the 18 yard box over Green Mountain goalkeeper Amber Heath for the early 1-0 lead. SUNY Canton struck again in the 34th minute, this time off a set piece corner kick, one of their four opportunities in the opening stanza.
Karley Cree (Hogansburg, NY) took the strike off the corner and her pass found Karyss Terrance (Hogansburg, NY) who redirected the ball with her head into the back of the net. The Roos held a 9-1 shots on goal advantage as they dominated the opening 45 minutes to take a 2-0 lead into break.
SUNY Canton continued to apply pressure in the second half and added an insurance goal in the 74th minute when Katlyn Hart (Harrisville, NY) dished a pass to Melissa Campoverde (Forest Hills, NY) who dribbled in on a breakaway and beat Heath low and right for what would eventually be the 3-0 final.
Campoverde and Trombley paced the Roo attack with four and three shots on goal, respectively. SUNY Canton held a distinct 13-2 edge in shots on goal in the game. Brittany Rotach (Brasher Falls, NY) stopped two shots for her second shutout of the season, while Heath made 10 saves in the loss.
