UNBEATEN STREAK HALTED AT SIX WITH LOSS AT WESTMINSTER
New Wilmington, PA – Geneva’s women’s soccer team hadn’t felt the sting of a loss in over a month. In fact, the Golden Tornadoes hadn’t tasted defeat since a 2-0 loss to Point Park on September 6th. Since that last defeat, Geneva had run its unbeaten streak to six matches, including three victories and three ties. On Saturday, its unbeaten streak came to an end with a 4-0 loss at Westminster. The loss dropped Geneva’s record to 5-3-3.
Geneva’s thorn on this day turned out to be Christina Adams, who found the net on all three first half goals for the Titans. Adams opened the scoring just over one minute into the match. She struck again two minutes apart at the 23rd and 25th minute of the first half. Geneva was able to hold Westminster off the board until the Titans closed out the scoring in the 87th minute.
The Golden Tornadoes managed just three shots in the match while Westminster fired 20 shots. Sophomore goalkeeper Lauren Londino, who entered the match with six shut-outs on the season, did her best to keep Geneva in the match, but the offense could never get on track.
Geneva will look to start a new streak on Wednesday night when it welcomes Chatham College to Merriman Athletic Complex.
Geneva students have the opportunity each summer to attend Au Sable Institute of Environmental Studies to develop practical methods of caring for the environment.
