Cougars Roll Saints in Season Opener

The No. 7 Genesee Community College women's soccer team kicked off the 2015 season with a shutout win on the road at Mercyhurst North East on Thursday afternoon, dropping the Saints 8-0.

Shawna Adams recorded a hat-trick and two assists to lead GCC and fellow sophomore Kayla Doyle added two goals and two assists.

Adams struck in the 16th minute with the game's first goal to put Genesee in front 1-0. Doyle followed five minutes later with a goal off of a penalty kick before Adams made it 3-0 in the 29th minute.

GCC led 4-0 at the break after Nikki Mauro scored her first goal of the season and goals by Taylor Miller, Doyle, Adams and Gabriella Garcea in the second half helped Genesee cruise to the win.

The Cougars out-shot Mercyhurst North East 23-8 and goalkeeper Katlynne Tubo made five saves in net to earn the win.

Genesee (1-0) will travel to the Herkimer College Tournament this weekend and open with Union County College on Saturday afternoon at 12:15 p.m.
