Playing in their first game since appearing in the National Junior Collegiate Athletic Association's National Poll at No. 4, the Genesee Community College's women's soccer team wasted no time validating its vault into the national spotlight by improving their record to 6-0 on the season.
The team nearly doubled its offensive output of the season against visiting Niagara County Community College with an 11-0 win Sept. 13, with eight of the 11 coming in the first half.
A dozen different players found their way to the score sheet and were led by current NJCAA Region III Player of the Week, Niko Yamishita. The freshman tallied the game's first three goals after about a dozen minutes to begin the rout.
Katline Cartwright had two of the team's three second-half goals and last two of the contest, while also adding an assist.
The game was the first of a home stand of six with the next coming Sept. 20 when the Cougars will host Cayuga Community College at 4 p.m. The game will be streamed online at the following link: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/59y5DKH5kFN
