CANANDAIGUA – The Lady Lakers perfect season continues.
This past Saturday (9/15), Finger Lakes stretched its overall record in 2012 to 6-0 (3-0 MSAC) by taking down Fulton-Montgomery CC at home, 11-nil. The host team earned the victory thanks to a team-wide effort out of its offense and defense. The Lady Lakers, who currently stand ranked 2nd in the nation, were led offensively by the hot feet of Cayli Carmona (forward), Rachel Hefner (defender), and Danielle VonHahmann over the weekend.
Carmona tallied 4 goals and 3 assists on the afternoon. Her 11 points were the third-most ever in a single game in the history of the women's soccer program at Finger Lakes. She now leads the nation in both assists (11) and points (35). The sophomore's goal total for the season has now reached 12 (2nd in the nation).
Hefner found the net twice in the Lady Laker win. Additionally, she supplied an assist (first of her collegiate career) to go along with her markers. The freshman now has 3 goals on the season.
VonHahmann was also on the scoring end of 2 goals (her 4th and 5th of 2012) -- joining her teammate Hefner.
Sonia Gucciardo (midfielder) contributed a goal and an assist for Finger Lakes. Gucciardo's goal and assist were the firsts of her collegiate career.
Natasha Hyland (midfielder) and Emily Stritzel (defender) rounded out the goal-scoring column for the Lady Lakers on Saturday by scoring one goal apiece. Hyland's goal was her 5th on the season. Stritzel's, on the other hand, was the 1st of her collegiate career.
Finger Lakes finished the day with 27 shots on goal (15 of them came in half one while the remaining 12 came in the final 45 minutes). The Lady Lakers not only played a well-scripted game on offense; however they also played a well-scripted one on defense too. Finger Lakes held Fulton-Montgomery to a grand total of 2 shots on goal all afternoon long. The 2 shots fired by Fulton resulted in saves for Lady Lakers goaltender Kristy Kirkpatrick.
With the shutout, Finger Lakes has now blanked 5 of the 6 opponents that they have faced thus far this season.
