Senior Midfielder, Reilly Zajac, started the night off with a goal only minutes into the game with an assist by Freshman Liz Barre. Five minutes into the game Junior Megan Dean received a pass from Junior Emma Dhmitri and sent the ball into the net, bringing the score to 2-0.
Sophomore Kassie Riemer maintained the scoring streak less than a minute later with an assist from Zajac. Watkins Glen couldn't gain possession of the ball in the first half, as the Lady Cats dominated offensively. In the 12th minute of the game, Riemer took the ball on a break away and defeated the Watkins Glen keeper with her skilled footwork, tapping the ball into the net and bringing the score to 4-0.
Although the Watkins Glen offense stepped up its game in the second half, it wasn't enough to stop the Lady Cats. Shortly into the second half, Dean scored her second goal of the night off a pass from Zajac, bringing the score to 5-0. A Lansing foul in the box provided Watkins Glen the opportunity to score off a penalty kick, which Sophomore Isobel Scheffey drilled into the right side of the Lansing goal. In the 68th minute of the game, Senior Maddy Czymmek put the ball in the net and secured the win for Lansing with a final score of 6-1.
Seniors who were honored at the game were: Maddy Czymmek, Nikki VanOstrand, Michelle Schafer and Reilly Zajac.
It may have been rainy and cold last Friday, but the frigid Fall weather didn't stop the Lansing Lady Cats in their winning streak, as they crushed the Southern Cayuga Chiefs 4-0.
The Chiefs came into the game with a 1-7 league record vs the Lady Cats 10-0-1 record and the Lady Cats lived up to the expectation of winning early in the game. Within the first two minutes of the game, Sophomore Kassie Riemer brought the ball down and crossed it from the left side of the field to Sophomore Mia Kuramoto who drove it into the net.
Riemer, who is leading the team in points this year, didn't stop her attack on the Chief's keeper, as she would score the next two of the Lady Cat's points – both within minutes of each other – assisted by Junior Megan Dean. Senior Reilly Zajac closed the first half of the game sending the ball high over the goalie's head and into the net, bringing the score to 4-0.
Southern Cayuga held the Lady Cats in the second half, but had difficulty getting the ball past Junior Maddie Boerman and Senior defender Michelle Schafer. The Chiefs had an opportunity with a penalty kick, but Sophomore goalie Lena Giesler scooped up the shot with ease. Overall, the Chiefs had four total shots on goal.
