Vermont Tech Falls 4-0 in Season Opener

Canton, NY- The Vermont Tech Green Knights struggled in their season opener with a slow start ina 4-0 loss to SUNY Canton on Sunday afternoon.

 
The Roos got on the board first when Fran Trombley collected a loose ball just in front of goal, then played a one-touch pass to Kaleigh Foran who placed the ball into the net. Eleven minutes later Karyss Terrance made it 2-0 for the hosts. With just six minutes remaining in the opening half Tressa Goolden netted her first of two goals of the match.
 

The Green Knights (0-1) were able to recover towards the end of the first half and pressure The Roos.  Late in the first half  Cassie Ross (Barre, VT) took a shot that deflected off the post and was eventually was cleared by the Roos defense. Vermont Tech was also able to create additional offensive opportunities in the second half, by generating 4 corner kicks and keeping up the pressure on the Roos, but it was just not enough to get on the scoreboard.

 

The Roos final goal came with just under 10 minutes to play as Katie Lamica played a ball up the right side to Goolden, who had a well struck shot across the face of goal that deflected off Vermont Tech keeper Laura Flint (Highgate, VT) and into the goal.

 

Flint made 12 saves for the Green Knights. Vermont Tech Women's Soccer is back in action on this Friday Sept 5 at Southern Maine CC for a 2:30pm kick off.
