The Corning Community College women's soccer team saved their best game for their last home game Monday afternoon as the Red Barons hosted Jefferson CC. The CCC offense was firing on all cylinders in the first half, especially the first twelve minutes of the match. Mackenzie Warner started the attack as she scored 7:25 in. Two-minutes later, Warner lofted a free kick from 20-yards out, over the outstretched hands of the Jefferson keeper, to find the back of the net and put Corning up 2-0. At the 12-minute mark, Warner found Alyssa Crawford on a pass through the Cannoneer defense and Crawford put the Barons up 3-0. After 35-minutes of play, Jessica Hickey blasted a keeper deflection, off a Paige Hendershot shot, into the net to make it 4-0 Corning. Hendershot would get her own goal three-minutes before halftime to take a 5-0 lead. Corning outshot the Cannoneers 13-1 in the half.
Jefferson got on the scoreboard two-minutes in to the second-half as a long ball over the Baron defense left the Corning keeper in a one-on-one situation. Hendershot would score in the 55th-minute on PK as she was taken down in the box, putting Corning up 6-1. Jefferson then took momentum and control of the ball for the next 20-minutes as they scored twice more and closed the gap 6-3 with 16-minutes to play. That was however as close as JCC would get as Hickey scored with two-minutes left on a perfect flick over the top of the defender from Crawford that left Hickey one v. one. Corning goalie Rae Ann Prestridge had a great game in the net as she recorded 16 saves, 15 of those coming in the second-half.
Corning travels to Niagara County Community College in Wednesday for their final regular-season match.
