Jayhawks Suffer 2-1 Soccer Loss

A strong second half wasn’t enough to overcome a slow start in the first as Jamestown Community College fell to Finger Lakes Community College, 2-1, in an NJCAA Region 3 Division III men’s soccer game on Wednesday.

“They got out to a 2-0 halftime lead,” JCC coach Pat Anderson said. “We came out in the second half and absolutely dominated, but could only manage one goal.”

Nolan Farr scored from Gage Bird at the 55th minute, and Jamestown (4-4-2, 2-2-1) outshot the Finger Lakes 10-2 in the second half, but goalkeeper Brian Arcara kept the visitor’s lead intact.

Corey Nash opened the scoring at the 29th minute and 11 minutes later Nathan Paull tallied the eventual game winner.

The Jayhawks are back in action on Saturday when they host Corning CC at 2 p.m.


”We played a lot better than the score indicates,” said Jamestown Community College coach Dana Shelters after a 4-0 Region 3, Division III setback to Finger Lakes CC, which is ranked second in the latest division poll.

The Jayhawks trailed only 1-0 at halftime on a goal by Brittany Maggio at 20 minutes but within six minutes after intermission Maggio had three more goals to ice the victory.

”We had our chances to score as we hit the cross bar and missed a wide-open net,” Shelters said.

Finger Lakes improves to 6-1. The top team nationally is Broome CC, which JCC meets later in the season.

Kaitlin Knott made six saves for Jamestown and Danielle Ogradowski had 10 saves for Finger Lakes.

JCC (1-2, 2-5) plays at home twice this weekend with a noon game on Saturday with Corning CC and at noon Sunday with North CC.
