The women’s soccer team started things off this week, suffering a 0-8 loss against Hampshire. Hampshire started their scoring barrage within the first four minutes of the game and they never let up. Natalie Strohm led for Hampshire, scoring four goals and putting constant pressure on CSJ’s defense. Lady Saints goalkeeper Florence Tavares added seven saves to her USCAA- leading total.
Volleyball also played a match on Wednesday, losing to Paul Smiths 3-1. Although being defeated, the team showed just how strong they can be when they play together and communicate. They won their first set of the season and look to build on that success going forward.

Men’s and women’s soccer each hosted Central Maine CC on Sunday. The Lady Saints played hard, but were short a few players due to injury. They eventually lost the match 0-9. Florence Tavares notched another 16 saves to add to her season total of 84.
The men’s soccer team ended the week on a positive note, taking down Central Maine CC 4-2 and increasing their current winning streak to three games. They were in top form, passing the ball precisely and taking advantage of their opportunities. Simpson added another two goals, which is good enough for a team best eight goals on the season.
