NEWCOMB - The Minerva\Newcomb Lady Mountaineers have traveled a hard road over the past three years, not winning a single soccer game.
It all ended on Sept. 17 in their league matchup against undefeated Keene Valley.
Charlotte Egli and Larissa Roy led the Mountaineers to a long-overdue 3-1 victory.
Egli, an exchange student from Switzerland tirelessly led the offensive effort. She scored three goals and delivered one assist.
Roy, a senior at Newcomb, netted a goal and tallied one assist. She and Egli worked well together on the front line and both will be pivotal to the Mountaineers success in the rest of the season.
Mountaineers goalie Marlena Peter made several stellar saves late in the game to hold off the Beavers. She totalled 10 saves in the net.
Jessica Caner tallied the lone Keene goal, assisted by Holbrook. Beaver goalie Megan Hall finished with four saves.
"It's a very special win," said Mountaineers Head Coach Ed LaCourse. "We never expected to be in this game, but now that we have ended the losing-streak we can move forward."
Minerva\Newcomb held a 2-0 lead at the half and a 3-0 advantage in the second before Keene got on the board.
This win may mean brighter days ahead for the Lady Mountaineers.
