Women’s Soccer Fails to Score in Losses to Penn, Colgate

The women’s soccer team dropped both its matches this weekend, falling on the road at Penn on Friday and at home yesterday to Colgate. Cornell (4-6-0, 0-1-0 Ivy) lost 1-0 to Penn in its Ivy League opener, while its 3-0 loss to Colgate was its first loss at home.
Though Penn (6-2-1, 1-0-0) controlled most of the play, the only goal that the Red defense conceived was a 9th minute own goal. The women were able to keep Penn’s Jessica Fuccello in check, holding her to just one shot on goal. Fucello is second in scoring in the Ivy League to Cornell’s Lena Russomagno. As a team, the Quakers outshot the Red 11-1, and earned 10 corner kicks compared to the Red’s zero.
