CALIFORNIA (Nov. 5) – Behind goals by five different players, the No. 7 and top-seeded Vulcans cruised to a 5-0 victory over eighth-seeded Mercyhurst on Tuesday afternoon in the quarterfinals of the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) Tournament.
With the win, the California University of Pennsylvania women's soccer team extended its winning streak to 16 games and improved to 16-2-1 overall. The Vulcans also secured hosting rights for the remainder of the PSAC Tournament, which resumes with the semifinals on Friday, Nov. 8. Meanwhile, the Lakers finish the year with a 9-9-1 mark.
The Vulcans jumped out to a quick lead in the fifth minute when junior Chelsea Crockett scored off a pass from classmate Megan Politowski, a Baldwin graduate, following a failed clear attempt by the Lakers. Politowski recorded a goal in the 44th minute off a rebound following a corner kick by junior Jordan Gray.
