The C.W. Post Women’s Soccer team fell to the number-one ranked College of Saint Rose in the Division II NCAA East Region Championship on Friday, November 19th, 2010.
It had been a spectacular season for the girls who were ranked 13th in the nation and rolling off a thrilling 2-0 win against American International College in the second round of the Division II tournament. Against the College of Saint Rose the girls weren’t as fortunate. In a hard fought game, the girls suffered a 1-0 loss in the East Region Championship. The only goal came from Saint Rose freshman forward Sydney Bond in the 58th minute.
The Pioneers had a tough time generating offense against Saint Rose. They were out shot 12-1 in the first half, but thanks to the superb efforts of junior goalie Allie Weiser the game was close throughout. C.W. Post created some opportunities on offense late in the second half, but weren’t able to capitalize. As the time ran out, the College of Saint Rose Golden Nights advanced to the quarterfinals and remained undefeated and the Pioneers will look to rebound next year after finishing their season with a record of 14-2-4.
