Women's Soccer Defeats The College of New Rochelle

The women's team had already qualified for the post season tournament but the players went into the weekeng knowing that a win over New Rochelle would give ESF a higher seed. The squad took the field on senior day and came away with a 8-0 win.

Sophomore midfielder Theresa Ferrigno scored a hat-trick for the Mighty Oaks.

"I am so lucky to be part of a young team with such great chemistry. We basically lost our entire starting lineup from last year, but we've come a very long way in a very short amount of time. I see us carrying this energy into the conference playoffs this weekend as we take on King's College in the semifinals," Ferrigno said.

Also scoring for ESF was junior McKenna Pason, who got her first collegiate goal. The Mighty Oaks also charted goals by freshman Rachael Foote and junior Alyssa Hughes, and two by junior Maureen McCarthy.

The women's team finished the regular season with a 5-4 overall record, 2-1 in conference play. The team clinched the No. 2 seed in the conference tournament and will face The King's College Oct. 27 in the semifinals.

Four seniors were recognized before the start of the game: Renee Perrotte, Rachel Truska, Maeline Hollenbeck and Sarah Wohlfahrt.
