Sophomore Brenna Mereness (Castleton/Maple Hill High School) scored four goals to lead the Hudson Valley Community College (6-1-1/6-1-1 Region III) women’s soccer team to a 5-0 win over Genesee Community College (6-2-1/6-2-1) today in Troy.

Both teams entered the game sporting just one loss on the season and both teams were coming off close games on Saturday. The game was back-and forth over the first 12 minutes before Hudson Valley’s Laura Good (Brainard) scored off a rebound off the keeper late in the 13th minute.

After that, it was all Mereness, who scored in the 24th, 51st, 60th and 75th minute.

Freshman Sherri Griffin (Latham/Shaker High School) started in goal for the Lady Vikings and recorded three saves. Emily Tironi (Waterford/Waterford- Halfmoon High School) came in to make two saves over the final 20 minutes.
