The No. 1 Genesee Community College women's soccer team finally succumbed to an opposition in National Junior Collegiate Athletic Association D-III play Oct. 7. It took a high nationally-ranked opponent to do it and it happened on the road.
The Cougars had played four 0-0 halves during its streak and did so again against No. 3 Herkimer in the second half, however an uncharacteristic lapse of a half-dozen minutes in the first did the Cougars in when they lost to the Generals 6-0.
Four of Herkimer's first four goals came within a six-minute span that included some inadvertently going in off Cougar players in a string of unfortunate plays that helped lead to the team's demise.
The Cougars had built a 10-game D-III undefeated streak since the beginning of the season and had out-scored its opposition 28-6 during that span that included seven shutouts.
Genesee continues on the road with a 4 p.m. contest at Finger Lakes Community College Oct.11.
