CANANDAIGUA, NY… Three goals from sophomore Diante Scheepers and a game winning goal from Ashley Hearn gives the Genesee Community College women's soccer team a 4-3 comeback win over the Finger Lakes Community College Lakers Wednesday afternoon.

In the second half, Scheepers would score to make it 3-2 with the assist from Isabelle Porter.

Ashley Hearn would score just 90 seconds later with the assist from Carleigh Folts to give Genesee a 4-3 lead and the Cougars would go on to the victory.

Reigning NJCAA Division III Goalkeeper of the Week Madison Papaj made three saves as she played the second half. Alexa Salatel made four saves in net for Genesee in the opening half.
