Clinton women roll to win vs. Fulton-Montgomery

JOHNSTOWN — Kyli Swires, Kenna Agoney and Lyndale Nephew scored goals in the first half Wednesday and the Clinton Community College women’s soccer team rolled to a 4-0 win over outmanned Fulton-Montgomery Community College.

Swires opened the scoring at the 17:13 mark and was followed by Agoney at 25:08 and Nephew, on a penalty kick, at 30:09.

“We started a little slowly — I don’t know if it was the heat or what,” Clinton assistant coach Gena Rosenbaum said. “But once we got our first goal, we started to play better.”

Agoney added her second goal with 14:51 left in the contest, with Kiley Wilkins getting the assist, and that was when the game was called due to the Raiders being short on numbers.

“It was their first game, and they didn’t have many players,” Rosenbaum said. “They were packing it in defensively in the second half.”

The Cougars, who host Hudson Valley Community College at 2 p.m. Saturday, finished with a 29-5 advantage in shots on goal. Courtney Backus turned away four shots for the shutout in net.

“Kaila McGowan played great for us at outside midfield,” Rosenbaum said. “She made a lot of nice crosses.”

Sisinia Macchrelli, the second goalie used by Fulton-Montgomery, was a standout in the loss.

“She made a lot of great saves and played very well,” Rosenbaum said.
