The women’s soccer team continues to struggle this season as their season winds down to the final two games this week. The Bulldogs lost their final conference game against Lehman College this past weekend in a 0-5 final score against the Lehman College Lightning. The loss hands Brooklyn their 8th straight loss and 12th on the year.
The home team, Lehman, started things off in the 28th minute of the first half, as Daisy Gomez would score first for Lehman off an assist from Daniela Castro. The Lightning would bump up the scoreboard before the first half ended, scoring two more goals before the break and giving Lehman a comfortable 3-0 lead.
As the second half kicked off Brooklyn had a chance to get on the scoreboard as senior midfielder, Liliana Cabral, had a clean look at the goal net, but her shot was saved by the goalie in the 49th minute. After an offensive drought by both teams, the Lightning scored their fourth goal on the contest in the 78th minute. Less than three minutes later, they would ice their home victory by scoring their 5th and final goal.
Lehman improves to an 8-7-1 overall record and a 4-2 CUNYAC record with their win over Brooklyn. Brooklyn will enter as the 5th seed in this season’s CUNYAC playoffs. The Bulldogs still have two non-conference games left before the playoffs kick off next week: Tuesday against Manhattan College and Friday against Wesley College, both road games.
