Soccer Off to 4-0 Start With Win Over Mercer CC

The Roadrunners are off to a 4-0 start!

September 11, 2012 Deptford, NJ

The Roadrunner Women’s Soccer Team has picked up right where they left off last season. The team is running the system put in place by head coach Megan Ruttler and playing smothering defense. Many of the faces are new but the style of play remains the same and has the team off to a 4-0 start that includes four shutouts for freshman goalkeeper Alicia Barger.

On Tuesday afternoon the Roadrunners passed their toughest test of the young season with a 1-0 win over visiting Mercer CC. The Roadrunner defense, led by returning All-Region 19 performer Missy Trafton, limited the Mercer chances on goal and what chances Mercer did have were swallowed up by Barger in net. The lone goal of the game was scored by freshman Amber Scott early in the first half of play. GCC created several other chances and had the better of the time of possession in the game but could not knock in an insurance goal so the game was tense and well-played through the final moments.

The Roadrunners are looking to take the final steps this season after steadily improving under Ruttler. Last season the team reached the NJCAA Region 19 Championship game before falling to Ocean CC.

Today’s game was a part of what should be a fun three-game stretch that also includes a good game against Sussex CC on Saturday and then a feature match vs. Ocean CC on Thursday September 20th.
