BCC Defeats Polk State College 3-2 in Women's Soccer
September 28, 2012 - Sophomore forward Courtney Hueston scored two goals, including the game winner, as the Brevard Community College women's soccer team recorded a crucial 3-2 Florida College System Activities Association Southern Conference victory over Polk State College at Palm Bay Regional Park on Friday.
Hueston's second goal, her fourth of the season, broke a 2-2 tie in the 71st minute after Polk stormed back from a 2-0 halftime deficit with goals in the 46th and 62nd minute respectively.
Hueston scored BCC's first goal in the 14th minute on an assist from leading scorer and sophomore co-captain Lois Edvardsson who netted her sixth goal of the season in the 27th minute to give the Titans a 2-0 lead.
BCC improved to 6-1 overall and 2-0 in the conference which also doubles as the NJCAA's Region 8. Polk dropped to 1-1 and visits 0-2 Broward on Saturday. Polk defeated Broward earlier this season as did BCC.
The teams play each other three times each in the regular season. Only one advances to the NJCAA postseason which culminates in the Nov. 11-17 national tournament at Melbourne Central Catholic.
Hueston credited her teammates for the goals.
"Both goals wouldn't have happened without the help of my team," she said. "We didn't come out how we wanted to in the second half. We gave them hope but that third goal finished them off. Overall when we get chances we need to bury them because at nationals those teams will make us pay."
BCC head coach Jeff Carr had mixed feelings on the result.
"Their quick goal in the second half gave them momentum because they only had two or three shots in the entire game," Carr said. "And of course when they tied it up . . . all of a sudden they were energized.
"We stayed composed and we came back and got the victory. That shows a lot of character of the team and the young ladies we have on it. We're pleased with the victory but we've got to get better."
Next up for Brevard is a 6 p.m. Friday match with Broward at West Melbourne's Max Rhodes Park.
Freshman Sue Kamaning, who recorded an assist, played a solid game in the midfield for BCC, thwarting numerous Polk attacks.
