BCC Wins Women's Soccer Regular-Season Finale; Tournament Next

October 23, 2012 - Sophomore Courtney Hueston scored three goals and freshman Sue Kumaning scored once as Brevard Community College's women's soccer team closed its regular season on a winning note defeating Polk State College 4-0 on Tuesday in Auburndale.

Hueston's goals were her eighth, ninth and 10th of the season, tying her with fellow sophomore Lois Edvardsson for the team lead. Kumaning's goal, her fifth of the season, capped the scoring on what BCC head coach Jeff Carr called the best ball of the year.

"It was beautiful," Carr said of the strike from 20-23 yards out.

Hueston also recorded an assist, on Kumaning's goal. Other assists went to sophomore Gabby Jaimes and freshman Katlyn Bales. Sophomore goalkeeper Julia Kantor had three saves. 

The victory moved BCC to 12-1 on the season. Next up for the Titans, who are ranked No. 1 nationally in the NJCAA Division I poll, is the NJCAA District H championship game on Nov. 3 in Mississippi.

The match against either Pearl River Community College or Meridian Community College – they play on Saturday to determine who meets BCC – will decide the district representative in the NJCAA Division I national championship tournament to be played Nov. 12-17 at Melbourne Central Catholic.

The regular season finish is the best for the BCC program which is in its third year of existence. BCC's only loss was a 4-1 defeat at the hands of defending national champion Tyler (Texas) Junior College on Sept. 8 in Kansas. Since then BCC has won 10 straight matches, including one by forfeit, and has posted six shutouts, outscoring its opponents 28-4.

It also has overcome key injuries, illness and a red-card suspension to reach the district final for the second straight season.
