ROCHESTER, N.Y. - The Rochester Lady Lancers dropped a 1-0 decision to the undefeated Lancaster Inferno in a United Women's Soccer game at Charles A. Schiano Sr. Field at Aquinas Institute on Sunday afternoon.
As it turns out, the game was decided on a penalty kick decision and a non-call on a PK.
Forward Ryelle Shuey gave the Inferno (20-3) all the scoring they needed in the 34th minute, a minute after she was fouled in the upper left corner of the penalty area. Shuey took the ensuing spot kick and deposited it into the right side as goalkeeper Saundra Baron expected her to shoot to the opposite side. Shuey took over the team goal-scoring lead with three goals.
The Lancers (0-6-0) felt they should have had a penalty kick of their own awarded in the 79th minute as Kenzie Tarmino's free kick from the right flank hit the arm of a Lancaster player, but no call was made.
The Inferno (2-0-3) enjoyed the better scoring opportunities.
Forward Claire Myers had Rochester's best two chances. She tried to chip goalkeeper Raegan Dunwoodie in the 13th minute, but the shot sailed over the crossbar in the 13th minute. The Fairport, N.Y. native's 18th-minute attempt went wide left.
Baron, a Trinidad & Tobagan internatonal, enjoyed another strong game, making 10 saves. Her most spectacular save came in the 43rd minute, when she tipped a shot by Clarissa Kirsch-Downs off the crossbar.
Dunwoodie, who played the opening 45 minutes, and halftime substitute Kayla DeTreux shared the shutout.
For the first time, the Lancers' Hudson sisters played together in a soccer match. Waniya Hudson, 20, who attended Greece Athena High School, started the game. Winsom, 27, a forward and an Aquinas H.S. graduate, came on for Dori Rizzo in the 64th minute.
After the contest, the Lancers bid farewell to team president of operations Ashley Maria King Solomianko, who worked her final Lady Lancers games. Solomianko is moving to Florida with her husband, Dr. Marek Solomianko. After a UWS team dropped out during the spring of 2017, Solomianko created the Lady Lancers in only two weeks, and they have been competing in the league since.
In the second game of a doubleheader, the Lancers men met the Pittsburgh Hotspurs in a National Premier Soccer League match.
The Lady Lancers visit Syracuse DA on Friday night before returning home to welcome the Albany Rush at Aquinas on Sunday, June 20 at 2 p.m. They finish their 2021 home slate against Syracuse DA on Sunday, June 27 at 2 p.m.
