Freshman striker Olivia Hecei netted a hat trick to lead NCCC, which also got two goals each from sophomore Cristina Catalano and freshman Alexis Fyock. First-year forward Michelle Fiore rounded out the scoring for the T-Wolves. Classmate Halie Hambruch made seven saves in net for her first career shutout.
Next up for NCCC is a trip to unbeaten and nationally-ranked Genesee CC. The match is set to begin at 3 p.m. Wednesday on the GCC turf.
