BINGHAMTON - After getting off to a blistering start, heavy rain and a long delay spelled doom for the Jamestown Community College women's soccer team on Saturday afternoon.
Linnea Anderson recorded an unassisted tally and the Jayhawks outshot host Broome CC, 10-2, within the first 15 minutes of play, but an hour-long rain delay midway through the half extinguished whatever momentum JCC had gathered, and Broome won the Region 3 Division III contest 2-1 in overtime.
"I kid you not it was some of the heaviest rain I've ever seen," JCC coach Dana Shelters said. "We had them on their heels until the rain delay, and then we let it get away."
After Broome scored the equalizer with 9:30 left in regulation, Abby Godbout beat Jamestown goaltender Haley Sigular seven minutes into the overtime period for the win.
"There was a mad scramble in front, and I thought we had it well defended," Shelters said, "but in the wet grass and mud the ball slipped from (Sigular's) hands and they snuck it through."
Sigular, who Shelters said, "did a great job," made six saves in defeat.
Jamestown, now 1-2, won't have to wait long for a chance to get back to .500. The Jayhawks host Westmoreland County CC today at 1 p.m.
