The Lady Mavericks controlled much of the play against D’Youville, defeating the Spartans (25-15, 25-18, 21-25, 25-9) in four sets. The victory helped Medaille stay undefeated in AMCC play so far this season. On Tuesday, the Lady Mavericks avenged an early season loss to Buffalo State, taking the match (3-1; 25-22, 25-22, 20-25, 28-26).

The Lady Mavs travel to Mount Aloysius this Saturday before returning home to host rival Penn State-Behrend on Tuesday, October 20.

Women’s Soccer: The Lady Mavericks had perhaps their best week of the season last week, defeating the Barons of Franciscan (1-0), while pushing the four-time defending AMCC Champions Penn State-Behrend to the brink in double-overtime. Sunday’s victory against Franciscan was the Lady Mavericks first of the season, as sophomore Kayln Compeau scored the game’s only goal off a beautiful play from Candis Kapuscinski. Senior Alea Wade recorded the first shutout of her career as well, as the Lady Mavs improved their record to (1-8-1). Wade continued her stellar play on Tuesday against the Lions, who were frustrated in the first half en route to a (3-0) lead by Medaille at halftime. Goals by Jaime Michalewski (1) and Candis Kapuscinski (2) powered the Lady Mavs through the first (45) minutes. Wade’s (14) saves kept Medaille in the second half, as the Lady Mavs forced double-overtime before falling (4-3). The ladies will travel to Mount Aloysius on Saturday, before hosting Hilbert on Wednesday, October 21.

Medaille won a program best (6) matches overall, and (4) conference matches to get them into their first ever post-season play.
