PITTSFORD, New York - Eleni Markou scored three goals to lead the MCC women's soccer team to a 6-1 win over the Nazareth College JVs in a women's soccer match Wednesday afternoon.
The Tribunes improved to 5-3-2 with the victory. Monroe hosts Mercyhurst North East at 12 p.m. Saturday in a game that will determine home field for the Region III championship.
MCC wasted no time getting on the board, as Bianey Serrano took a pass from Elin Eklund and scored just 19 seconds into the game for a 1-0 lead. Eklund then made it 2-nil a little over four minutes later, with Markou assisting on the play.
Markou then took over from there. The freshman scored the next three goals - two to close out the first half, and one midway through the second - to wrap up the hat trick.
Lainy Ziegler scored in the final minutes to make it 6-0 in favor of Monroe. The Golden Flyers tacked on a goal late in the second half.
Kirsten Lane allowed one goal and made one save to earn the victory in goal for the Tribunes.
