NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- Early Saturday afternoon, the visiting Canisius Golden Griffins scored late to sink the Iona College women’s soccer program, 1-0. The contest was the first for Brad Bolton serving as interim head coach for the Maroon & Gold.
The winning strike came in the 83rd minute when Cansisius freshman defense player Emily Czechnowski one-timed an attempted Iona clearance past senior goalkeeper Taylor Rice. The oppurtunity came after the Griffs earned a corner kick attempt, one of their five chances for the game. It was the rookie’s first of her collegiate career.
