Outcome worth the wait for Cyclones soccer players
Good things come to those who wait.
Those words couldn’t have been truer for Moraine Valley College’s women’s soccer team last Wednesday. After seeing a few prime scoring chances foiled during regulation, the Cyclones finally broke through against Elgin College in overtime.
Less than two minutes into the extra session Diana Lozano ended the match on a positive note for Moraine. After beating a defender down the field and seeking only to hit the ball across the box, the Richards grad instead watched it go into the net to give the Cyclones a 1-0 victory that halted a losing streak.
Before Lozano came through, Kristina Cypser (Shepard), Alexis Delgado and Maggie Hacker (Sandburg) nearly did. Hacker, in fact, fired a shot that ricocheted off the crossbar in the later stages of the second half.
Moraine keeper Alexis Boyer received her share of tests, too, but was equal to the challenge as she finished with eight saves. The shutout was her third of the season.
