HARCUM'S CINDERELLA RUN CULMINATES IN REGION 19 TITLE
West Windsor, NJ (October 28, 2016) -- The Harcum College Women's Soccer Team completed its improbable run through the Region 19 tournament with a 1-0 victory over Sussex County College to capture the program's first ever Region 19 championship. Freshman Deana Rivello scored the game's only goal early in the first half, and Harcum's defense, fueled by several saves from goalkeeper Mureka Howard, held off Sussex for the remainder of the game.
Harcum, which came into the tournament seeded fifth, won three games in six days over fourth seeded Essex, the number one seed Mercer, and second seeded Sussex, all three of whom had defeated the Bears during the regular season. It was Harcum's first ever appearance in the Region 19 championship game. The win improves the Bears to 11-7-1 on the season, with the 11 wins establishing a new single season school record. Harcum will now advance to the Northeast District tournament, hosted by Region 3 (upstate New York), next weekend, November 5 and 6.
