ECC Lady Wolverine Soccer Team Region 19 Champs

2023 Division II, Region 19 Women’s Soccer champions

ECC’s Women’s Soccer team captured the 2023 Division II, Region 19 championship with a 2-1 victory over Mercer County Community College on Saturday, October 28. The triumph avenges an early season loss to Mercer.

The win propels ECC into the Northeast District Championship game on Saturday, November 4 against Community College of Baltimore County (CCBC) – Essex. The game will be played at the CCBC Dundalk Campus in Maryland.

“Our first game we lost to Mercer 7-2 due to injuries and missing a few players. But we keep pushing and moving forward, never letting our guard down; just having this hunger from where we have been from the beginning feels different,” said Coach Monique Edouard, an ECC alumna. “At the end of the day we are champions, and I am extremely proud of them.”

Nisrine Taalbe got the Lady Wolverines on the scoreboard midway through the first period. Tiffany Escobar’s tally just before halftime proved to be the game winner. Liana Arias made five saves in the victory.

“This is great news. I wish the team much success going forward. Our student-athletes have made our entire College proud,” said ECC’s President, Dr. Augustine A. Boakye.  

The winner of the November 4 game advances to the National Junior College Athletic Association national championship tournament in Tucson, Arizona.
