DELHI, N.Y. (September 29, 2017) – The SUNY Delhi women's soccer team hosted Florida National in an afternoon contest on Friday.

Broncos keeper Jacqueline Slentz kept Delhi in the match in the first half with six first-half saves. The only score given up in the half was an Eileen Garcia goal at 40:07, assisted by Annie Shiela Power. Florida National got to work early in the second, where back-to-back Jurema Borini scores at 46:38 and 48:57 and another from Isabela Martins off a free kick at 52:08 saw Delhi behind, 4-0. The Broncos got one back when Lenore Aponte scored her first goal of the year, assisted by Chade Mason at 71:27, but another Borini score at 89:05 closed out the scoring.
Slentz finished with eight saves on the afternoon, while Conquistador Savannah Laster finished with three saves. The Broncos were outshot, 21-7, including 13-4 in shots on goal. Aponte accounted for two of those shots on goal, with Emily Guerra and Brianna Volans tallying the remaining two.
