The 2015 soccer season concluded with a stunning finish to the Great North-east Athletic Conference (GNAC) women’s soccer tournament at Lasell. The Lasers took on the Emmanuel College Saints. The championship match was scoreless for 85 minutes before current sophomore Carly Zdanek put the Lasers in front, until the Saints tied it up two minutes later. The score was 1-1 after regulation and stayed that way through two overtime periods. This led to a penalty kick shootout. The Lasers prevailed over Emmanuel 5-3 to take home their sixth consecutive GNAC title.

This year’s squad looks to reel in their seventh conference championship led by senior captains Megan Cullen (forward), Devon Day (midfielder), Mack Kingman (midfielder), and junior goalkeeper Sarah LaClair.
