Cossin Problems

The Brockport Golden Eagles women’s soccer team faced off against the Alfred University Saxons where the Golden Eagles won definitively 3-0. The game showcased the best of the Golden Eagles’ defense and offense, as they scored in both halves, showcasing their dominance. 

The shot that swung the momentum for Brockport came from Cossin who has been nothing short of electric, her goal put her as the leading scorer in the SUNYAC. Cossin has 25 points on the year with nine goals and has been the consistent part of the Golden Eagles’ offense all year. She also won SUNYAC Player of the Week Sept. 12-18.  

Brockport Head Coach Mike Idland loves the example Cossin sets. 

“I feel very happy for her. She deserves it… she honestly just keeps getting better you know, week by week here.” Idland said.  “She sets a great example… Her work ethic, she’s humble. You would never know when you talk to her that she’s right at the top of the league. That’s probably why, she just consistently brings it every day”. 

Cossin always hoped from a young age to be the player she is today. 

“I would always hope that would be what would happen,” Cossin said. “I’ve always loved to play soccer. It’s always been something that has excited me, I’m excited to go to practice and I’m excited to play so I know the younger me would be excited that I’m still out here playing and that I’m putting in the work to try to get to become the best player I could be.”  

“I just try not to think about it… I’m not putting the pressure on myself to be perfect all the time,” Cossin said. “I’m not putting the pressure that oh, I’m the best out here. I have to be the best out here all the time. I just I go out there and I’d be myself and work as hard as I can every time and I turned out something about everything.” 

“I feel excited about it like it motivates me,” Cossin said. “But also, I have to make sure every game I’m coming, I’m showing up and that’s just a good reflection of, when I’m putting in the work, the results are coming, but to not let up with that. I must keep showing up. I want to shout out my team because all of that starts in the back and moves up.” 

The Golden Eagles improved to 10-2-1 with the win and are back in action at New Paltz on Oct. 7.
