On a day when York County was pounded with torrential rain, only one local outdoors sports event managed to weather the storm.
And for the York College women's soccer team, the drenching they absorbed ended up being well worth it.
The Spartans emerged from the contest vs. visiting Penn State Harrisburg soggy but victorious, 3-0.
According to the official box score, a crowd of 38 people ignored the elements to watch the match.
York improved to 3-1-3 with the non-league victory, while Penn State Harrisburg fell to 2-3. York and Penn State Harrisburg will become Capital Athletic Conference foes in 2013.
Elizabeth Bunn, Jamie Sokolis and Jena Arnister scored the goals for York, while Dale Mason provided an assist.
The Spartans dominated the action, outshooting Penn State Harrisburg, 25-3, while also holding a 5-0 edge in corner kicks.
Goalie Melanie Glessner earned her fifth shutout of the year, recording two saves. Glessner's scoreless streak now stands at 275 minutes, 35 seconds, dating back to the Dickinson game when she surrendered her lone goal of the year. Glessner lowered her goals-against average to 0.14. She's allowed just one goal in 645 minutes of work.
The match kicked off a five-match home stand for York that continues on Saturday when the Spartans play host to Marymount in a CAC contest. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. at Graham Field. York is 0-0-1 in the CAC, while Marymount is 0-1-0.
