Liverpool's inability to score, coupled with a few defensive letdowns, frustrated McGrane. A number of Liverpool shots missed their mark badly - and the ones that didn't, B'ville keeper Maggie Monnat was there to make the stop. She had nine saves in the shutout.
"We had a couple of chances," McGrane said. "But we didn't take advantage. You've got to capitalize on your chances."
For Liverpool, the loss marred an otherwise festive atmosphere at Solvay, which served as Liverpool's home field for Senior Night. Liverpool soccer underclassmen decorated the fences all around the field.
Behind the Liverpool bench, "Senior Night '09" was spelled out with white cups inserted into the fencing. Personalized posters of all the seniors as well as spray-painted sheets were also displayed.
McGrane started an all-senior lineup against the Bees. Liverpool's senior class players include: Erika Salem, Melanie Sarko, captain Nikki Liadka, Noel Peck, Alison Flood, Anna Vaccaro, captain Gabrielle Racines, Marlee Heintz, Megan Murphy, Shelly Just, captain Carly Bonzerato, Julia Bruno, Kathleen Conese and Laura Nicolais.
