Field Hockey Comes Up Short To Oneonta, 2-1

GENESEO, N.Y. - SUNY Geneseo junior forward Elisa Arcara scored one goal but it was visiting Oneonta taking a 2-1 win, Friday in State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) field hockey.

HOW IT HAPPENED

  • After a scoreless first half, the Red Dragons got on the board with 11:33 on the second-half clock when a Geneseo turnover at midfield led to a 2-on-1 Oneonta break finished off by first-year defender Jenna Dangler.
  • The Red Dragons added another goal less than five minutes later after senior midfielder Carissa Warren scored from in front of a crowded Geneseo goal with 6:57 on the clock.
  • The Knights scored with 1:27 remaining. Sophomore midfielder Jordan Penkitis inserted a ball from the top of the circle that Arcara redirected around the goalie from seven yards out.
