GENESEO, N.Y. - SUNY Geneseo first-year midfielder Maddie Lee scored two goals, but it was top-ranked Cortland snapping the Knights' eight-game winning-streak with a 16-4 defeat, Thursday, in State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) women's lacrosse action.
Lee's second goal of the game pulled Geneseo (9-4, 4-1 SUNYAC) within a goal, 3-2, with 12:58 on the first-half clock, but back to back tallies by Red Dragon (14-0, 6-0) senior midfielder Elizabeth LaComb put the visitors up, 5-2, at 10:52.
Geneseo sophomore midfielder Erin Cregan scored an unassisted goal with 4:23 on the clock before Cortland answered 17 seconds later with what proved to be the first of a 9-0 run into the second half that proved to be the difference.
Red Dragon senior midfielder Tara Monaghan finished the game with six goals, while junior attack Kristen Ohberg added three goals and three assists as Cortland (14-0, 6-0 SUNYAC) remained undefeated in 2016 while extending its unbeaten streak to 33 games dating back to last year's national-championship run.
Geneseo senior goalie Claudia Coleates stopped a season-high 11 shots, but it wasn't enough as Cortland became the first Knights' opponent this season to reach double-figures in goals.
Geneseo returns to action on Saturday for a 1:00 p.m contest at Potsdam.
