Field Hockey Takes Down Washington & Jefferson, 3-1

WASHINGTON, Pa. – SUNY Geneseo senior forward Elisa Arcara scored two goals to lead the Knights to a 3-1 victory at Washington & Jefferson, Saturday. 

HOW IT HAPPENED 

  • The teams were scoreless into the second quarter before the Presidents got on the board with 4:45 left in the half. 
  • Just over three minutes later, junior defender Kelly McKeveny flipped a ball from the top of the arc into a crowd in front of the W&J goal on a restart. Arcara came up with a loose ball and scored on a five-yard shot to knot the score heading into halftime. 
  • Geneseo was awarded a penalty corner with seconds remaining in the third quarter. Senior forward Erin Nolan received a pass just outside the left post and scored on a short finish as the quarter expired. 
  • The Knights were awarded a penalty stroke with under nine minutes remaining in regulation after the Presidents' goalie came off her line and was called for a foul inside the arc during a Geneseo push. Arcara scored to put the game out of reach. 

GAME NOTES

  • Geneseo finished with a 14-4 shooting advantage, including a 12-3 edge in shots on goal. 
  • The Knights earned 10 penalty corners to the Presidents' three. 
  • Sophomore goalie Natalie Chojnacki made two saves to earn the victory.
