Field Hockey Tops Brockport, 4-0, For 6-0 SUNYAC Sweep

GENESEO, N.Y. - SUNY Geneseo junior midfielder Jordan Penkitis and first-year forward Maggie Phipps each tallied a goal and an assist to lead the Knights over visiting Brockport, 4-0, in State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) field hockey play at College Stadium, Wednesday afternoon.

HOW IT HAPPENED

  • Junior defender Jordan Penkitis drove the ball inside the circle on the right and found first-year forward Cara O'Shea in front for a short re-direct past the Golden Eagle goalie in the ninth minute of action. 
  • Phipps completed a long run through the Brockport defense for a short finish in the 18th minute.
  • Penkitis beat a defender down the right side, turned toward the goal mouth and scored on a six-yard backhander with just over a minute to play in the first half. 
  • Three minutes into the third quarter, Phipps collected a rebound on the right side and dropped a pass to junior forward Haley Clark, who fired a hard shot off a defender's stick into the cage. 

QUICK FACTS

  • Phipps has scored eight goals in the Knights' past four games and shares the team lead with Clark at 12 goals apiece. 
  • Geneseo owns a 7-0 record at home this season, outscoring opponents 40-3 in games played at College Stadium.
  • The Knights completed the regular season unbeaten in conference play for just the second time in program history (2010).
