Woodward leads Cortland past Morrisville State field hockey

MORRISVILLE, N.Y. – Sophomore Sarah Woodward (Pine Plains, NY) scored twice and assisted another to lead visiting nationally ranked SUNY Cortland past Morrisville State field hockey Friday afternoon in Morrisville. The contest was the State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) opener for both squads.

Woodward put the Red Dragons on the board 8:42 into the contest, tipping a shot from Brenda Semit (Holland Patent, NY) on a penalty corner past Morrisville State keeper Kelsey Pellegrino (Cicero, NY).

Less than three minutes later, Woodward fired a shot at Pellegrino and Danielle Hand (Whitney Point, NY) collected the rebound to extend the Cortland lead to two.

Minutes into the second half, Woodward added her second goal of the afternoon, tipping a blocked shot into the cage for the score.

Ashley Hughes (Selden, NY) made four stops in the win for the Red Dragons, who remain undefeated at 5-0 (1-0 in SUNYAC action).

Pellegrino recorded the loss in net, saving 11 for Morrisville State who falls to 2-3 overall (0-1 SUNYAC).

Cortland held the 33-9 advantage in shots and 17-3 advantage in penalty corners over the Mustangs.

Morrisville State returns to the field Sunday, hosting RPI at 1 p.m. on Drake Field.
