CORTLAND, N.Y. - Six different players scored goals as the nationally sixth-ranked Cortland field hockey team defeated Morrisville St., 7-0, Friday afternoon in SUNYAC action at the SUNY Cortland Stadium Complex. The Red Dragons improved to 6-0 overall and 1-0 in the conference with the win, and the Mustangs dropped to 3-3 and 0-1.

Freshman Danielle Groneman (East Islip) led the Red Dragons with two goals and an assist, while junior Brenda Semit (Holland Patent) recorded a goal and two assists. Sophomore Danielle Hand (Whitney Point) scored her team-high sixth goal of the season, freshman Sara Woodward (Pine Plains) tallied her fourth goal of the season and freshmen Katie Barbagallo (North Syracuse/Cicero-North Syracuse) and Emily O'Gorman (Williamsville/Williamsville North) each scored her first collegiate goal. Junior goalie Ashley Hughes (Selden/Comsewogue) did not need to make a save in the opening half before giving way to freshman Emily von Schondorf (Webster/Webster Thomas), who stopped two shots over the final 35 minutes.

Senior goalie Stephanie Smith (Cedarville/Mount Markham) turned aside 18 shots in 55 minutes, four seconds of action, including 13 in the first half, for Morrisville St. Freshman goalie Kelsey Pellegrino (Cicero/Cicero-North Syracuse) played the final 14:56 and did not allow a goal while stopping two shots.

The Red Dragons opened up a 4-0 lead at the half as they bunched all four goals in an 11-minute span. Semit opened the scoring with a penalty stroke shot inside the right post at the 10:50 mark. Three minutes later, Semit assisted Groneman's spinning backhand shot on the right side. At 15:25, Groneman assisted on Hand's one-time goal right in front, and Woodward made it 4-0 six and a half minutes later when her shot deflected off a Mustang player and over Smith's shoulder.

Semit collected her second assist of the day on Barbagallo's deflection into an open goal 5:05 into the second half. Groneman stretched the lead to 6-0 with her second tally, scoring on a long, low blast after a long carry down the field. O'Gorman completed the scoring at 50:32 when she buried a hard shot inside the left post.

Cortland out shot Morrisville St., 34-3, in the game, including 24-1 in the opening half, and held a 20-1 advantage on penalty corners.
