The Oswego State field hockey team is still searching for their first win of the season after falling to St. Lawrence University Friday night by a final score of 5-1. Due to inclement weather, the first game at Laker Turf Stadium this year was pushed from 7 p.m. to 8:40 p.m.

The Saints opened the scoring thanks to Jackie Reiss’s first goal of the season. That led the way for four more goals from the away team. One from Sonya Sandhu and three from Tori Shaffer. Finally in the 64th minute the Lakers were able to break through with Riley Mallet’s first goal of the season.
Lakers goalkeeper Sarita Charap stopped nine shots in the full 70 minutes while Lexi Oskam and Sophie Cardenali split time and combined for three saves for the Saints.
Oswego, now 0-2, will play their next game on Wednesday at home against Elmira College.
