The Oswego State field hockey team gave Heather Moore her first win as the head coach after defeating Elmira College by a score of 5-4.
Playing on their home turf, the Lakers were the first to get on the board, courtesy of a goal by Jordan Sheehy. After the Soaring Eagles tied it up just over ten minutes later, Monica Harvey scored her first goal for Oswego. Elmira would score again to send the game into a 2-2 tie at the half.
In the second half, Elmira scored quickly to give themselves a one point lead. That would not remain for long though as Harvey connected with Katie Reynolds to even the game. Harvey finished the night with a career-best seven points including two goals and three assists. Her last point came in the 63rd minute on what turned out to be the game-winning goal by Kendra Walker.
Lakers goalie Sarita Charap stopped 22 shots in the full 70 minutes with her defense also stopping three shots. Julie Hockenberger finished with five saves for the Soaring Eagles.
Oswego, now 1-2, will look to continue their winning ways on the road against Wells College on Saturday.
