OSWEGO — Lauren Cobello’s goal with 11:34 remaining broke a scoreless tie and Kristen Fusco added a late goal to help SUNY Oswego edge New Paltz, 2-0, in SUNYAC field hockey on Friday afternoon.
Former Red Hook High standout Danielle Luffman – now an Oswego freshman – assisted on Cobello’s game winner. Fusco’s insurance goal came with just six seconds left in regulation.
Meanwhile, New Paltz freshman Liz Clarke, a Rondout Valley High graduate, had another strong performance in goal, collecting 26 saves in her first match since being named the ECAC Division III Field Hockey Goalkeeper of the Week.
