Cardinals Blank Presidents In Pittsford
PITTSFORD, N.Y. – St. John Fisher scored all three of its goals during a five-minute span in the first half and earned a 3-0 Empire 8 Conference field hockey victory over Washington & Jefferson on Saturday afternoon at Growney Stadium.
The Cardinals (6-5, 3-1 E8) received their first two goals off the stick of Elizabeth Cusack. She struck first at the 24:46 mark and then again 4:11 later. Stacie Skidmore added the third goal just 13 seconds after Cusack’s second tally.
St. John Fisher peppered W&J sophomore goalie Kira Bunker (Magnolia, Del./Polytech) with 18 first-half shots before the Presidents limited SJF to three during the final 35 minutes. Bunker posted 12 saves in the first half.
Danielle Famolaro stopped five shots for the Cardinals, who held a 21-10 overall edge in shots.
W&J (8-4, 1-2 E8) hopes to get back on track next Saturday with another trip to New York to battle Elmira at 1:00 pm.
