Taglieri’s Late Goal Gives Presidents 1-0 Triumph
WASHINGTON, Pa. – Junior midfielder Gina Taglieri (Huntington Beach, Calif./Huntington Beach) slammed home a shot with 5:38 remaining to give Washington & Jefferson a 1-0 Empire 8 field hockey win over Hartwick Saturday morning on Homecoming Day at Cameron Stadium.
The Presidents (8-3, 1-1 E8) outshot the Hawks (2-7, 0-3 E8) by a 25-1 margin, but could not get a shot past goalie Shannon Carter until senior defender Tori Patrick (State College, Pa./State College) set up Taglieri late off a penalty corner.
W&J attempted all 17 penalty corners during the match and sophomore Morgan Brozena (Telford, Pa./Souderton) made the save on the only shot she faced. Carter turned back 11 shots for Hartwick.
Washington & Jefferson continues conference play next Saturday in Pittsford, N.Y., versus St. John Fisher (11:00 am).
