Field hockey Lakers conquer Liverpool

Late goals by Chiarello, Silfer produce 2-0 win

— Just after Lamison hit a possible game-tying shot inches wide, Cazenovia pushed again on a fast break. This time, it was Jessy Silfer connecting from the right side, her goal with 5:30 left pushing the margin to two, where it would stay.

After the high-profile tournament win at Camden, and before the high-profile win at Liverpool, the Lakers would have a struggle finding offense in last Tuesday’s game at Weedsport, but still had enough to beat that other group of Warriors 2-0.

Just once in each half did the potent Laker attack manage to get shots past Weedsport goalie Abby Marsden, who made nine saves to keep it close.

Rachel McLaughlin and Hannah Light-Olson each converted for Cazenovia, while Silfer and Emily Willard picked up assists. In the net, Devine only had to make two saves.

The Liverpool game began another busy stretch – four games in seven days, including Tuesday’s trip to Rome Free Academy (rescheduled from a Sept. 8 weather postponement), a long-awaited return home Wednesday to face Cato-Meridian and a Friday trip to Port Byron.
