Senior Kaycee Maguire (Potsdam, N.Y./Potsdam) dominated at both ends of the field as the Keuka College women's lacrosse team remained undefeated in North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) play thanks to Wednesday's 13-8 road win over Cazenovia College.
Maguire scored a career-high 5 goals and also collected 9 groundballs while winning 7 draw controls to lift the Wolfpack (6-2, 4-0 NEAC).
Senior Olivia Hudson (Adams, N.Y./South Jefferson) added 2 points (one goal, one assist), collected 7 groundballs and caused 2 turnovers for the Wolfpack, who trailed 4-1 after six minutes before closing the half on an 8-0 run.
Sophomore Kayla Robinson (Penn Yan, N.Y./Penn Yan) made eight saves to improve to 5-0.
Abby Webster and MacKenzie Bresett each scored two goals in the opening 6:11 as the Wildcats jumped out to a 4-1 lead. Maguire scored off a feed from freshman Gabrielle Moshier (Johnson City, N.Y./Johnson City) to trim the lead to 3-1, but Bresett's second tally extended the Cazenovia lead to three goals.
The Green and Gold then clamped down and held the Wildcats scoreless for the next 32 minutes bridging both halves. Maguire pumped in four goals, Forshay had two goals, and Burt and Hudson each added a goal as Keuka used an 8-0 run to end the half up 9-4.
Burt scored Keuka's first two goals of the second half, but Cazenovia cut the lead to 11-8 on Kaitlin Sheppard's goal with 18:34 remaining.
The Wolfpack defense, led by Willsey, Moshier, seniors Maggie Mercurio (Whitesboro, N.Y./Whitesboro) and Anna Patton (Newark, N.Y./Newark) and sophomore Samantha Peacock (Phelps, N.Y./Midlakes) held Cazenovia scoreless for the final 18:34.
Forshay scored twice in a span of 1:25 to put away the Wildcats.
The Wolfpack host SUNY Polytechnic at 1 p.m. Saturday in the first Cystic Fibrosis Awareness game.
