The Keuka College women's soccer team dropped both games at the annual Erin K. Brozman Cup at Hartwick College over the weekend, falling 4-0 to Hartwick on Saturday before falling 3-2 in double overtime to Utica College Sunday.

In the 2014 opener, the Wolfpack surrendered a goal in the second minute and were down 3-0 after the Hawks scored twice in a span of five minutes midway through the opening half.

Hartwick capped the scoring on a goal less than one minute into the second half to prevail in the opener for both teams.

Freshman Kenna Kosinski (Mumford, N.Y./Caledonia-Mumford), making the first start of her collegiate career, made one save in 45 minutes of action. Junior Sophia Dimkos (Camillus, N.Y./West Genesee) entered in the second half and made four saves while allowing the one goal.

The Wolfpack were outshot 19-6 against the Hawks.

On Sunday, sophomore Carly Sanford (Macedon, N.Y./Palmyra-Macedon) and freshmanNicole Browe (Kendall, N.Y./Kendall) each scored goals as the Wolfpack (0-2) took a 2-1 lead. But the Pioneers (2-0) netted the equalizer in the 63rd minute and scored the game-winner with 3:51 remaining in the second overtime.

Neither squad scored during the first 15 minutes, but Utica took a 1-0 lead on Keri Berkowitz's tally in the 16th minute.

The Green and Gold knotted the score when sophomore Jordan Fredell (Wurtsboro, N.Y./Monticello) found Browe for a goal in the 33rd minute.

The score remained tied until the Wolfpack forged ahead midway through the second half. Sanford, a third-team All-NEAC midfielder in 2013, scored on a header off a feed from classmate Abbey David (Kendall, N.Y./Kendall) in the 62nd minute for a 2-1 lead.

The lead was short-lived, as one minute later Maddisen Melley scored the first of two goals to pull the Pioneers even.

Keuka College registered the final five shots of regulation, but could not beat Utica keeper Kelly Heimerle (11 saves), and the game went into overtime.

Kosinski, who finished with four saves, made a pair of big saves in the first overtime session to keep the game tied.

In the second overtime, the Wolfpack again dominated possession and outshot the Pioneers 6-1 through the first 3:15, but Melley netted the game-winner in the 107th minute to end the game.

The Wolfpack lost despite enjoying a 27-17 edge in shots. Keuka College travels to NEAC rival Wells College for a noon contest Saturday in the conference opener for both teams.
