Junior Hannah Dalle (Rochester, N.Y./Greece Olympia) also scored a goal, as did freshmen Haley Besaw (Pennellville, N.Y./Phoenix) and Kayla Spraggins (Runnemede, N.J./Paul VI) as the Wolfpack improved to 7-3 overall and 7-1 in the North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC).

Freshman Kenna Kosinski (Mumford, N.Y./Caledonia-Mumford) stopped three shots, and Kosinski and junior Sophia Dimkos (Camillus, N.Y./West Genesee) combined for the shutout, the fifth shutout in the Wolfpack's last six games.

The defense was led by David, Hartman and sophomores Kassandra Bailey (Fillmore, N.Y./Fillmore) and Kaitlyn Talbot (Hornell, N.Y./Arkport).

David staked the Wolfpack to a 1-0 lead when she buried a 40-yard free kick into the far corner of the net 10:09 into the game.

Freshman Nicole Browe (Kendall, N.Y./Kendall) nearly pushed the lead to 2-0 when she collected a rebound and sent a shot from 12 yards out that struck off the crossbar with 18:01 remaining in the first half.

David then set up the Green and Gold's second goal, which also came on a set play. David launched a corner kick in towards the box for freshman Sarah Hartman (Macedon, N.Y./Wayne). Hartman leapt and sent a header towards the near post for a 2-0 lead with 11:57 remaining in the opening half.

After a foul was called on Cobleskill in the goal area, David lined up for the kick and blasted home a goal towards the far post with 7:41 remaining in the first as the Wolfpack took a 3-0 lead into halftime.

Keuka College kept up the persistent attack in the second half. Kosinski's goal kick sailed to Hartman, who extended the lead to 4-0 in the 61st minute.

Off a rebound, Besaw collected the loose ball and pushed her shot inside the near post in the 69th minute for a 5-0 lead.

The Wolfpack closed out the scoring with two goals in a span of 5:15, with Dalle scoring on a breakaway in the 75th minute, and Spraggins adding an unassisted tally in the 80th minute.

The Green and Gold outshot Cobleskill 30-7 in winning for the seventh time in the last eight games.
