KEUKA PARK, N.Y. – Darian Staufer scored a pair of goals and assisted on a third to help lead Keuka College to a North Eastern Athletic Conference victory over Wilson College 3-0.

The goals were the first for Staufer in a Keuka uniform. The five point game was a career-high. She set up Hannah Dalle for the first goal. Dalle returned the favor, getting the assist on Staufer's first goal. Nicole Browe got the assists on Staufer's second goal.

Keuka (4-5-1, 3-2 NEAC) will be back in action on Sunday as they host Gallaudet University at 3pm.

Keuka controlled the run of play for a majority of the first half. Keuka College broke through for the opening goal of the match. Darian Staufer took the ball down the middle of the field. Her through ball found the right foot of Hannah Dalle. Her shot beat the goalie in the 17th minute for the 1-0 lead. Keuka continued to attack the Phoenix net. Keuka outshot Wilson (2-5-1, 1-4 NEAC) 10-0, but Dalle's tally would be the only goal of the half as the halftime whistle sounded.

Keuka College continued to dictate the play in the second half. The Wolfpack got on the board again in the 74th minute. Hannah Dalle found Darien Staufer on a cross. The freshman found the back of the net for her first collegiate goal. Minutes later, Staufer doubled up, scoring her second of the game in the 80th minute. Nicole Browe got the assist for Keuka as they would go on to win the match 3-0.
