 STATE COLLEGE – Under a threatening sky, State College fought and won a strongly contested match with Central Dauphin. The first period ended with the score tied in spite of several strong offensive plays by both teams. Finally, State College’s Joelle Bartlett received the ball from Hannah Garlin and scored the first goal at 1:03 in period 2 with a sharp shot hit with great authority to the right post.

State College’s Carly Erickson scored the first of her two goals of the night at 14:16 in period 2 hitting the ball home after a textbook assisting feed by Olivia Miller. Miller dribbled the ball up field, into the circle, and passed to Erickson who shot behind the Central Dauphin goalie to the left post. At 1:22 in the period 4, the duo of Erickson and Miller combined again for what seemed like a repeat of the first goal. Miller carving through the Rams defense, finding Erickson ready and pouncing to score.

Central Dauphin’s Maya Williams put one in the net at 10:37 in the fourth period after a brilliantly executed broken-field run from near midfield to the goal. Williams showcased her running and stick-handling skills on several occasions, winding through and around defending players. However, in all but one instance, a staunch last line of defense led by State College goalie Molly Schreiner prevented any scores. Schreiner stopped a Central Dauphin penalty stroke with 7:14 to go in the game.

The win tonight, secures State College’s 1st place finish in the Mid-Penn Conference Commonwealth division.
