Roundup: Christopher Newport scores seven goals in rout
GENEVA, N.Y.-- St. Lawrence scored its first goal in the 16th minute, and added two more goals late in the second half to defeat Hobart 3-0 in a Liberty League match played on Cozzens Field this afternoon.
The Saints remain unbeaten with an 11-0-0 overall mark, and a 4-0-0 record in Liberty League play. The Statesmen (10-2-0, 2-2-0 Liberty) suffered their second loss of the year.
The Saints played without another senior forward as Sean Scott missed the game after sustaining a knee injury in a win at Bard last weekend.
Sophomore midfielder Andrew Bednarsky opened the scoring when he took a pass from junior Sam DeMello, broke through the defense and shot into the right corner 15:35 into the game. The Saints and Statesmen were even in shots at 3-3 in the first half and the Saints had the only two shots on goal.
