Catherine Clark scored twice Thursday, but Oneonta State lost a non-conference women’s lacrosse game, 7-6, at 20th-ranked Hamilton College.
The Continentals’ Morgan Fletcher scored the decisive goal with 4 minutes, 28 seconds left, snapping a 6-all tie with a shot that beat O-State goalie Amanda Reichardt (19 saves).
Hamilton won the ensuing draw control, setting up a shot that Reichardt saved. The Red Dragons had three possessions over the final 4:04 but turned the ball over twice and went 0-for-2 in shots.
Hannah Rubin made two saves in the second half to earn the victory in goal for Hamilton (4-3), which rallied from a 4-1 deficit in the opening period. Reichardt stopped 12 of Hamilton’s first 13 shots.
