The Red Dragons scored on one of their 11 corner-kick opportunities. Amanda Regensburger served a bender from the right corner that was punched out by Rams’ keeper Breanna Blair. The ball landed at the feet of Lyden, who scored from 8 yards for her sixth goal of the season.
The Rams (13-10) threatened to tie it on a shot by Mary Armstrong in the 88th minute, but Stark pushed the ball into the crossbar before her defense cleared it.
Stark finished with four saves — three fewer than Blair — for the Red Dragons, who finished with advantages of 12-5 in shots and 11-3 in corner kicks.
Oberlin 2, O-State 0
Oneonta State’s season ended Saturday at the University of Rochester with a first-round loss in the NCAA Division III Tournament as Oberlin received second-half goals from John Ingham and Nick Wertman to advance.
Ingham opened the scoring in the 66th minute with a penalty kick that resulted from a handball inside the box.
Sam Winward sent a header off a corner kick toward the top-left corner of Oneonta’s goal, narrowly beating Oneonta goalie Daniel DeBottis. O-State’s Mitchell Cain then used his hands to block the ball, drawing a red card and setting up the first-time NCAA qualifier Yeomen (14-3-4) for a penalty kick in the process.
Ingham then beat DeBottis (three saves) at 65:14 to give Oberlin a 1-0 lead.
Wertman made it 2-0 in the 88th minute, scoring into the lower-left of Oneonta’s goal off a lateral pass from Ari Schwartz.
Brandt Rentel made 13 saves for the shutout as Oneonta (11-5-4) lost despite finishing with a 27-8 advantage in shots.
“This result kind of sums up our season,” O-State coach Ian Byrne said in a media release from the college. “We can’t put the ball in the net in a big game. It’s hard to believe we lost.”
