O-State field hockey loses SUNYAC semi in OT

Staff Report

Talk about instant replay.

Oneonta State gave up the tying goal with no time left in regulation, then lost in overtime, 2-1, to top-seeded host Cortland in a SUNY Athletic Conference Field Hockey Tournament semifinal Friday.

The loss marked Oneonta’s second in a row against Cortland, which won their regular-season meeting, 3-2 in double-overtime. Cortland tied the score at 2 in that Oct. 26 home game off a penalty corner that was awarded as time expired in regulation.

Outside of the score, the same scenario played out Friday as Cortland received a penalty corner at the end of regulation. Erin Smith passed to Karly Vdoviak, who lifted the ball over O-State goalie Tess Tracy to tie the score at 1 and force overtime.

Vdoviak followed with her 10th goal of the season, one-timing in a pass from Jillian Vogl 7 minutes, 42 seconds into the extra period as Cortland advanced to host the championship match against New Paltz at 1:30 p.m. Saturday. New Paltz beat Geneseo, 3-1, in Friday’s other semifinal.

Cortland (14-2), which is ranked 14th among NCAA Division III teams, fell into a 1-0 hole when Andrea Day scored a little less than four minutes into the second half. Sierra Earle’s cross set up Day for a one-timer in front of the Cortland cage that beat goalie Mairead Hourihan (one save).

Tracy made 17 saves for fourth-seeded O-State (12-8), which received two defensive saves from Jessica Hodes and another from Stephanie Fiske.

Cortland finished with advantages of 32-4 in shots and 20-2 in penalty corners.
