Hartwick water polo wins opener


Keuka (13-2) is 10-1 in conference.

Cobleskill (5-14) dropped to 4-7 in the NEAC. The Fighting Tigers were led by senior Heidi Anderson, who scored 21 points.

Cobleskill will host SUNYIT at 5 p.m. Wednesday.

Wells 74, Cobleskill 60

Tracee Schiebel and Kady Porterfield scored 16 points apiece, but visiting SUNY Cobleskill lost a North Eastern Athletic Conference game.

Alexis Hauser had 10 points and Samantha Davis grabbed 10 rebounds for the Fighting Tigers, who were outscored, 39-22, over the final 17 minutes.

Cooperstown graduate Holli Erkson had four rebounds, four assists and three points for Wells (9-9, 8-2), which received 17 points from Ashley Roser.

Ithaca 53, Hartwick 45

Maria Foglia scored a game-high 18 points, but also had six of Hartwick College’s 17 turnovers as the visiting Hawks suffered their first Empire 8 loss of the season.

The Hawks (15-4), who had their eight-game winning streak snapped, fell to 7-1 in conference. Ithaca (16-2) is 8-1 in the E8.

“It was another good defensive battle,” Hartwick coach Missy West said in a media release sent by the school. “Our turnovers hurt us as Ithaca scored 18 points off of them alone. We did a good job on the glass, but we forced too many bad shots on offense.”

Freshman Brittney Dumas contributed 12 points and Kate Purcell finished with eight for Hartwick, which was held to its season low for points.

Ithaca, led by Devin Shea’s 17 points, slowly pulled away thereafter.

Hartwick will travel to Stevens on Tuesday. The Hawks won the first meeting, 59-57.

Geneseo 57, O-State 51

Host Geneseo closed on a 12-2 run to win in the SUNY Athletic Conference.

The Red Dragons (8-10, 5-6) had their four-game winning streak snapped. O-State’s Alyshia Crawford capped a 12-point run on a three-pointer that gave the Red Dragons a 49-45 lead.

The score was tied at 51 with 2:50 to play before Geneseo scored the final six points from the free throw line.
