Sophomores Kayla Ceschini and Jessica Lyden scored in the first half Wednesday, leading Oneonta State past host Hartwick College, 4-0, in a non-conference women’s soccer game that closed its regular season.
Ceschini opened the scoring in the 30th minute, collecting a Hartwick goal kick and dribbling into the 18-yard box to set up her fifth goal of the season.
Less than three minutes later, Lyden tracked down a loose ball in the box following a corner kick by classmate Liz Lasota and scored for a 2-0 lead.
Seniors Amanda Regensburger and Melissa Guglielmo contributed second-half goals for the Red Dragons (10-4-3), who got an assist from senior Karly DeSimone.
Regensburger scored her third goal of the season in the 70th minute and Guglielmo made it 4-0 less than two minutes later off a pass from DeSimone.
Goalies Becky Fildes and Kelley Murphy combined on the shutout for O-State, which finished with advantages of 17-5 in shots and 10-0 in corner kicks against the Hawks (7-7-3).
The Red Dragons are off until hosting an 11 a.m. SUNY Athletic Conference Tournament semifinal Nov. 6. Regular-season SUNYAC champion Oneonta will play Brockport or Oswego, who will play a quarterfinal this Saturday.
