KEUKA PARK, N.Y. — The Keuka College Field Hockey team completed a perfect 3-0 season in the North Eastern Athletic Conference on Thursday by defeated Lancaster Bible College 8-0 at the Jephson Community Athletic Complex.

It was also senior day for Keuka College (5-9, 3-0 NEAC) and the trio played a big role in the game. Alyssa Orsino scored three goals to pace the Wolves. Darian Hurwitz had a pair of assists and Madison St. Onge added an assist as well in the win.

After a scoreless first fifteen minutes of play, the Wolves took the lead over the Chargers. Off of a corner, Keuka looked for Darian Hurwitz on the right post. The pass skipped over the stick, but the senior collected the ball on the end line. She passed it back into the middle to Rielly Albee. Albee beat the keeper for the 1-0 advantage. In the final minutes of the first half, Alyssa Orsino found the back of the goal twice to give the Wolves a 3-0 lead at the half.

Orsino completed the hat trick seven minutes into the second half as she took a pass from Albee and beat the goalie for her third goal of the game. The Wolves would continue to pour on the offense in the second half. Madison St. Onge set up Nicole Wilson for a goal and Alyssa Muszak scored the first of her career. The scoring was capped with tallies by Tori Gutzmer and Lexi Appleby as the Wolves defeated the Chargers 8-0.
