PLATTSBURGH — After getting their first win of the season the day before, the Cougars (1-3) had a rough time of it against the Lakers.

Rachel Hefner and Brittany Maggio scored goals 42 seconds apart late in the first half to help give Finger Lakes C.C. its victory.

“We knew one of their forwards was a top scorer and we played defensively,” Clinton coach Kaila Sciascia said. “We marked her in the first half, but then we had a breakdown when they scored their first goal.

“Then, they scored right after that and it was the second or third time this season it has happened to us. We dug ourselves a deeper hole.”

Rachel Graves added a penalty kick midway through the second half and Amonie DiRoma finished off the Finger Lakes scoring with 14:44 remaining in the contest.

The Cougars were unable to get a shot on goal as Finger Lakes finished with a 31-0 shot advantage. Courtney Backus made 16 saves for Clinton.

“They were good and they possessed the ball well,” Sciascia said. “We got outplayed and chased the ball around. When we did get possession, we would give it right back to them.

“We’re not happy with the result, but we’ll continue to work at it.”

The Cougars are at Fulton-Montgomery Community College on Wednesday.
