Four minutes into the game, McCartney one-touched a bouncing ball, driving it low into the left side of the goal from 20 yards out.  The score held at 1-0 until the final minute of the first half. Michelle Schafer’s well-struck corner kick found its way through a crowd and into the net for Lansing’s second goal.

Trumansburg’s best scoring chance came late in the first half when the Trumansburg midfield launched a 30-yard pass to a breaking Hannah Morpurgo.  Morpurgo’s well-timed run looked like a sure breakaway, but Lansing keeper Sarah Gisler anticipated the pass, and made a strong tackle at the 30-yard line to break up the play.

In the second half, McCartney spotted freshman Kassie Riemer unmarked at the top of the 18-yard box.  Riemer controlled McCartney’s pass, turned and fired a left-footed blast for Lansing’s 3rd goal of the game.

Goalkeeper Maddy Mikula had 12 saves for Trumansburg.  The Lansing defense did not allow any shots on goal.

Lansing improves to 9-3 for the year.
