The Keuka College Women’s Lacrosse team set a new single-game record in defeating Penn St.-Abington 27-3 on Friday in a North Eastern Athletic Conference game.

The 27 goals set a new record for Keuka College (13-1, 7-1 NEAC), topping the previous record of 26 that the Wolves reached three times earlier this season. Madelaine Taylor (Oswego) led the way with six goals. Kendall Neuberger (Penn Yan) was right behind her with five goals, but it was Sydney Bloom (Penn Yan) who led the team in points. The freshman had nine total points with three goals and six assists.

Keuka College took the early lead as Madelaine Taylor and Sydney Bloom opened the scoring for the Wolves. Penn St.-Abington got on the board five minutes in to make it 2-1, but the Wolves went on a run. The Green and Gold scored the next 11 goals as Keuka College opened up a 13-1 lead. After the Nittany Lions snapped the run, Kendall Neuberger and Madelaine Taylor each scored as the Wolves led 15-2 at the half.

The second half started much like the first where the Wolves scored the first two goal and then Penn St.-Abington scored five minutes into the frame. However, it would be the final goal of the game for the Nittany Lions. Keuka scored the 10 goals of the game with Julianne Wilkinson (Cohoes, N.Y. / Cohoes) scoring the record-setting goal as the Wolves defeated the Nittany Lions 27-3 on Friday.
