Worcester, Mass. - Senior tri-captain Molly Corkery (Salisbury, Conn.) netted the game-winning goal and added an assist to lead the Crusaders over Wesleyan, 2-1, Tuesday night at the Hart Center in a non-conference game.

After trailing by one, freshman Parnell Ormiston (Duxbury, Mass.) evened the score at 12:38 in the second when she fired a shot from the top of the slot with help from Corkery and freshman Katherine Falkowski (East Sandwich, Mass.).

With 3:29 left in play, Corkery, positioned in front of the crease, squeezed the puck past Wesleyan netminder Meredith Katz (New Canaan, Conn.) to put the Crusaders up, 2-1. Freshmen Samantha Rush (Wakefield, Mass.) and Samantha Murphy (Canton, Mass.) assisted on the play.

The Cardinals jumped on the first at 12:06 in first when senior Anna Siliciano (Ithaca, N.Y.) scored from just outside the top of the left face-off circle after a breakaway. She was assisted by newcomer Julia Kazmers (Petoksey, Mich.).

Sophomore Casey McCullion (Philadelphia, Pa.) made 12 saves for the win, while Katz halted 18 shots on goal.
