No. 2 Cortland Escapes Union with One-Goal Victory

Cortland freshman Nate Beresovoy scored the game winner with his blast from 12 yards out that snuck just under the crossbar with 2:21 left.

Union had one last opportunity to tied the contest, but was called for a crease violation with 23 seconds left.

Despite being outshot, 50-24, Union's defense held steady and held the Red Dragons scoreless during the first quarter. Stefan Basile finished with 18 saves for the Dutchmen. Cortland (2-0) was led offensively by Nate Garbarino and Benjamin Dunlavey, who notched two goals apiece.

"This team today played as hard as any team that I have coached," said Union Head Coach Paul Wehrum, a Cortland alumnus. "The team played really inspired and while I'm not pleased with a loss, the effort from our team was outstanding."

The Garnet and White return to action on Wednesday (March 5), traveling to SUNY Oneonta.
