Michaela Ferguson’s two-goal performance was all Lakeland needed to secure the Hornets’ second win of the season, a 2-1 nail-biter at Putnam Valley Friday.
Ferguson scored the game’s first goal from 2 yards out on the right side with 15 minutes left in the first half.
While streaking down the field with the ball, Ferguson noticed Tigers goalie Alex Knight out of position.
“I believe she thought Michaela was going to make a cross pass,” Lakeland coach Jon Hourahan said. “But Micheala had the poise and awareness to take that shot.”
Her second goal came off a penalty kick with 18 minutes left in the game. The game was tied at 1-1 when Lakeland’s Krista Sawlor drew a foul in the box.
Ferguson nailed the ball to the upper right corner for the eventual game-winner.
Kaitlyn Heinrich and Julie Anna Smith each had five saves for the Hornets.
Andreana Vazeos had a goal for the Tigers. Alex Knight and Sarah Scocozza each had eight saves.
