T·liE:· PRB~ss. \· October 10, 1986 ·~ ~- -. ~' ' - B '·· . . · .ooterswm The top-ranked Cortland State women's soccer team erased any signs .of a scoring slump Saturday afternoon when the they pounded visiting New Paltz State 7-.0 .to insure themselves at least a tie for the SUNY AC Eastern Division title. \For the first 15 minutes we played the way Wf; had been playing,\ explained Cortland coach Chris Malone, \Then all of a sud- den, Kim Berglund got a great pass to Joan Easton for a goal and we broke things open.\ Two minutes later, sophomore· back Chris Thebo netted her first goal of the season. Another two minutes and senior Cathy Klein assisted another All- America midfielder Marie McKeon for a 3-0 lead: · Five minutes elapsed before Thebo hammered home her second tally. Berglund, who's leading Cortland scorers as a freshman forward, scored one minute into the second half. A Berglund cross was li:eaded in by Klein, midway through the half b.efore Michelle Martin tallied her first collegiate goal in the _ warning minutes to play. The Red Dragons outshot New Paltz 32-2 and bad a 10-2 edge in cornerkicks. Cortland used three goali'es, Jill Goris, Kim O'Brien and Diane Wright, none of whom had to .make a save. \I thought our backs - Chris Thebo, Jen Courtney and T'She Looney - all played well,\ Malone said. \I moved Joan Easton from outside to center mid- field and moved Cathy Klein outside. It seemed to make Cathy Klein more effective.\ The Dragons, 8-1-2, travel to Ithaca Coll!!ge Wednesday before leaving for Colorado for the weekend. Red Dragon booter Kim Berglund leaves her opponent behind. Cortland rugby is.back on campus By JOHN WA<;NER After over a years hiatus, the Cortland State Men's Rugby Football Club is back.
