The SUNY New Paltz field hockey team squan­dered a 3-1 sec­ond half lead to fall to No. 19 Kean, 4-3, Tues­day.

The Cougars opened up scor­ing in the sec­ond minute, but Jus­tine O’Reilly an­swered back just 30 sec­onds later.

Just be­fore half­time, Seren Capsello knocked in a goal off an as­sist from O’Reilly to give the Hawks the lead at the in­ter­mis­sion.

O’Reil­ley put in a third score in the 43rd minute to give New Paltz a 3-1 edge.

But then Kean’s of­fense an­swered with goals in the 47th and 60th min­utes to knot the score at 3-3.

Just two min­utes later, the un­de­feated Cougars struck again for the win­ning score hand­ing the Hawks their sec­ond straight loss to a Top 20-ranked foe.

Me­gan Gangewere had 15 saves in her fifth match on the sea­son with dou­ble digit stops, and her sec­ond straight with at least 12, for the (8-5) Hawks.
