CANTON, N.Y. – Junior Shianne Stokes (Mays Landing, N.J.) tipped in a pass from senior Cat Taylor (Jackson, N.J.) for the lone Express goal as the Wells College field hockey team posted a 4-1 loss to St. Lawrence on Sunday at the North Country Field. Wells (2-3) snaps a two-game winning streak with the result while St. Lawrence evens its overall record at 2-2.

Trailing 4-0 in the game's 61st minute, Stokes tipped home a long left-to-right strike from Taylor off of a penalty corner for their team's lone goal of the afternoon. Collectively, St. Lawrence outshot the Express by a 28-to-10 margin and held the decisive edge in penalty corners, 22-to-7.
