POUGHKEEPSIE — Annie Rosencrans '12 became the 11th player in program history to record 100 career points as the 6th-ranked Skidmore College field hockey team earned a 2-1 victory at Vassar.

The Thoroughbreds improve to 14-1 overall and finish the regular season a perfect 6-0 in Liberty League play. They have now won 20 straight against Liberty League opponents. The Brewers fall to 7-7 overall and 2-4 in the league.

Rosencrans tallied her 10th goal of the season at the 32:36 mark, redirecting a shot from the top from Katie Flowers '12 to make it 1-0. At the 53:33 mark, Kelly Blackhurst '14 scored her 21st of the season off a pass from Rosencrans, giving Rosencrans 100 career points.

Vassar cut the lead to 2-1 a few minutes later on a goal from Tina Caso, but the Thoroughbreds were able to hold on for the 2-1 victory.

Rosencrans became the first player to reach the century mark since Elise Britt '10 and Christine Kemp '11 each reached the milestone in the 2009 season.

Haley McDougall '15 earned the win in goal for Skidmore, while Maggie Brelis made 13 saves in the losing effort.

The Thoroughbreds outshot the Brewers 21-4 and held a 16-3 advantage in penalty corners.
