Fayetteville-Manlius girls lacrosse senior star records 200th career point in win over Liverpool

Senior standout Julianna Cogliandro was not only one of the best for the Fayetteville-Manlius girls lacrosse team, but in the program’s history.

Cogliandro continued her incredible career on Thursday when she recorded her 200th career point in the Hornets’ 12-11 win over Liverpool.

The senior finished with a goal, four assists and eight draws. Her milestone came on an assist in the second half. Cogliandro has 156 goals and 45 assists in her career.

“As a coach, it’s so nice to see (the milestone) happen after five assists,” FM coach Leah Tuck said. “It shows what type of player JuJu is. She realizes she can reach feeds and teammates for success. She can easily bury the ball and put it in the net, but she chooses to share.”

Cogliandro and the Hornets were locked in a battle with Liverpool on Thursday. FM led 11-8 in the fourth quarter, but three consecutive goals from Liverpool made it 11-11.

Then, with about three minutes left in regulation time, sophomore Brooke Southwick shook off Liverpool’s defenders and scorched a shot that was out of the goalkeeper’s reach for the go-ahead goal.

“(Southwick) executed it so beautifully. She did it with amazing finesse,” Tuck said. “Our offense is evolving with multiple threats, and she is one of them. She gains more confidence every time.”

FM goalkeeper Micaela Jennings, who finished with nine saves, stopped a potential tying shot with 1.5 seconds left. The junior closed the door on any potential Liverpool threat.

FM (7-6), now winners of three of their last four games, bounced back from a seven-goal loss to Liverpool on April 23.

“It was a super close game the whole game (on Thursday). We just had to put together a great game of lacrosse,” Tuck said. “We played our best game yet. The team really executed a game plan. It was a huge team effort.”

Taylor Novack had four goals, an assist, four ground balls, six draw checks and four forced turnovers for the Hornets. Kathryn McNany also scored four goals.

“Today several players did their best. It took the pressure off our top scorers,” Tuck said. “Our defense played great against Liverpool’s difficult attacking sets.”

For Liverpool, Gianna Carbone had four goals, an assist, four ground balls and three draw controls. Mia Berthoff scored three goals, four assists and three ground balls. Maura Woods added two goals and three draw controls.

FM will take on Pittsford Sutherland of Section V on Saturday at 5 p.m. Liverpool (5-8) will host Webster Thomas of Section V on Saturday at 1 p.m.
