A quick three goal scoring burst late in the first half powered Wilson to a 5-1 victory over Medina this afternoon at Vets Park in a Niagara-Orleans League field hockey game.

A goal by Michelle Myers with 11 minutes to go in the opening half which snapped a scoreless deadlock ignited the decisive uprising.

Rachael Cobo followed up with two goals over the next seven minutes to quickly boost the Lakewomen’s advantage to 3-0.

Medina did get a goal in the final minute of the half by Dominique Hughes, off an assist from Mallori Wienke, but the Mustangs could get no closer.

Wilson put a lock on the victory on a pair of second half goals by Myers, the first on a penalty stroke.

Wilson improves to 2-4 and Medina slips to 0-5.
