York College's Anna Lales scored the second goal of the Cardinals 3-2 win over Sarah Lawrence College.

One young Cardinal proved that she can fly.

Freshman Daisy Narvaez scored two goals for York College, leading the Cardinals to a, 3-2, victory over Sarah Lawrence College on Thursday, giving the team its first win of the season.

Already leading 2-1 going into the 53rd minute, Narvaez scored her second goal off a loose ball inside the box to give the Cardinals (1-1 CUNY Athletic Conference) a commanding lead.

Sarah Lawrence (0-2) responded with a goal in the final minute of the game, but it wasn’t enough to make a comeback.

York dominated the game throughout. Narvaez scored the first goal in the sixth minute, after receiving teammate Jessica Cornejo’s corner kick and the Cardinals jumped to a 2-0 lead in the 35th minute, when Cornejo connected with Anna Lales after a free kick.

Now with their first victory behind them the Cardinals will set their sights on their next opponents, Rutgers-Newark on Saturday.
