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.

Queens and every New York Mets fan is celebrating as Johan Santana has completed the first no-hitter in franchise history. In more than 8,000 games 36 Mets pitchers threw one-hitters.

Santana completed a magnificent performance on Friday, June 1 against the St. Louis Cardinals winning by a score of 8-0.

This game will live in infamy for all Mets fans who are still riding high on the recent announcement of the 2013 All Star Game taking place at Citi Field.

Santana threw 134 pitches and walked 5 in nine innings.

Queens native right fielder Mike Baxter made a diving catch against the left field wall suffering an injury to his shoulder and apparent concussion to save the n0-no in the seventh inning.

Making the victory even more sweet for Mets fans was that this was Carlos Beltran’s first return to Flushing.

“It was a crazy night,” said Santana at the post game press conference.

It certainly will be for Mets fans in Queens and beyond.
