Southern Maine Falls at UMass Dartmouth 20-15

DARTMOUTH, Mass. -- Senior Colleen Kane (Arlington, Mass.) scored a pair of goals 12 seconds apart to spark a run of six consecutive goals by the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth and the Corsairs went on to defeat the visiting University of Southern Maine Huskies 20-15 in a Little East Conference women’s lacrosse match Saturday afternoon at Cressy Field.

The win snapped a two-game losing skid for the Corsairs, and improved their record to 5-4 overall and 1-1 in LEC play. The Huskies fall to 1-6 overall, and 0-2 in the conference, with their sixth straight loss since defeating Husson University in the season opener.

With the game tied 12-12, Kane converted a free-position attempt at 18:46 to give the Corsairs the lead for good. The Corsairs got possession off the ensuing draw and sophomore Leah Douty (Framingham, Mass.) fed Kane for her 41st goal of the season.

Douty pushed the lead to 16-12 with two goals 1:09 seconds apart, the second goal coming on a free-position attempt,. Kane was successful on yet another free-position try at 13:48, and Douty added an unassisted marker at 12:40 to make it 18-12.

The Huskies cut the deficit in half getting three goals in a span of 1:57 to close the gap to 18-15 with 7:50 to play. Junior Sam Campobasso (Buxton, Maine/Bonny Eagle) scored the first marker on a free-position try. Rookie Hannah LaSalle (Humarock, Mass./Marshfield) scored the next two, but those would be the last scores for the Huskies.

Sophomore Erin Kish (Littleton, Mass.) snapped the string of USM goals at 4:50 with her 12th goal of the season. Kane put the final marker on the board at 1:33.

Senior Sarah Pelligrinelli (Southington, Conn.) led the Huskies scoring five goals and dishing out one assist. Campobasso finished with four goals, and LaSalle added two goals and two assists while earning seven draw controls. Senior goalie Caley Presby (Portland, Maine/Deering) had 16 saves.

Kane led all scorers with eight points on seven goals and one assist. Douty finished with five goals and one assist, and Kish had four goals and one assist. Sophomore Julia DiPillo (Medway, Mass.) had the other four Corsair goals. Douty also had a game-high eight ground balls and five draw controls. Rookie goalie Kaitlyn Burchill (Bridgewater, Mass./Bridgewater-Raynham) stopped 10 shots to earn her fifth win of the season.

UMD had a wide edge in shots (45-28) and a smaller advantage in ground balls (32-27). The two teams combined to successfully convert 15 of 25 free-position attempts in the game.

Southern Maine hosts the University of Maine at Farmington on Monday (4:00 p.m.) for a non-conference match. UMass Dartmouth will be at Framingham State University on Thursday (4:30 p.m.).

No. 9 women's lacrosse falls to unbeaten Middlebury

LEWISTON, Maine -- No. 2 nationally ranked Middlebury netted the game's first five goals, and produced a solid defensive performance en route to a 12-5 NESCAC win over the No. 9 Bates women's lacrosse team on Saturday at Garcelon Field. Bates win streak ends at four games.

The Panthers (10-0, 6-0 NESCAC) limited the Bobcats (10-2, 5-2 NESCAC) to just two goals during the opening half, and held the Bobcats scoreless for 31:30 of game action. Bates doesn't play again until April 19 with a road game at Tufts.

Middlebury entered the game as the NESCAC's leading offense and Bates had the conference's leading defense. The Panthers' 12 goals were three more than Bates had given up in a game all season.

Middlebury set the tone early jumping out to the early lead, when Laurel Pascal opened the scoring 1:57 into the contest.

The Bobcats looked to pull even a minute later on a free-position shot by junior Drew Barry (Portland, Maine) while on an extra-player opportunity, but Panther goalie Katie Mandigo made a nice save to keep Bates off the board.

The guests doubled the lead when Pascal bounced a free-position shot in for her second tally of the game at 22:48, while Megan Griffin scored 50 seconds later to push the Panther advantage to three. Middlebury completed the game-opening spurt with tallies by Claire Russell and Bridget Instrum on an extra-player chance for a five-goal advantage at 14:54.

Bates finally solved Middlebury's defense with a goal with 14:05 left in the half on a shot by senior Moriah Greenstein (Glenmont, N.Y.). The Bobcats netted another score off the stick of junior Sydney Cowles (Wayne, Pa.) just over five minutes later, closing Middlebury's lead to 5-2.

Middlebury added the final goal of the period with 2:28 remaining when Mary O'Connell picked the top left corner of the net after taking a nice pass from Alli Sciarretta for a 6-2 lead.

In the second half, the Panthers again started quickly with two unassisted goals in a span of 39 seconds. Chrissy Ritter picked up the first at 27:43 with Instrum netting the second for her team-leading 27th of the season, pushing the lead to six at 8-2. Sciarretta made it a 10-2 contest with a pair of goals separated by 12 seconds, the first on a free-position shot and the second via an assist from Mary O'Connell. The score remained an eight-goal lead for the visitors until Griffin and Pascal tallied 17 seconds apart to give Middlebury its largest lead of the game (12-2) with 18:15 left in regulation.

The Bobcats ended its long scoring drought when Cowles netted a goal with 7:42 showing on the clock. Cowles added her third of the game and sophomore Camille Belletete (Jaffrey, N.H.) slinged a hard shot in to close out the scoring (1:34) and make the final score 12-5.

Pascal led the Panthers with three goals, raising her season total to 24, while Sciarretta chipped in with two goals and a pair of assists. Griffin finished with two goals and a helper, while Alex White led all players with seven ground balls. Mandigo added five ground balls and seven saves to earn the win in goal for the Panthers.

Cowles factored in on four of the five goals by the Bobcats with three scores and one assist, while Belletete earned a game-high five draw controls. In goal, senior Hannah Jeffrey (Greenwich, Conn.) recorded nine saves.

Middlebury held an advantage in both shots (31-19) and ground balls (26-16), but the hosts held a 13-6 edge in draw controls.

Sierra James (Campton, N.H.) connected on a free position shot at 8:43 to close the gap to two goals, but Malik scored just seconds later to make it 6-3. Rachael Redles (Coopersburg, Pa.) scored on a pass from Obshatkin at 5:26, and the Mariners entered the halftime down 6-4.

WATERVILLE, Maine -- Colby College's Sasha Fritts scored a collegiate-high five goals, including the opening three goals of the game, to help the Mules to an 11-5 NESCAC women's lacrosse win over rival Bowdoin College on Tuesday night at Bill Alfond Field.

The Mules improve to 9-2 overall and 5-2 in the conference, while the Polar Bears drop to 5-7 and 1-7 in the league.

Fritts helped Colby take a 5-1 halftime margin and contributed two goals in the final 16 minutes of the game to help the Mules maintain a comfortable lead.

Colby's Kelsey Bowen and Lexie Perticone each had two goals, while Kendall Smith had one goal and one assist. Claire Caputi scored a big goal on a free-position shot and Maddie Hatch had two assists.

Lindsay Picard finished with a pair of goals for Bowdoin. Megan O'Connor had one goal and one assist. Annie Glenn and Kelsey Gallagher also tallied for the Polar Bears.

The two teams combined for 45 fouls and the game took nearly two hours to play because of stoppages on many of the fouls.

Fritts had a hat trick just 11:27 into the game. Her first two goals were unassisted and then had a strange third goal. Fritts somehow deflected a pass by Hatch into the goal.

Picard made it 3-1 when she scored on a free-position shot with 15:46 to play. The Mules, though, scored the final two goals on an unassisted score by Bowen and a free-position goal by Smith for a 5-1 lead at intermission.

The Polar Bears scored two of the first three goals to cut the margin to 6-3 with 21:58 to play. Picard tallied from O'Connor with 26:55 remaining, but Colby countered on Perticone's unassisted goal. O'Connor scored on a free-position shot with 21:58 remaining.

Caputi scored her goal with 20:04 remaining on a free-position shot and Fritts made it 8-3 on her fourth of the game from Smith.

Glenn scored off a pass from Hannah Hirschfeld with 10:58 left to help Bowdoin cut the lead to 8-4. Bowen scored with 9:15 remaining and Fritts had her final goal off a nice passing sequence with Hatch with 4:30 to go.

Bowdoin's Gallagher and Colby's Perticone traded goals in the final four minutes.

Abby Hooper finished with three draw controls for the Mules, who had a 9-8 advantage in draws. Emilie Klein added three ground balls, two caused turnovers, and one draw control. Jackie Brokaw had two caused turnovers and two ground balls, while Hatch had three ground balls and two draw controls.

Picard had three caused turnovers and four ground balls to pace the Polar Bears. Anisa LaRochelle added three ground balls and two caused turnovers, while Emma Beecher had three ground balls, two draws, and one caused turnover.

Colby goaltender Izzy Scribano had five saves, with four in the second half. Kayli Weiss played the opening half for Bowdoin and Erin Morrissey played the final 30 minutes. The Polar Bear keepers combined for four saves.
