YONKERS, NY—Seven players scored at least two goals today to lead The University of Scranton women’s lacrosse team to its third straight win, an 18-7 decision over the College of Mount St. Vincent this afternoon at Tibbetts Brook Park.
Senior Kerry Sullivan (Oceanport, NJ/Shore Regional) paced the Royals’ balanced attack with three goals and senior Erin Green (Merrick, NY/Sandford Calhoun) and freshman Meghan Kerr (Warwick, NY/John S. Burke Catholic) finished with two goals and two assists apiece as Scranton improved to 5-7.
The Royals, who held a commanding 35-15 advantage in shots and a 21-6 margin in draw controls, also received two goals and an assist from senior Christine Dredger (Glen Head, NY/Our Lady of Mercy Academy) and two goals apiece from senior Shannon Ginty (Mineola, NY/Sacred Heart Academy), sophomore Fiona Keelan (Larchmont, NY/Larchmont), and freshman Nikole Sullivan (Sparkill, NY/Tappan Zee).
Junior Melina Mezzanotte (Shirley, NY/McCann-Mercy) led the Dolpins, now 5-8, with three goals and junior Kelly Frazer (Staten Island, NY/Tottenville) chipped in a pair.
Freshmen Grace Campbell (Catonsville, Md./Catonsville) and Marne Rosetti (Wayne, NJ/Wayne) each played a half in goal for the Royals and each was credited with three saves apiece.
With three goals today, Sullivan reached the 175-point plateau in her career and is now only three points shy of tying former teammate Deanna Giorno (178 points, 2010-2013) for fifth-place on the Royals’ all-time scoring list.
Scranton will break for the Easter holiday and return to action next Wednesday, April 23, against Oneonta St. at Fitzpatrick Field beginning at 7 p.m.
