The women’s lacrosse team was a perfect 2-0 this week, even though both of the games were on the road in Pennsylvania.

With these wins, they are now 5-2 on the season. However, they’re 3-2 on the road and 2-0 at home.

On Tuesday, March 24, the College traveled to Collegeville, Pa., to take on the Ursinus College Bears whom they defeated, 11-3, in an hour and 35 minutes.

The Lions scored seven goals in the first half and added four in the second half. The Bears, conversely, scored a goal in the first and two in the second.

Junior Cortney Natalicchio scored four goals, while senior Kendal Borup added three goals. Freshman Amanda Muller added two, while sophomore Mia Blackman and senior Ava Fitzgerald had a goal each for the College.

Bears goalie Margaret Philbin picked up the loss for Ursinus, who had seven saves in 49:57 minutes. Meaghan Corbin made three saves in 10:03.

Kelly Schlupp picked up the win for the College, while making five saves in 60 minutes.

On Saturday, March 28, the Lions returned to Pennsylvania as they faced the Eastern University Eagles. Much like the Ursinus game, this was another blowout win.

In this game, the College won 17-1 over the Eagles. The team scored 12 first half goals and five in the second half, while Eastern only had a second half goal.

Fitzgerald and Borup each scored four goals for the Lions. Four players had two goals each, including senior Erin Healy, Blackman, Muller and Natalicchio. Freshman Emily Kratz also scored a goal, the first of her career. The Eagles lone goal came from Victoria Rath.

Alina Odjemski picked up the loss, as she gave up 10 goals and made four saves in 12:31. She was replaced by Courtney Adnres, who made two saves and allowed seven goals in 47:29

Schlupp picked up her fifth win and made a save in 46:41 in the Lions’ win. Then, she was replaced by Christina Fabiano, who allowed Rath’s goal at 13:19.
