|LAURINBURG, N.C.—Pfeiffer University -- ranked No. 10 nationally in the current IWLCA Division II Poll -- used an 11-2 second half to pull away from a one-goal game at halftime en route to a 17-7 Conference Carolinas women’s lacrosse victory over host St. Andrews Presbyterian College on Wednesday afternoon. |
Ashley Hill, who was named the Conference Carolinas women’s lacrosse Player of the Week earlier today, had a game-high five goals and seven points to lead the Lady Falcons to their second straight league victory. Pfeiffer holds a 6-4 overall and 3-3 league records.
Hill and senior Ellie Fenton who scored four goals, were part of a quartet of Falcons who scored multiple goals. Junior Krissy Bentolila registered a hat trick and sophomore Jamie Livingston added a pair of goals.
The Knights pulled out to a 4-1 lead with a three-goal run in a one minute and 37 second span.
Pfeiffer answered and took the lead for good with a 5-0 run including a pair of goals by Hill. The Falcons looked to have a two-goal lead at halftime but Brown scored her third goal of the half as time expired to pull the score to 6-5 at the midway intermission.
The Falcons continued to lead 8-6 before going on an 8-0 outburst to pull away. Fenton started the run with back-to-back free-position goals.
Junior goalkeeper Kristine Schafer earned the win in net for the Falcons with seven saves.
