NCAA Lacrosse: San Diego State Women’s Lacrosse (4-0) Tops Saint Mary’s 20-9 On March 2; Aztecs Use 11-0 Run To Take Control In Second Half


The San Diego State women's lacrosse team continued its winning ways on Sunday afternoon, earning a road victory over Mountain Pacific Sports Federation (MPSF) foe Saint Mary's, 20-9, at SMC Recreation Field.  The Aztecs (4-0, 2-0 MPSF) are off to the best start in program history, as five different players recorded hat tricks on Sunday. Senior Meris Walsh, junior Lauren Maack and sophomores Felice Artuso, Andrea Killebrew and Katie Gill scored three goals apiece, as SDSU improved to 4-0 all-time against the Gaels. Junior Bailey Ewing also added two goals, both of which came during SDSU's 11-0 run to take control of the game after a slow start.  "We started off flat and Saint Mary's took advantage of that because they're a fast, aggressive team," head coach Kylee White said. "We just rallied together and figured out what we needed to do. It's been the story of the season so far - fighting through adversity."  Junior Grace Korandovich recorded a goal, an assist, four draw controls and three caused turnovers in her second-consecutive strong performance, while junior Christina Ricciardulli finished with three caused turnovers, five draw controls and two groundballs, and freshman Vickie Porter had six draw controls. Freshman goalkeeper Katie Merritt made her first-career appearance, playing 36 minutes in the net and tallying six saves.  The Gaels raced out to a 3-0 lead and were ahead 5-2 before Walsh scored unassisted and Artuso capitalized on a free-position opportunity to pull within one. The Aztecs later went on a 3-0 scoring spurt to take the lead, as Maack's goal off a pass from Gill made it 7-6 with 14:51 left in the first half.  After Saint Mary's (0-3, 0-2 MPSF) tied it less than three minutes later, San Diego State scored the next 11 goals to take a commanding lead, 18-7. The Aztecs have started MPSF play 2-0 for the second-straight year, as everyone of the roster played on Sunday.  "It's a great way to start conference play," White said. "Having a complete team effort and having everyone contribute was awesome."  San Diego State outshot Saint Mary's 41-22 (28-10 in the first half), had a 19-11 edge in draw controls and an astounding 12-1 advantage in free-position shots. Senior Allie DeBruhl scored a game-high four goals for the Gaels, while freshman Megan Zummo had two assists, five caused turnovers and six draw controls.  SDSU plays host to No. 10/9 Boston College in its home opener on Saturday, March 8, beginning at 1 p.m. PT at Aztec Lacrosse Field.

NCAA Lacrosse: Saint Mary’s Women’s Lacrosse (2-3) Notches 16-7 Win Over Marquette On March 10


Saint Mary's Women's Lacrosse vs Marquette

A 7-1 run to begin the game got the Saint Mary’s lacrosse team started and the Gaels cruised from there, beating Marquette 16-7 on a sun splashed day in Moraga.
Saint Mary’s (2-3) stayed perfect at home this season with the win, much to the delight of a strong home crowd.
Leading the way offensively were midfielders Rachel Minarovich and Amanda Cross, with each scoring four goals for the Gaels.
They each assisted on a goal as well. Caroline Mahony played the role of distributor, racking up three assists and scoring a goal of her own.
The Gaels were equally strong on defense, forcing 22 turnovers. Goalie Katherine Herzog stopped 10 shots in the victory.
“Defensively, we definitely pressured out a little bit more than we usually do,” Saint Mary’s coach Lauren Uhr said. “We kind of forced that straight up turnover, then really helped each other by taking up the lane. As a team on defense, a little bit of on-ball pressure definitely got in their heads a little bit.
Just over five minutes into the game, Allie DeBruhl got the scoring started, finding the net with an unassisted goal.

NCAA Lacrosse: USC Women’s Lacrosse Wins “First-Ever” MPSF Conference Game With 17-8 Victory Over Saint Mary’s On February 24

USC women’s lacrosse freshman attack Caroline de Lyra collected nine points with three goals and a game-high six assists to help the Women of Troy claim their first-ever Mountain Pacific Sports Federation victory. The Trojans (2-2, 1-0 MPSF) squared their season record on a 17-8 win over Saint Mary’s College (0-2, 0-1) on Sunday, Feb. 24, at McAlister Field, and will now hit the road for four straight games.
“Getting this first conference win is really exciting,” said head coach Lindsey Munday. “There are just so many firsts that happen with a new program, and a new team, and obviously conference games are the most important for us. The girls did a great job of preparing, this week, and Saint Mary’s is a great team and they fought really hard.”
Four different players scored at least three goals for the Trojans including de Lyra. She was joined by freshman midfield Amanda Johansen who also had an assist and a game-high nine draw controls. Freshman attack Caroline Cordrey had three goals on a game-high 11 shots (seven on goal) while freshman attack Paige Bonomi had three goals on six shots.
“I’m not sure what the highlight of the game was, for me,” said de Lyra. “I think it was the first goal and then when we started to get up. I think because we knew we could win it, we weren’t really sure how we were going to compare to other teams in the conference and then once we started winning and getting the score board up, then we really showed up.”
Freshman defense Courtney Tarleton led all players with four ground balls and four caused turnovers and goalie Liz Shaeffer completed another stellar outing with eight saves and a .500 save percentage.
For the Gaels, Jullian Chong posted three goals and had three draw controls while Amanda Armes collected four draw controls. Saint Mary’s had its share of troubles with five yellow cards, and was often the aggressor with twice as many fouls as the Trojans.
