SU overcomes overtime loss earlier this week, drubs Wheeling Jesuit, 17-0


The Shippensburg University women’s lacrosse team scored 11 first-half goals on a sunny Thursday afternoon en route to its second shutout of the season, earning a 17-0 victory over first-year program Wheeling Jesuit from the James LaRosa Athletic Fields.

Lauren Hauck scored the first goal of the afternoon just 44 seconds into the match and then proceeded to set up her teammates, recording a career-high six assists in the contest. The school record for assists in one game is seven, set by Joan Dotzman in 1979. Hauck now has 11 assists in five games.

Lindsey Kennedy and Bennett Widlake each recorded hat tricks. It is the second straight game in which Widlake has had a hat trick. Kennedy also had an assist, while the two ladies combined to win seven draw controls. SU won 17 of the 19 draw controls in the match.

Kayla Dalzell was a steady force on the field with two goals, a career-high three assists and three groundball pickups. Roxanne Brown and Courtney Kennedy both scored two goals, with Brown also assisting on Hauck’s game-winner in the first minute.

Liz French contributed a goal, three draw controls and two groundballs. Garrie Grenfell, Amanda Krok and Sheila Johnson also scored in the contest.

Ali Cross achieved her first career shutout by making two saves.

SU will host Shepherd at 4 p.m. Tuesday from Robb Sports Complex.
