A strong performance on both ends of the field by the Army West Point Women's Lacrosse team led to a 14-7 victory over Colgate on Sunday afternoon in Patriot League action.
“I am unbelievably proud of our team for finishing out this stretch of three games in eight days in tough fashion. This was a great program win,” Army head coach Kristen Skiera said. “Our defense was cohesive, and we limited a potent Colgate offense to a season-low seven goals. Our draw team of Caroline Raymond, Julia Franzoni and Jackie Brattan was stellar yet again. And on the offensive end, we shared the ball and had contributions from every player who stepped onto the field for us.”
Six different Black Knights had multi-point contests, led by Jolie Riedell had a career-high five points on four goals and one assist. Anna Orlando also registered a career high in points with four with a pair of goals and assists. Hannah Slomkowski recorded eight saves on 15 shots faced.
The Black Knights got out to a quick 4-1 lead thanks to three straight goals early in the first half. Army saw four different goal scorers find the back of the net with Raymond, Riedell, Brattan and Orlando all getting on the scoresheet in the opening moments. Brattan's was a beauty of a transition tally with Lauren Bredenburg starting the break and earning the assist. Read more.
