Crusaders Send off Seniors in Style, Clinch Playoff Spot

SELINSGROVE, Pa. - The Susquehanna University women's lacrosse team found the best way to honor its seven senior players Saturday - a 13-10 win over Moravian College that clinched the No. 4 seed in the Landmark Conference playoffs. The Crusaders (6-9, 2-3 Landmark) will travel to No. 1 seed Catholic on Wednesday.

Prior to the game, the team recognized its seven seniors: Elizabeth DiPaola (Moorestown, N.J./Moorestown), Rachel Devilbiss (Taneytown, Md./Francis Scott Key), Heather Linton (Bridgewater, N.J./Bridgewater-Raritan), Erin McGarrigle (Malvern, Pa./Great Valley) and Sara Frackowiak (Flemington, N.J./Hunterdon Central), Mary Minuni (Gilbertsville, Pa./Boyertown), Dana Mulvihill (Madison, N.J./Morristown-Beard School) and Jess Weiss (Huntingdon Valley, Pa./William Tennent).

It was that group that took charge of the scoring, as McGarrigle led the team with four goals and an assist. Linton scored three, one of which was a nifty scoop and flip into the net, while Devilbiss and Minuni each had one. Mulvihill contributed points with an assist.

The Crusaders also got goals from Sara Frackowiak (Flemington, N.J./Hunterdon Central), Meghan Cadigan (Mountain Lakes, N.J./Mountain Lakes), Kelly Coffey (Northhampton, Mass./Williston-Northhampton) and Katelyn Deese (Malvern, Pa./Great Valley).

Devilbiss also led the way with five ground balls and two caused turnovers. Linton and Mulvihill had four ground balls each. DiPaola had two ground balls and a caused turnover. Weiss once again went the distance in goal, making 12 saves.
