Basile-Louison Nets 7 in Saint Vincent Win over Allegheny

Liz Basile-Louison scored a game-high seven goals, as the Saint Vincent women defeated Allegheny College 17-14 on the turf at Saint Vincent College. The game was called due to weather with just under 12 minutes left in the second half, and by rule, it is counted as an official contest.

Kelly Naugle got the scoring underway early for the Lady Bearcats, taking the opening draw and streaking to goal untouched, firing a shot into the back of the net just 38 seconds into play.

Over the next seven minutes, Basile-Louison scored twice, and Naugle and Anne Roslonski once apiece, while Allegheny countered with five goals of their own as the game was tied at five just nine minutes into play.

The Lady Bearcats then went on a 5-2 run over the next 10 minutes, with Basile-Louison scoring three times and Sarah Peranteau twice, pushing the SVC lead to 10-6 with 10 minutes left in the opening stanza. The two teams then traded goals over the final minutes of the half, with Peranteau scoring twice and Basile-Louison and Naugle each once for SVC, and the Lady Bearcats entered halftime with a 14-10 advantage.

Allegheny's Kiah Voyer-Colbath scored twice in the opening minute of the second half, pulling the Gators to within two, but goals from Basile-Louison and Roslonski gave SVC back its four-goal lead, 16-12, with 19 minutes left in regulation.

As the skies continued to darken and the steady rain showers intensified, SVC's Michelle Moss scored the Lady Bearcats' final goal of the day, sandwiched between a pair of scores from Allegheny's Meg Grossman. Due to nearby lightning strikes and the rainy conditions, the officials then called the game with 11:23 left regulation.

Peranteau finished with four goals for the Lady Bearcats (4-6), while Naugle tallied three and Roslonski two. Moss tallied a goal and an assist, while Roslonski and Lauren Martino each added helpers on the day. Erica Lisi played the first 20 minutes in goal for the Lady Bearcats, finishing with four saves, while Jenn Forsyth came on in relief and recorded 10 saves in 29 minutes.

The seven goals by Basile-Louison were just one off the school's single-game record, shared by Shoko Asukura (2005) and Hannah Doblick (2003).

Allegheny (5-9) saw four players score multiple goals, led by four from Jensen Paterson. Grossman and Voyer-Colbath scored three goals apiece, while Christina Zanic found the net once.

The Lady Bearcats will now have a week off before returning to action on Wednesday, April 29th, traveling to Washington & Jefferson for the season-finale beginning at 7:00 pm.
