No. 2 Salisbury Opens Strong, Storms Past CNU

NEWPORT NEWS, Va. - The No. 2 Salisbury University women's lacrosse team opened up the 2010 season with 21-6 road victory over Christopher Newport University on Saturday. The two teams have played each year since 2004, with the Sea Gulls holding a perfect 7-0 record against the Captains.

SU (1-0) was led by senior midfielder Beth Rhodey (Fallston, Md.) and junior attacker Logan Bilderback (Arnold, Md.) as they each registered five points. Rhodey scored a team-high four goals, with Bilderback just one behind with three. Juniors Meagan Osipowich (Hauppauge, N.Y.) (two assists) and Aileen McCausland (Phoenix, Md.) each scored two goals in the victory.

Senior All-American Jessica Chmielewski (Woodbine, Md.) impressed in her first game back from an injury that held her out of most of the '09 season, as she tallied two assists. Freshman Roxanne Raab (Fallston, Md.) scored her first collegiate goal on a free-position attempt.

The Sea Gulls played three goalies in the contest, with junior Julie Ann Caulfield (Drexel Hill, Pa.) getting the start. Freshmen Keli Berkman (Salisbury, Md.) and Ali Meeks (Pasadena, Md.) also saw time in between the pipes for the Gulls.

The maroon and gold will get right back to work tomorrow, as they host Hood College in the home opener at Sea Gull Stadium. Game time is set for 1:00 p.m.
