Shenandoah Hornets Sting N.C. Wesleyan Bishops

ROCKY MOUNT, N.C. - Shenandoah University won its second straight women's lacrosse match Tuesday afternoon with a 14-1 USA South Conference win over N.C. Wesleyan.

The Hornets (3-3, 2-0 USA South) have already matched last season's win total with the win over the newly reinstated Bishops (0-4, 0-2).

N.C. Wesleyan is in its first year of varsity lacrosse after suspending the program for the 2008 and 2009 seasons. Last year, the team played as a club program.

After the Bishops score the opening goal on a Sarah Matulich tally right off the opening draw, Shenandoah dominated the remainder of the contest.

The Hornets had a lead they would not relinquish 76 seconds after Matulich scored her goal and eventually led 10-1 by the halftime break.

SU held a 21-3 halftime advantage in shots, won 10 of 16 groundballs and seven of 12 draw controls.

Junior Sara Mucciaro had those first two goals while classmate Ashley Heroth added two goals and an assist and freshman Corrinne Kosmowski a goal and two assists.

Shenandoah held the ball for most of the second half, scoring two goals in the first 10 minutes and another two in the last five.

Junior Jennie Ott led all scorers with two goals and two aasists.

Freshman goalie Tori Beasley had to make just four saves.

SU continues USA South Conference play with a Saturday home contest against Ferrum. First draw is scheduled for 2:30.
