Southern New Hampshire Shoots by American International

MANCHESTER, N.H. Junior Sherry Darrell (Bow, N.H.) set school single-game records for goals and points with eight goals and three assists to lead Southern New Hampshire University to a 22-8 Northeast-10 women's lacrosse victory over American International College Monday at Larkin Field. The Penmen evened their overall record at 1-1 and are 1-0 in the NE-10, while the Yellow Jackets suffered their first loss of the season and are now 4-1 and 0-1 in the league.

Darrell's eight goals eclipse the previous record of seven goals in a game set by teammate Carole Lee (Derry, N.H.) against C.W. Post on March 30, 2008, and her 11 points break the previous mark of nine held by three players, including Darrell, who had nine points against Saint Thomas Aquinas on April 27, 2008.

Sara Halbich (Salem, N.H.) finished with four goals for the Penmen, who also got three goals from Lee two goals and three assists from Maura Murphy (Candia, N.H.). Jami Shugrue (Lowell, Mass.) finished with two goals and an assist, while Emily Mongeau (Westboro, Mass.) added a goal and three assists. Kelly Curran (Arlington, Mass.) and Rene DiPietro (Quincy, Mass.) each added a goal for Southern New Hampshire.

Courtney Szawlowski paced American International with two goals and two assists, while Ashleigh Szawlowski totaled two goals and an assist. Katie Warner scored twice, while Alex Hudyka and Morgan Mastronardi each added single tallies.

AIC and Southern New Hampshire traded the game's first five goals, with Warner giving the Yellow Jackets a 3-2 lead 12:38 into the first half. The Penmen then closed out the first half by scoring 11 unanswered goals, and Darrell's tally 1:34 before intermission made it 13-3 at the break. Hudyka scored the first goal of the second half for the guests, but the Penmen would score the next three goals and maintained at least a 12-goal lead the rest of the way.

Hannah Moriarty (Chelmsford, Mass.) made eight saves to earn the win for Southern New Hampshire as the Penmen outshot the Yellow Jackets 42-21. Gina Gallo turned aside 13 shots for AIC.

Southern New Hampshire returns to action Wednesday when it hosts Saint Anselm College in a 4:00 contest at Larkin Field.
