Castleton Falls to Skidmore at Rain-Soaked Spartan Stadium

Castleton, VT - Kimberly Segalas (Stamford, CT) scored five goals to lead nine different Thoroughbred scorers in a 19-10 non-conference win over Castleton State College Monday evening in womens lacrosse action at Spartan Stadium.

MacKenzie Staub (East Northport, NY) added four goals and Lauren Madden (Huntington, NY) three for Skidmore (3-1). Lindsay Stavola (Montauk, NY) added one goal and three assists, while Abbie Klaus (Bethesda, MD) chipped in two goals and one assist and Lexi Melville (Syosset, NY) one goal and one assist. Sydney Weill (Woodbridge, CT), Leslie Stebbins (Wilton, CT), and Lauren McCarthy (Ipswich, MA) each found the back of the net once.

Klaus and Madden each scored inside the first three minutes of play to stake the Thoroughbreds to a 2-0 lead that they would not relinquish. Marie VanDerkar (Manchester, VT) scored the first of her eight goals to cut the lead in half, but Klaus and Segalas answered in succession to push the lead 4-1. VanDerKar scored all six of Castletons first-half tallies to keep the game within reach at 11-6 heading into intermission, but in the second half, the balance of the Thoroughbred attack proved to be too much.

VanDerKars eight goals came on nine shots and she added five ground balls and three caused turnovers to round out her evening. Elizabeth Haggerty (Centerport, NY) and Stephanie Paproski (Newtown, CT) each added single goals for Castleton (2-3). Nicole Adams (rutland, VT) provided a team-high three assists.

Angelica Mazzola (Centerport, NY) chipped in two assists and a team-leading five forced turnovers. Rebecca Duszak (Erieville, NY) was saddled with the loss in net, stopping two shots in the first half before giving way to freshman Lily Derbyshire (Little Compton, RI) who made eight saves in 30 minutes of relief.

Rachel Klein (Far Hills, NJ) picked up the win in between the pipes for Skidmore, stopping five shots on net. McCarthy not only contributed in the scoring column for the Thoroughbreds, but she was also crucial to the possession game, grabbing a team-high seven draw controls, to go along with four ground balls.

Castleton opens its New England Womens Lacrosse Alliance (NEWLA) slate on Saturday when the Spartans travel to Elms College for a 2:00 p.m. draw. Skidmore will travel to Trinity on Sunday for a 1:00 p.m. non-conference affair.
