Queens Sets Scoring Record in Opening Win vs. Post

SHIRLEY, N.Y. -- The sophomore tandem of Kayleen Kelty and Heather Rosen registered five goals and two assists apiece Wednesday afternoon at Golden Lions Field, as Queens set a single-game scoring record with its 24-9 victory over Post University in the season-opening contest for both teams.

The Knights' 24 goals tops the previous single-game high of 20 markers, which was set last March 27 at Lake Erie.

For Queens, sophomore Brittany Wooster recorded five points (4 g, 1 a) and as many draw controls, while Rosen posted the game-high with five ground balls. Melissa Montreuil and junior Meghan Monahan (4 gb) each tallied five points on identical totals of three goals and two assists.

Sarah Boucher (3 gb, 2 dc) netted a pair of goals in the contest, while Julianne Lostrapo and Taylor Sommers each added one goal to the victorious cause. The Knights held a 57-19 advantage in shots, while taking better care of their possessions (five turnovers) than the Eagles (22). In net, sophomore Kahli Evans turned aside five shots.

Post was led by Stephanie Marren's four-goal, one-assist effort, as she also led all players with 10 draw controls. Meghan Diggett netted a hat trick, while Mallorie Michalak registered two goals and one assist for the Eagles, who received 18 saves from goalkeeper Jacquelline Jolles.

Montreuil picked up three points (1 g, 2 a) in the first 12-plus of the contest, as Queens jumped out to a 4-0 lead that it would never relinquish. After Diggett's goal pulled the Eagles to within a 5-2 count with 11:38 remaining in the first half, the Knights ripped off the next five goals before taking an 11-4 lead into halftime.

After Wooser and Diggett traded goals in the first minute of second-half action, Queens put the game away for good by netting the next seven markers of the contest to take a 19-5 lead with 17:22 left on Monahan's second goal of the afternoon.

Head coach Kerry Hausdorf's Queens side is back in action Friday afternoon (March 4), when it plays host to Merrimack at Golden Lions Field for a 4:00 p.m. opening face-off.
