Shenandoah Storms Past the Panthers

LaGRANGE, Ga. - The Shenandoah University women's lacrosse team earned its second USA South Conference win in as many days Sunday with a 15-1 victory at LaGrange.

For the second straight day, Shenandoah (2-2, 2-0 USA South) jumped to a huge early lead and never let its opponent back into the contest.

This time, the second-year Panthers (0-2, 0-2) were not able to break through until the Hornets held a 15-0 lead and just two minutes remained in the contest.

Kelsey Griffin had that lone goal for the hosts, scoring unassisted with 2:05 remaining.

Freshman Erin Oliver had the opening goal of the game for SU, scoring just 15 seconds into the game off of senior Ashley Heroth's assist.

Just 47 seconds later, senior Jennie Ott netted what proved to be the game-winning goal with an unassisted tally.

The Hornets got goals from 11 different women and 16 players registered at least one point.

Sophomore Corrinne Kosmowski and freshman Melissa Morgan shared game-high honors with three goals each.

Ott and Heroth had a goal and two assists each to match Kosmowski's and Morgan's point production.

SU outshot LC 30-3, held a 13-10 advantage in groundballs and won 14 of 18 draw controls.

Shenandoah is back in action on Wednesday with a non-league game at Frostburg State.
