WESTMINSTER, Md. One of its most impressive defensive efforts of the season helped lead Susquehanna to a 14-6 road win at McDaniel on Thursday afternoon. The Green Terror managed only six goals against SU while the Crusaders saw six players net goals en route to the team's fourth-straight victory.

Erin Dyer (West Caldwell, N.J./James Caldwell) matched Wright with three assists and added one goal.

Sophomore goalie Emily Stankaitis (Honeoye Falls, N.Y./Honeoye Falls-Lima) made 10 saves as she played all 60 minutes of the game.

The Crusaders took 27 shots to McDaniel's 24 and won 11 of the game's 21 draw controls.

It took Susquehanna just over eight minutes to get on the board as Bauer fed Derstine in front of the McDaniel goal and Derstine then found the back of the net for the 1-0 SU lead.

The Crusaders then rattled off three goals from three different players in a two-minute stretch to up their edge to four. Emily Walsh (Ringwood, N.J./DePaul Catholic) made it 5-0 with a goal at the 9:08 mark of the half before McDaniel finally got on the scoreboard with a goal at the 6:30 mark.
