No. 6 Gettysburg Thumps Bryn Mawr

GETTYSBURG, Pa. The sixth-ranked Gettysburg College women's lacrosse team put a stamp on the end of the regular season with a 22-1 victory over Bryn Mawr College on Saturday.

Nine Bullets found the back of the net led by freshman Bailey Beardsley (Union Bridge, Md./Francis Scott Key) with a season-high five. Sophomore Hayward Sawers (Timonium, Md./St. Paul's School for Girls) posted a career-high seven points on four goals and three assists, while junior Hannah Church (Ellicott City, Md./Mount de Sales) and sophomore Haley Stauch (Trappe, Md./Sts. Peter & Paul) each tallied three goals.

Bryn Mawr (5-9, 0-9 CC) came out with the game's first shot, but senior Laura McIntyre (Glenmoore, Pa./Coatesville) made one of her three saves on the day. Gettysburg (13-3, 8-1 CC) turned the defensive stop into offense as Church found sophomore Lindsay Menton (Ellicott City, Md./Glenelg Country School) for the game's first tally at 27:07.

Freshman Grace Ciolfi (Scituate, Mass./Notre Dame Academy) and senior Marnie Commins (Fairfax Station, Va./Robinson) went for back-to-back goals just 21 seconds apart, and following a goal by Church at 25:01, Menton and freshman Kelsey Markiewicz (Salisbury, Conn./Berkshire School (Mass.)) went back-to-back just 20 seconds apart. Gettysburg went on to score each of the game's first 14 goals before the Owls struck with 4:15 in the first half.

Holding a 17-1 lead at the break, Gettysburg took a conservative approach for the second half and only took five shots. The Bullets scored on every one of those attempts with Sawers throwing in her fourth goal with 12:09 to play.

Ciolfi capped the day with two goals and three assists and Menton tallied two goals. Commins and freshman Megan Quigg (Sykesville, Md./Century) each posted one goal and one assist. Senior Becky Lutz (Madison, Conn./Daniel Hand) paced the defense with four caused turnovers and three ground balls.

Gettysburg advances to the Centennial Conference Tournament semifinals hosted by top seed Franklin & Marshall College on April 30-May 1. The second-seeded Bullets will face third seed Ursinus College at a time to be announced on Saturday.
