Oor Has Four Assists to Help #6 Limestone by IUP

GAFFNEY, S.C. An 8-2 scoring margin in the second half helped lead No. 6 Limestone (6-1, 1-0 CC) to an impressive 14-6 victory over Indiana University of Pennsylvania (0-1, 0-0 PSAC) in an NCAA Division II women's lacrosse game on Monday, March 12 at Saints Field.

Sophomore attack Sarah Oor (Uxbridge, Canada) vaulted herself back to the national lead in points and assists as she finished with five points on a goal and four assists to lead the Saints attack. She now has 32 points and 19 assists to lead all of NCAA Division II.

A large majority of the offense she helped setup came from freshman midfielder Sam McCarrick (Oswego, N.Y.) and sophomore midfielder Jessica Aguanno (Delray Beach, Fla.), each of whom registered three goals. Junior midfielder Brittany Howard (Oswego, N.Y.) contributed both offensively and defensively as she finished with a pair of goals and a game-high three caused turnovers and junior defender Skylar Marcoux (Woodbine, Md.) manned the defense with seven groundballs.

Single goals were added by senior attack Racquel Prager (Seaford, N.Y.), junior midfielder Jessie Aguglia (Webster, N.Y.), senior attack Sylvia Queener (Penn Yan, N.Y.), senior attack Lindsay Malecki (Baldwinsville, N.Y.) and junior midfielder Chelsea Hargett (Ithaca, N.Y.). Senior goalkeeper Brigid Milchling (Cockeysville, Md.) played all 60 minutes between the pipes, allowing six goals and making seven saves to improve to 6-1 on the season.

McCarrick got Limestone on the board in the first 30 seconds of the game but the Crimson Hawks answered back with a goal by Alexa Lodovici at the 21:17 mark to tie the game. The teams then alternated scores to remain tied before IUP's Corinne Miller converted on a free position attempt at 15:43 that gave them a 3-2 lead.

It would be the last they would have as the Saints responded in force as they clipped the Hawks wings for the remainder of the game, outscoring them 12-3 to notch the 14-6 victory. After leading just 6-4 at the half, Limestone exploded for eight goals to IUP's two in the second half.

Paige Corathers was the only Crimson Hawk to record multiple goals, finishing with a pair while Stephanie Bianco, Lodovici, Corinne Miller and Alex Edwards each had single scores. Sarah Ward and Tenley Seidel each added an assist while Bianco and Miller finished with eight and six groundballs, respectively. Chelsey Hipp played all 60 minutes in goal, allowing 14 goals and making 12 saves to fall to 0-1 on the season.

Limestone hits the road for the first time this season as they travel to Winter Park, Fla. for a pair of games against nationally ranked opponents. On Thursday, March 15 they will take on No. 12 Bentley before locking horns with No. 4 Lock Haven on Saturday, March 17. Those games are at 3:00 and 7:30 p.m., respectively.
