Holy Family Sprints Past Post in CACC Play

PHILADELPHIA, Pa. Despite a career-high four goals by freshman Eryka Baez (Clifton, N.J.), Post University lost a CACC contest to Holy Family on Thursday afternoon at Tiger Field. The Eagles allowed a season-high 23 goals, as they fell 23-6.

In addition to Baez's four tallies, junior Morgan Kanavy (Syracuse, N.Y.) and sophomore Meghan Diggett (East Islip, N.Y.) both found the back of the net. Baez and junior Sara Cramer (Lake Hiawatha, N.J.) had three ground balls apiece to lead Post (1-6, 0-4 CACC). Kanavy contributed three draw controls.

Holy Family (3-3, 2-1 CACC) scored the first five goals of the day, before Baez got Post on the board with 18:54 to play in the first half. Baez scored on a free-position goal.

After Baez netted her second goal of the day to make the score 7-2 in favor of Holy Family, the Tigers scored five straight goals over a span of 6:01. The stretch gave Holy Family a 10-goal lead, 12-2, with 6:43 to play before intermission.

Kanavy converted a free-position goal with 5:24 left in the first half to cut the Eagles' deficit to nine goals, 12-3. After Baez scored her third goal of the first half with 2:59 to go, Marissa Lawson grew the Tigers' lead back to 10 goals, 14-4, with 17 seconds to play in the opening half.

Holy Family grew the lead to as many as 16 goals, 21-5, on a Lauren Greco tally with 7:15 to go in the game.

Senior Michelle Chadwick (Miami, Fla.) made seven saves in the loss for Post. She fell to 1-5 this season.

The Tigers were led by four-goal performances from Brianna Lancetta and Gina Mansi, while three other Holy Family players netted hat tricks.

Post will play its third and final game of the week on Saturday, March 24, when it hosts Chestnut Hill in a CACC contest. The opening draw is slated for 1:00 p.m., at LaMoy Field. Admission to all Post women's lacrosse games is free and open to the public.
