Bollhorst Helps No. 2 Salisbury Ice Frostburg State

SALISBURY, Md. Junior attacker Katie Bollhorst moved into 10th place on Salisbury's all-time assist list during the Sea Gulls' 19-3 win against Capital Athletic Conference foe Frostburg State on Saturday afternoon at Sea Gull Stadium. It was a pink-out at Sea Gull Stadium, as the women's lacrosse team raised funds to support the fight against cancer.

Bollhorst tied for the game-high with five points, scoring one goal and dishing out four assists in the contest. So far this season, Bollhorst leads the CAC with 34 assists. For her career, she has 71 helpers, which moves her into sole position of 10th place on the all-time list. Coming into the contest, she was tied at 67 with Jennifer Mezzadra (1998-2001).

Junior Lauren Feusahrens led the Salisbury (10-0, 3-0 CAC) attack with a game-high four goals in the game. She leads the Sea Gulls with 32 goals, is fourth in Capital Athletic Conference in goals and third in the CAC in total points with 43 on the season.

Freshman Bethany Baer, in her first start of the season, got the Sea Gulls on the board 1:45 into the game. After a Frostburg State (4-7, 2-3 CAC) goal six minutes later, freshman Kate Haker put the Sea Gulls up for good with her first of two goals on the day just 38 seconds after the Bobcats had scored.

After another Frostburg State goal midway through the first half to bring the score to 5-2, the Sea Gulls scored eight straight goals to pull away. During the run, from the 14:11 mark to 4:36 remaining in the first half, Feusahrens netted three of her goals allowing Salisbury to take a 13-3 lead going into the break at halftime.

The second half saw only Sea Gull tallies on the scoreboard. Baer opened the second half scoring with her second goal of the day 1:14 into the second half. Sophomore Katelyn Blondino netted her third goal of the season during the second half of the contest. Classmate Shannon Carta and freshman Hayden Hutzell rounded out the second half scoring with two goals each.

The Sea Gulls controlled the game statistically as well as on the scoreboard. Salisbury outshot the Bobcats 37-7 in the contest, collected two more groundballs and won three more draw controls during the game.

Sophomore Ashton Wheatley stopped two shots in her 41:09 of play, earning the decision in the cage for the Sea Gulls. She improves her career mark to 12-0 with the win today, with 10 of those wins this year. Classmate Hannah Whiteley played the remainder of the game in net and lowered her goals against average to 0.55 for the season; Wheatley's effort lowered her mark to 6.07 on the year.

For Frostburg State, Mallory Brunett scored all three Bobcat goals in the contest. Her first two scores were unassisted and the third on a free-position shot.

The win extends Salisbury's conference winning streak to 80 games.

Salisbury embarks on a five-game roadtrip and returns home for its regular-season home finale on Wednesday, April 18 to face CAC and Route 13 rival Wesley College. Game time is set for 4:00 p.m., at Sea Gull Stadium.
