Crimi, Froccaro Pace No. 2 Adelphi Past AIC

Garden City, N.Y. - No. 2 Adelphi hosted American International in a Northeast-10 Conference match-up. Adelphi's offense was on fire as 18 of their 23 goals were unanswered while the defensive end of the field held strong as well, keeping the visitors to just seven goals. With the win, the Panthers advance to 8-1, 5-1 NE-10 while AIC drops to 1-7, 1-6 NE-10.

Erica Devito finished as the game's high point getter with seven goals split between three goals and four assists. Her second goal of the game at 20:01 sparked a nine-goal run to give the Panthers a more than comfortable 11-2 lead. During that span, she also earned her third goal while assisting on three more scores.

A productive night was had by sophomore Devan Crimi (4G, 2A) and freshman Alexa Froccaro (4G, 1A) as the two underclassmen combined for 11 points. Crimi put in the contest's first goal and accounted for three of the Panther's 16 first half goals while also kicking off the second half with a score just 44 seconds in. Froccaro had two goals in each half and nearly notched a fifth at the end of the game, but her attempt went just wide. Her fourth and final shot that found the back of the cage gave Adelphi their largest lead of the game at 22-3.

For senior Marissa Mills, two of her five shots beat AIC goalie, Nicole Sawula. She was also credited with an assist, two ground balls, three draw controls and two caused turnovers. Teammate Danielle Jaycox got in on the action by adding three goals on the night.

A two-goal effort by Sara Sangiorgio boosted her total to 27 on the season, good enough for third highest on the team. Jacqueline Williams, Joanie Buczowski and Michelle Ceraso each took one shot on the evening and made it count, earning their first, second and third goals of the season respectively.

Meg Brown, Angela Oliveto and Tara Gangarossa rounded out the point getters on the night with Brown earning a goal and Oliveto and Gangarossa each being credited with an assist.

In cage, Jordann Dempsey picked up her eighth win of the season and allowed just four goals while making two saves in 41:32 minutes of action.

For AIC, Courtney Szawlows provided the bulk of the offense, putting in six goals and dishing out on assist while sister and teammate Ashleigh Szawlos assisted on three of those goals while scoring one of her own.
