Second-Ranked Syracuse Throttles No. 10 Dartmouth

Goldberg entered the day with 99 career points to her credit on 82 goals and 17 helpers. Assisting on Plumb's second of three goals on the day allowed her to finally crack into triple digits in scoring.

She would add the Big Green's lone second-half goal to finish the day with 101 career points.

Plumb's three goals Monday against the Orange (9-2) comprised the rest of the Dartmouth offense. However, it was Plumb's eight draw controls that may have been the game's most impressive statistic.

The eight draws move the senior into second all-time at Dartmouth with 127 in her career, just three back of first-place Whitney Douthett '07. The single-game total is only one off the program record of nine that Plumb set in Hanover against Boston University on March 7.

Through 10 games, Plumb and Goldberg each have 25 goals this season, while Plumb holds a three-point advantage in the scoring lead with 35 this spring.

Sophomore goalkeeper Kristen Giovanniello turned aside five Syracuse shots in nearly 57 minutes of play in one of the toughest environments in all of college lacrosse. She eventually gave way to junior Julia Szafman for the final few minutes, where sherecorded three saves.

Syracuse's Michelle Tumolo led all players with eight points on three goals and five assists, while Alyssa Murray scored four times for the home team.

Dartmouth remains undefeated in Ivy League play after the weekend split in Central New York, having defeated No. 16 Cornell, 12-10, Saturday afternoon. The Big Green will look to continue that trend of stellar play against league opponents when they host No. 8 Penn Saturday at Scully-Fahey Field at noon.
