Limestone Undefeated in League with Rout of Converse

GAFFNEY, S.C. An early offensive outburst helped lead No. 4 Limestone (14-1, 6-0 CC) not only to the first stretch of four straight games with 20-plus goals in program history but also an undefeated Conference Carolinas season, as they hammered Converse (5-9, 1-4 CC) 21-2 in on Saturday, April 14.

The Saints opened with seven of the first eight goals over the first 10 minutes before pushing that advantage to 13-1 with 5:48 remaining in the first half. They would head to the break up 13-2 following a Valkyries goal by Sam Green. In the second half, they exploded for eight goals and allowed none to secure the 21-2 blowout victory.

Senior attack Racquel Prager (Seaford, N.Y.) led all scorers with a season-high six goals along with an assist while junior attack Chelsea Treat (Penn Yan, N.Y.) notched four goals and an assist. Senior attack Kelly Lalonde (Henrietta, N.Y.) and sophomore attack Sarah Oor (Uxbridge, Canada) each added two goals and two assists.

Senior attack Sylvia Queener (Penn Yan, N.Y.) chipped in with a score and a pair of assists and junior midfielder Jessie Aguglia (Webster, N.Y.) and senior attack Lauren Smith (Greer, S.C.) each had a goal and an assist. Senior goalkeeper Brigid Milchling (Cockeysville, Md.) started and played 48:03 and allowed two goals while making one save to improve to 13-1.

Sam Green had both goals for Converse on unassisted runs while Alexandra Gurecki played the entire game, allowing 21 goals and making nine saves.

Limestone is back in action on Wednesday, April 18 as they host first year program Newberry and former assistant coach Emily Bikowski. Game time is set for 3:30 p.m. at Saints Field.

NOTES It is the first time in program history that Limestone has scored 20 or more goals in four straight games ... in 2009, from April 7-15, they downed Lees-McRae (22-4), Erskine (21-0) and Converse (23-2) ... in 2010 they blitzed Converse (20-5), St. Andrews (23-4) and Pfeiffer (21-9) from April 13-24.
