ERIE, Pa. The trio of Gwen Buss (Harrisburg, Pa./Mercersburg Academy), Elyse Fisher (Jackson, N.J./Jackson Memorial) and Kayleigh Johnson (Fairport, N.Y./Fairport) accounted for 13 of the Lady Eagles 15 goals to lead No. 10 Lock Haven (8-4, 6-1 PSAC) past rival Mercyhurst (8-5, 6-2 PSAC) 15-6 in a critical conference match-up.

The win keeps Lock Haven at the top of the PSAC standings. Buss netted six goals and Johnson had a 10-point game. Johnson scored a hat trick and dished out seven assists. Fisher netted four goals.

Cilla was all over the field for Lock Haven in an all-around spectacular effort. She had three caused turnovers, four ground balls and five draw controls.

Heather Sacko (Fairport, N.Y./Fairport) was brilliant once again between the pipes. She made five stunning saves on the way to the win as she held down the fort in goal.

With 20:33 to go in the first half Lock Haven led 2-1, but the Lady Eagles offense took flight and rattled off seven goals to close the half. LHU led 9-1 at halftime on the way to the lopsided win.
