Griffins End CACC Season with Win over Warriors

Nyack, N.Y. (4/20/2013) With senior attack Brianne Timony (Allentown, N.J.) scoring early and her classmates, midfielder Erica Eaby (Lancaster, Pa.) and attack Christina Squillante (Kings Park, N.Y.) scoring late, Chestnut Hill earned their third CACC win of the season at Nyack, 16-3. Timony totaled eight points with six goals and two assists, fueling the Griffins dominate performance against the Warriors.

Chestnut Hill (3-11, 3-7) controlled the contest from the opening draw as Squillante located junior attack Kelly Campbell (Hatboro, Pa.) for the game's first goal at 28:45, 1-0, and Timony followed with the second little more than a minute later (27:14) to give the Griffins an early 2-0 advantage. Eaby netted a free position shot to advance the Griffin lead to 3-0 before Timony scored three in a row and located Squillante to make it a 7-0 run.

Freshman midfielder Lauren Lebo (West Simsbury, Conn.) interrupted the streak at 6:03, 7-1, and she scored again with a second left to play (0:01) in the half to leave the spread at 8-2 heading to intermission. After the break, Eaby lead off another Griffin run that opened the second half. She scored off the take from Timony at 28:54 then handed the show to Squillante and Eaby who each scored three times en route to the 16-3 triumph.

Freshman attack Selena Vargas (Swan Lake, N.Y.) was the only other Warrior to score on freshman goalkeeper freshman Danielle Owen (Glenolden, Pa.) who made three saves in her first collegiate victory (1-4). Lebo did most of the work for the Warriors, finishing the affair with two goals, three ground balls, nine draws, and a caused turnover. In goal, freshman Melissa Richards (Nanuet, N.Y.) made seven saves for the home team.

Timony added two ground balls, two draws, and four caused turnovers to her tremendous offensive performance. She was well-supported by Squillante and Eaby who scored four times apiece. Squillante also recorded her assist, while Eaby added tow draws and two caused turnovers to her offensive effort.

The women's lacrosse team finishes their CACC schedule at 3-7 in league play, but they continue to compete tomorrow, Sunday, April 21, when they face-off at 1:00 p.m. against Shepherd University.
