No. 3 Limestone Uses Offensive Barrage vs. Young Harris

SPARTANBURG, S.C. - In command from the opening whistle, No. 3 Limestone (1-0, 0-0 CC) showed no rust in their season opener as they pounded out a 19-0 decision over Young Harris (0-1, 0-0 PBC) in an NCAA Division II women's lacrosse game on Saturday, February 15.

Senior attack Katie Farrell (Brooks, Ga.) and junior midfielder Sam McCarrick (Oswego, N.Y.) each drilled home a team-high four goals to lead the barrage while senior attack Sarah Oor (Uxbridge, Canada) found the back of the cage twice and assisted on three others. They were joined by sophomore midfielder Taylor Cline (Hagerstown, Md.) with three goals and sophomore midfielder Carleigh Davis (Eldersburg, Md.) with a goal, two assists and game-high tying three groundballs.

Freshman attack Jaylen Schulte (Edgewater, Md.) added a goal and an assist to round out the top offensive performances while freshman goalkeeper Sydney Teeter (Auburn, N.Y.) played 42 minutes in goal and allowed no shots to collect the win and move to 1-0 on the season.

The Saints put the game well out of reach in just the first 9:03 as they exploded for eight goals, five of which were taken on their own, for an 8-0 lead. From there they drilled three more before half to take it to a running clock with more than a 10-goal lead.

It would get no better in the second half for the Mountain Lions as Limestone opened with back-to-back scores in the first seven minutes. They would go on to score six more times in the frame before finally closing out the dominant 19 goal victory.

Jaclyn Kernohan recorded the lone shot on the day for YHC and produced a game-high tying three groundballs. Equaling the latter mark for the Mountain Lions was Jordana Freitas. Carter Moore had a pair of groundballs and Sarah Nudelman played 21:37 in between the pipes, allowing 11 goals and making one save to suffer the loss and fall to 1-0 on the year.

Limestone returns to action on Tuesday, February 19 when they travel to Charlotte, N.C. to take on former Conference Carolinas rival Queens University of Charlotte. A rematch of the 2013 Conference Carolinas Tournament Championship, the game is set for 4:00 p.m.

Notes: The Saints notched the victory over a pair of former Limestone All-Americans as YHC's head coach Katie Ilott, and assistant coach Rashelle McLellan both completed tremendous playing careers for the Saints ... due to the after effects of Winter Storm Pax, the game was played in Spartanburg, S.C. at Spartanburg High School.
