LVC Dominates Misericordia for Fourth Straight Win

DALLAS, Pa. - Lebanon Valley jumped out to an early lead and never looked back, cruising to a 21-11 victory over Misericordia on Saturday afternoon.

The big victory is the fourth straight for the Valley, moving them to 6-2 overall as they move into conference play.

The Valley's offensive day featured some large point numbers for the keys to the LVC attack. Junior Bailey Benz, the nation's assist leader, did not disappoint, recording seven assists to go along with her two goals. Senior Mel Modrick was excellent, posting six markers, and sophomore Sam Boyce was her usual point-producing self with five goals and three assists.

In addition to her eight points, Boyce was impressive in the draw circle, picking up 12 draw controls on the day and helping her team to a 24-8 draw control advantage for the game. The Valley held a 37-20 edge in shots on the afternoon and led 19-11 in ground balls.

The Cougars scored the first goal of the game, but that was the only lead they would have as junior Anna Pagels tied it up and Boyce's goal at the 14:02 mark sparked a five-goal run for the Dutchmen, opening up a 10-4 lead with 6:37 to play in the first.

Working it to a 13-5 advantage at the halftime break, LVC kept pouring it on in the second half and the Cougars never got closer than six goals for the remainder of the contest as the final horn sounded on a 21-11 Valley victory.

Next up for the Dutchmen is the start of conference season on Wednesday as they host Hood at 6:00 p.m.
