McDaniel Uses Late First-Half Run to Sink Shenandoah

WESTMINSTER, Md. McDaniel scored four of the final five goals in the first half to take a 5-3 lead into the break en route to a 12-5 victory over Shenandoah in non-conference lacrosse action on Tuesday.

Danielle Entrot (Ellicott City, Md./Centennial) led the Green Terror (5-2) with three goals and two assists while Sam Barbeito (Wolfsville, Md./Middletown) added three goals and an assist.

Samantha Donaghy and Becky Bove led the Hornets (4-6) with two goals apiece.

Trailing 2-1 after Bove and Donaghy wrapped goals around a Maggie Quinn (Crofton, Md./Archbishop Spalding) unassisted marker, Entrot converted a free-position goal with 4:10 to play in the first half to knot the game at 2-all.

After the slow offensive start by both teams, the Entrot marker jumpstarted the McDaniel attack.

Julia Jacobs (Stevensonville, Md./St. Mary's) finished a free from Bridget Bopst (Westminster, Md./South Carroll) with exactly 2:00 on the clock for a 3-2 advantage.

Barbeito stretched the lead to 4-2 just 18 seconds later off a feed from Allison Farrell (Towson, Md./Loch Raven).

Donaghy closed the deficit to 4-3 on a free-position goal with 1:07 to play before Monica Parcell (Prospect Park, Pa./Interboro) responded with a free-position tally of her own less than 16 seconds later for the 5-3 halftime edge.

Entrot hit Barbeito before scoring off a Quinn feed 3 minutes, 39 seconds later to push the lead to 7-3 with 15:23 to play in the contest.

Sisson hit Bove to close the deficit to three just 15 seconds later.

Entrot completed her hat trick off a Barbeito feed with 13:47 to play before Farrell converted a free-position attempt 63 seconds later.

Entrot hit Bopst in the middle of the field for a 10-4 lead with 8:52 showing before Quinn found Jacobs 39 ticks later.

Barbeito finished a solo run with 5:01 on the clock before Liz Bereit scored on a free-position shot with 2:14 showing for the final margin.

McDaniel finished with a 35-14 advantage in shots and 22-13 edge in ground balls. Parcell controlled three draws while Jacobs added two caused turnovers and six ground balls to her two goals.

The Green Terror returns to action at Haverford on Saturday. Game time is 1:00 p.m.
