Syracuse, N.Y. (April 8) -- On Tuesday afternoon at Ted Grant Field, Assumption dropped a 17-4 road final to No. 9 ranked Le Moyne in a Northeast-10 Conference match-up. The loss snaps the three-game Assumption winning streak, while Le Moyne wins to break a two-game losing streak.

The first half started slowly as the game was scoreless thru the first 12 and a half minutes of play before Kaitlyn Armstrong scored off an assist from Danielle Kealy for the 1-0 edge. Over a stretch of 6:29, the Dolphins used a balanced attack with six different players scoring to jump out to a convincing 7-0 advantage with just under 11 minutes left in the first half. Assumption got on the board with 9:03 remaining in the first on the 11th goal of the season from freshman Quincy Wilkins (Wilbraham, Mass./Minnechaug) as she faked right and shot left for the 7-1 margin. The Dolphins took the eventual 12-1 lead into the halftime break as Le Moyne held a 19-4 advantage in shots thru the first half.

Le Moyne scored a pair of free position goals to open the second half to extend the lead to 14-2 with 24:20 left before Assumption junior Rebecca Cann (Danvers, Mass./Danvers) tallied an unassisted goal for the 14-2 margin. Sophomore Julianna Molloy (Guilford, Conn./Guilford) added her ninth goal of the season with 7:31 left on a free position shot, along with a goal by sophomore Meg Curley (Seaford, N.Y./Seaford) that was assisted on by senior Lindsay Hagerman (Scarborough, Maine/Scarborough) to account for the 17-4 final. Hagerman is the lone Hound that has at least one point in each of the 12 games thus far in the 2014 season.
