E-Town Closes Season with Loss to Widener

ELIZABETHTOWN, Pa. - Jessica Binnig scored a pair of goals and Krissy Pennell added to her Landmark Conference lead with six caused turnovers as the Blue Jays brought their 2014 season to a close with an 18-5 loss to Widener Saturday afternoon at Wolf Field.

Widener went ahead 3-0 less than seven minutes into the contest before Dana Robidoux flipped a pass from behind the net to Megan DeMichele in front for DeMichele's fifth goal of the season.

The Pride (4-11) extended its lead to 6-1, but Adriana Bertolino and Binnig scored 44 seconds apart to bring the Blue Jays (1-14) back within three.

Binnig scored again 5:16 into the second half and Addie Stang's 25th goal of the season completed the scoring for Elizabethtown with 39 seconds remaining. Stang finishes the regular season tied for 14th in the Landmark in goals.

Pennell forced six turnovers for the second game in a row and amassed 17 over her final three games. The freshman from Wrightsville casued 33 turnovers to lead the conference by six and her work epitomized the collective growth of a Blue Jay team that entered the season with not a single game of college playing experience amongst any of its players.

Robidoux and Stang led E-town with four draw controls apiece. Pennell had seven ground balls, Robidoux and Beata Palosz four, and Becky Graessle three.

Palosz, who stepped in goal at the start of the year unfamiliar with the position, made another seven saves Saturday, to finish with 77 for the year. She faced 395 shots and played all 15 games, starting 14.

Caitlyn Mullner, Mackenzie Lindquist, Pinky Schneider and Amy Albano had hat tricks to lead Widener.
