Cannon Sets Career Scoring Mark as Women’s Lacrosse Mangles Manhattanville

PURCHASE, N.Y. (3/7/13) – Senior Lyndsey Cannon set two career records for the Kean University Women's lacrosse team – including the most goals ever by a Cougar – as Kean ripped through Manhattanville College 15-6 on Thursday. Cannon netted a hat-trick and secured three draw controls to set both all-time records for Kean.

Julie Knodt opened the scoring for Kean, with Cannon right in her heels 40 seconds later with the record-tying tally. Manhattanville got one back but then the Cougars fired six unanswered goals to take an 8-1 lead and blow the game open.

The Cougars got scoring from everywhere: Samantha Gnapp (pictured left) had four goals, including half of Kean's total in the authoritative 6-0 run. Maggie Brocklebank had three goals, Knodt finished with two, and Ciara Mastrodomenico, Kelly Bachovchin and Stephanie Tocko each had one for the visitors.

Jules Keeley earned the win for Kean in goal with seven saves, and Brocklebank and Marisa DeAngelis had the only assists registered for the Cougars.

Cannon has now scored 222 goals in her career, breaking former teammate Amanda South's (2008-11) record of 220. With her three draw controls on Thursday, she also moved ahead of Chelsea Davis (2007-10) on that list with 208, besting another former teammate by one.

The Cougars will return home on Saturday to face Centenary College at 11 a.m.
