UNION, N.J. (4/2/11) – The Kean University women’s lacrosse team scored seven of the game’s first eight goals en-route to a 20-2 win over The Sage Colleges in Skyline Conference action on Saturday afternoon.

After the two teams traded goals in the opening minutes, Tocko opened a 6-0 run with back-to-back goals as Kean built a 7-1 lead.  Butler halted the run with an unassisted goal midway through the first half, but the Cougars closed out the half with seven straight goals to take a 14-2 lead at halftime.

Kean scored all six goals in the second half to pull away for its largest win of the season.

Sophomore Lyndsey Cannon had three goals, an assist and five draw controls, while senior Amanda South added three goals.  Senior defender Joelle Vitale had six caused turnovers and six groundballs.

For the Gators, goalkeeper Brittany Schafer made 17 saves in the first 45 minutes of action.

The Cougars return to Skyline action on Tuesday, April 5, when they travel to SUNY Maritime College.
