Women's Lacrosse Defeats Rutgers-Camden, 17-7

Camden, N.J. (4/5/12) – The Kean University women’s lacrosse team picked up their second New Jersey Athletic Conference win this week by defeating Rutgers-Camden, 17-7, Thursday night.

The Cougars (7-4, 2-1 NJAC) were led by junior Lyndsey Cannon who tallied six goals and an assist while adding eight groundballs and two draw controls.  With the loss Rutgers-Camden falls to 3-6 overall and 0-3 in conference play.

It was a see-saw affair early in tonight’s matchup as the Cougars used a short 3-0 burst to take a 3-1 week before the Scarlet Raptors used a three goal spurt of their own to take a 4-3 lead.  Kean then controlled the final 12 minutes of the half scoring seven additional goals to take a 10-5 lead into the break.  Cannon scored all six of her goals in the first half while sophomore Julie Knodt added two.

Kean then paced the second half scoring an additional seven goals, while allowing just two the rest of the way.  Junior Stephanie Tocko (pictured left) finished the night with five goals and an assist while sophomore Ciara Mastrodomenico tallied three goals, an assist, four groundballs and five draw controls.

Junior Jules Keeley recorded five saves in the win.

The Cougars return to action on Wednesday when they travel to take on the Sage Colleges in Skyline action.
