Host Drexel jumped out to a 10-0 first-half lead en route to a 18-4 women’s lacrosse victory over Wagner in a non-conference game.
The win halted a seven-game losing streak as the Dragons improved to 8-8 on the season. Charlotte Wood (Conestoga) and Ali Allen (Phoenixville) each scored three goals while 11 different Dragons scored at least one goal.
The Dragons scored early and often as Allen connected just over three minutes into the contest to open the 10-0 run. Wood and Katie Lawson each tallied twice in the outburst while Morgan Holbrook (Bayard Rustin) handed out two assists as the Dragons put the game away in the first half.
Lawson posted two goals and two assists in limited action while Kimberly Kabernagel (Conwell-Egan) and Katie Blazer each added a pair of goals. Kabernagel and Nicole Musto were especially active in the midfield as they each picked up three groundballs and three draw controls. Emily Kane also had a fine all-around game with game-high totals of four groundballs and three caused turnovers.
Lauren LaBella earned her 42nd career victory, the most for any goalie in Drexel’s Division I Women’s Lacrosse history. She made four saves in just under 46 minutes of action.
