Senior Chelsea Rosiek (Wissahickon) scored three goals and added an assist to lead visiting Temple to a 12-4 victory over host Jacksonville Friday in non-conference women’s lacrosse.

Charlotte Swavola (Cheltenham) and Ann Stouffer each scored twice for the Owls (2-3) while Allison McWilliams (Avon Grove) and Stephanie Markunas (Ridley) each added a goal and an assist.

Melissa Schweitzer (Owen J. Roberts), Kellee Pace (Chichester) and Lindsey Colferai added one goal apiece.

Jessica Colucci made eight saves for the Owls. It was a strong day defensively for Temple, which recorded 38 ground balls to Jacksonville’s 24. Leading the effort was senior defender Tracy Zimmer (Council Rock North) with six ground balls along with two caused turnovers.

“It was a great win for us,” said Temple head coach Bonnie Rosen (Harriton). “We needed to try to find momentum, and we had to build it throughout the contest. Jacksonville is a young but talented team, and they forced us to figure out how to play our game.

“The game was won on good team defense, and Jess Colucci had a great day in goal. Some great individual efforts created wonderful team offense. It was a good confidence-builder as we get ready for Delaware (on Wednesday).”

Lehigh 13, Bucknell 2

Kelly Draper had three goals and two assists while Lauren Dykstra and Megan Kelly each had three to lift the undefeated Mountain Hawks (5-0) to the win in their Patriot League opener.
