The Saint Joseph’s women’s lacrosse team saw four players score two goals apiece to lead the Hawks to a 10-6 win over visiting Saint Francis this afternoon. Sophomore Gwen Nihill had a pair of goals and assisted on two, while goalkeeper Kaitlin LaBarbera made 10 saves in net.
The Red Flash scored a goal five minutes into the game to get on the board first, but the Hawks retaliated with three straight scores to go up 3-1. Jen Peters connected on a free-position shot, while Meghan McDevitt (Manheim Township) had an unassisted goal and Carly Kindbom scored the third goal off a pass from Nora McGuire.
Saint Francis scored a minute later with a free-position goal and added a goal with 1:19 on the clock to tie it up at 3-3 going into the break.
Just 1:15 into the second half, McGuire caught Grace Dinn cutting to the net for her first goal. Less than two minutes later, Nihill drove to the net and scored on a one-on-one with the Red Flash goalkeeper to put the Hawks up 5-3.
