From Press Release
Claire Andrews and Caitlyn Brostrand (Camden Catholic) each scored three goals today to power visiting La Salle past Temple, 7-4, in a non-league women’s lacrosse game
The Owls (1-1) got a pair of goals from senior Jaymie Tabor (Downingtown West), while the Explorers (2-0) had two players record hat tricks.
Temple had more opportunities overall, particularly in the first half as the Owls out-shot the Explorers 14-7, but too many of those shots missed wide.
The Explorers had a 2-0 lead until Tabor’s first goal in the 11th minute of action got Temple on the board. Just 39 seconds later, sophomore Nicole Tiernan (Washington Township) tied the game, and the 2-2 tie would stand until just seven minutes remained in the half.
Brostrand completed her hat trick with three minutes to spare in the half to give La Salle a 4-2 advantage, but the Owls got one back before halftime when freshman Rachel Barile scored on a pass from sophomore Kirstie Connor.
With almost nine minutes elapsed in the second half, Tabor put her second goal in the net after taking her time on offense and waiting for her moment to make her move into the crease. Unfortunately for the Owls, it would be their last goal of the game.
Andrews scored her third goal with 3:47 remaining for a 6-4 La Salle lead, and within the next minute it appeared Temple got one back, but the goal was reversed after a stick check by the officials.
La Salle’s Erin McCabe scored her team’s final goal with 2:10 remaining. Temple had two more shots on goal, but both were saved by the Explorers’ Gabby Antonelli. Antonelli picked up the win, making nine total saves.
