Four different Wildcats had four points in Villanova’s 20-12 victory over Drexel on Saturday afternoon.

Sophomore attack Liz Trojan and junior attack Jillian Swikart had four goals each. Sophomore attack Katie Comerford had three goals and one assist while sophomore attack Ashley Lynch tallied four assists. This was Villanova’s first win over Drexel since 2014.

Devin Hassinger (Owen J. Roberts) added a goal for the Wildcats (4-2).

Karson Harris had four goals and Lucy Schneidereith added three for the Dragons (1-5).

Penn 18, Georgetown 6

No. 13 Penn laid the hammer down in the second half at No. 25 Georgetown, outscoring the Hoyas, 13-2, over the final 30:00 of play in a win on The Hilltop.

The Quakers (6-0, 1-0 Ivy) scored on 13 of their 19 shots in the second half to pick up their third Top-25 win of the season.

Freshman Zoe Belodeau broke her own school record for draw controls in a game with 13, eclipsing the 11 she had against Rutgers earlier this season. Her 13 draws controls tied for fourth-most among any player in the country this season and are the third-most all-time in a game by an Ivy League player.

Gabby Rosenzweig (5 goals, 1 assist) and Erin Barry (5 goals) led the offense, Belodeau added a goal and four assists while Alex Condon had two goals and two assists.

Mikaila Cheeseman made 10 saves in goal, including eight in the first half. Defender Katy Junior (Radnor) had three caused turnovers and a groundball.

Lafayette 13, St. Bonaventure 5

Senior co-captain Kristin Schaen (Kennett) had a career day for the Lafayette women’s lacrosse team on Saturday afternoon at Fisher Stadium, leading the Maroon and White to a victory over Saint Bonaventure.

Schaen netted a career-high four goals on the afternoon, marking her first career hat trick and just the second multi-goal game during her time on College Hill. The senior co-captain scored her four goals on just five shots, going 2-for-2 from free-position to go along with a draw control and a caused turnover to round out her day.

“I definitely don’t expect to be a scorer, but that was my role today,” Schaen said. “Usually I’m focusing more on the draw, but today we needed a little extra help on offense.”

The Bonnies, still seeking their first win of the 2018 season, kept it interesting throughout the day, but the Leopards took firm control with all five goals in the last 10:20 to close it out. The win moves Lafayette back to the .500 mark at 3-3 on the year overall with one more out-of-conference opponent before Patriot League play begins on March 17.

Junior Jane Kirby (Lawrenceville School) tallied a hat trick of her own, while classmate Emma Novick, who was honored prior to the game for scoring her 100th career goal in the 11-9 win over East Carolina on March 4, added a pair of scores. Junior Hannah Davey and freshman Colleen Bannon also registered multi-point games with a goal and an assist each, respectively.

Loyola 13, Princeton 7

Kathryn Hallett and Kyla Sears each scored two goals and added one assist for the Tigers in the loss. Junior Alex Argo had three caused turnovers and a game-high five ground balls.

Division III
Haverford 19, Cabrini 16

Haverford took a victory over host Cabrini at Edith Robb Dixon Field on the Cabrini campus. Rina Rosnow led Haverford with five goals and Kate Sollee chipped in four. Molly Lausten added three, tallying her 100th career goal in the process. Rachel Romens picked up her second straight win in goal, making nine saves on the afternoon. Haverford improves to 3-1 on the young season while Cabrini falls to 1-3 in defeat.

For Cabrini, Avery Murphy (Archbishop Carroll) had eight goals and three assists and Liz Hoeffner scored seven goals.

Swarthmore 14, Lebanon Valley 13, OT

Swarthmore won on an overtime game-winner by Elizabeth Wainwright (St. Andrew’s School-DE) .

Lebanon Valley had three free-position attempts with less than two minutes left in the first overtime period. The Dutchmen’s first attempt sailed high, the second was saved by Swarthmore goalie Betsy Cohen, who had 15 saves, and the third attempt was fumbled, giving Swarthmore possession with 1:15 to go. Swarthmore junior Tess Wild (Archbishop Wood) darted downfield after recovering the loose ball and sent a pass ahead to Wainwright. Wainwright charged and fired off the game-winning shot as two defenders converged on her. Wainwright had been held scoreless up to that point but picked the perfect time to end the scoring drought.

Wild had a fantastic performance, scoring five goals and registering two assists and four draw controls.

Julia Ostrowski, Kathryn Restrepo (Strath Haven) and Mackenzie Frost all notched a pair of goals. Wainwright, Taylor Chiang (Princeton-NJ) and Sydnie Schwarz each scored one.
