The Arcadia University women’s lacrosse team scored the first 10 goals of the game as it opened the 2014 season with a 12-4 non-conference victory at Marywood University Saturday afternoon. It was the first game of the year for both teams.

Freshman midfielder Erin Misner (Westhampton, N.J.) scored the first of her game-high seven goals 5:20 into the game to put the Knights ahead, and junior midfielder Jaclyn Feffer (Montgomery, N.Y.) followed with a pair of goal in a span of just over two minutes that gave Arcadia a 3-0 lead 10 minutes in. Misner added two more goals in the first half, while senior attack Sara Volk-Perez (Mays Landing, N.J.) scored her first of the season, giving the Knights a commanding 6-0 halftime lead.

Misner scored three of the first four goals of the second half, with the other coming from senior attack Jenna Crothers (Patchogue, N.Y.), before the Pacers finally got on the board with a tally from senior midfielder Kimberley Commisso (Milford, Pa.) with 10:28 left in the game. It was the first of her two goals in the match.

Junior midfielder Catherine Brown (Howell, N.J.) found the back of the net with 8:02 remaining in the game for the Knights, and Misner capped the scoring for Arcadia 17 seconds later, giving the Knights a 12-2 lead with 7:45 left on the clock.

Sophomore goalie Jordyn Dunacusky (Plymouth Whitemarsh) tallied seven saves while allowing four goals to earn her first win of the season in net for Arcadia.

Three Eastern players scored four goals as the Eagles opened with an easy win.

Junior captain Sara Blaylock opened the scoring in the third minute on a strong dodge, but the Griffins answered in transition only a few seconds later. Eastern strung together six straight tallies to grad a 7-1 lead and command of the game. Caleigh Falco scored three of her four goals in the critical early stretch. Shannon Wilcox scored two of her four in that stretch and first-year attack Anna Charlebois had a goal and an assist.

Ten of Eastern’s 21 goals came from first year players. Falco led the way with four goals and two assists. Jenn McKelvie and Charlebois had 2 goals and an assist and Kelsie Andrews scored twice.

The Griffins briefly stopped the Eastern run with a free position goal from Danae Perrymond before Falco, McKelvie, and Charlebois answered. The Eagles boosted their advantage to 15-3 at the break.

Blaylock finished the game with four goals and seven draw controls and junior defender Ariana Borreginne gathered three draw controls. Cortney Andes made four stops and picked up the win in goal.

Amy Powell scored twice for the Griffins (0-1)
