Senior Haylee Molloy became the Arcadia University women’s lacrosse team’s all-time scoring leader with her third point of the game as the Knights scored an incredible 15 unanswered goals on their way to a 19-4 non-conference victory over Immaculata University Thursday afternoon at Easton Field.

Molloy entered today’s game just two points from matching the previous program record of 252 career points. She tied that mark with an assist on junior Adeline Belleshiem’s third goal of the game that came 6:06 into the second half, and then set up senior Mindy Hair’s second goal of the contest that came two and a half minutes later to break the record. Molloy found the back of the net herself midway through the second frame for her fourth and final point of the game, giving Arcadia a 16-4 lead.

Molloy now has career totals of 203 goals and 53 assists for a program-record 256 points. The previous record of 252 points was accumulated by Traci Conrad, who scored a still program-record 228 goals with 26 assists from 1994-97. Molloy’s 203 career goals are the second-most in program history, while her 53 career assists are fifth on the all-time list.

The Knights (2-0) scored the first the goals of the game on tallies from freshman Nicole Hutson (Archbishop Wood), senior Jaclyn Feffer and junior Jessica Santoli, but the Mighty Macs (0-1) scored four of the next five goals to tie the game at 4-4 in the later stages of the first half. Four different players scored during that span for Immaculata, with freshman Nicole Dominick accounting for the game-tying marker with 7:17 left in the period.

Dominick’s tally proved to be the final one of the game for the Mighty Macs as Arcadia registered 15 unanswered goals to secure the win, which was its seventh in a row over Immaculata.

Bellesheim scored a game-high five goals for the Knights, while Feffer totaled four goals and two assists along with a game-high seven draw controls. Feffer is now tied for 10th on the career goals scored list with 84.

Hutson totaled three goals with one assist while picking up four ground balls and causing three turnovers, while Hair finished with two goals and one helper. Santoli and sophomore Erin Misner added two goals each for Arcadia. Misner also totaled seven draw controls, four ground balls and three caused turnovers.

Junior Jordyn Dunacusky (Plymouth Whitemarsh) totaled six saves while allowing four goals in 53:44 to improve to 2-0 in goal this season, while freshman Liz Stierle (Spring-Ford) stopped all three shots on goal she faced in the final 6:16. Dunacusky now ranks fifth on the career saves list with 237 stops in her collegiate career.

Kelly Lapp had a goal and an assist for Immaculata.
