The first Ivy League game of 2016 for the University of Pennsylvania women’s lacrosse team was a defensive affair, and the No. 16 Quakers (3-1, 1-0 Ivy) proved up to the task in an 8-3 win over Brown (2-2, 0-1).
Brown took only 12 shots in the game, and landed just three in the back of the net as Britt Brown made five saves. Katie Cromie was a factor for the defense, causing one turnover and adding three ground balls.
Penn was efficient on offense, scoring eight goals on 20 shots. Three Quakers — Nina Corcoran, Catherine Dickinson, and Emily Rogers-Healion — connected twice for goals, joined by Iris Williamson (Germantown Friends) and Sarah Barcia on the scoring sheet.
The Quakers extended their winning streak over Brown to 10 games with the win.
Lehigh 14, Iona 11
The Mountain Hawks jumped out to a 13-6 lead early in the second half, Iona responded, but the Mountain Hawks held on to beat the Gaels for their third straight win. Junior Allison LaBeau led Lehigh with a career-high eight points behind four goals and four assists while freshman Courtney Henig and senior Kendall Garden each tallied a hat trick.
Princeton 11, Dartmouth 5
The No. 9 Tigers got goals from eight different players and played a stifling defense against Dartmouth in the Ivy League opener.
Senior Stephanie Paloscio paced the offense with two goals and two assists, while junior Olivia Hompe had a hat trick. Hompe has had at least three goals in every game this season. Sophomores Ellie McNulty and Colby Chanenchuk each had a goal and an assist apiece. Junior Ellie DeGarmo made 12 stops, just one shy of her career best.
George Mason 10, Lafayette 7
Kirsten Wilhelmsen (Strath Haven) had three goals and Amanda Case (Haverford High) added two but the Laopards fell.
Wagner 11, St. Joseph’s 9
A six-goal Seahawks run to open the second half would prove to be the difference as the Hawks fell to Wagner. With the loss, the Hawks fall to 1-3 on the season while the Seahawks improve to 1-4.
Junior attacker Sarah Smith scored three goals and added an assist to lead the Hawks on the offensive end of the field while junior attacker Nora McCallion (Academy of Notre Dame de Namur) registered two goals and an assist and senior midfielder Mallory Grey dished out a game-high three assists.
