With the game tied 3-3 heading into the second half, the Saint Joseph’s women’s lacrosse squad (5-4, 1-0 A-10) exploded for six straight goals and held the Wildcats to just one score in the final 30:00 en route to an eventual 10-4 victory over Davidson (2-6, 0-1 A-10) in the Atlantic 10 opener on Friday afternoon on a rain-soaked Sweeney Field. Four goals marks SJU’s lowest goals allowed number of the spring.

Graduate student Mallory Grey led SJU in points with a goal and a game-high three assists to go with seven draw controls while senior attacker Nora McCallion (Academy of Notre Dame de Namur) (3g) and sophomore midfielder Rebecca Lane (2g, 1a) added three-point efforts to the scoring.

“Today is a great A-10 win for us,” said head coach Alex Kahoe following the win, SJU’s third in a row. “We came out and I was really happy with our transition and our clears, as well as our ride. In the second half, we definitely came together more and were able to execute what we needed to, offensively and defensively. Mallory was great for us offensively as well as off the draw and I’m really proud of how our team finished the game today. “
