Four different players netted hat tricks to power the Lafayette women’s lacrosse team to its first Patriot League win of the 2018 season on Wednesday evening at Fisher Stadium, a 15-10 victory over Bucknell.

High Point 21, Drexel 10
Drexel could not dig itself out of an early hole and saw a spirited comeback effort run out of steam midway through the second half as the Dragons fell at No. 25 High Point. Drexel gave up seven straight goals in the span of 9:20 early in the first half and, after pulling back within three with just over 16 minutes to play, allowed High Point to regroup with a back-breaking two goals in 26 seconds that started a game-ending eight-goal run.
For the middle third of the game, the Dragons held their own and often looked like the better team against their third ranked foe of the season, but the lapses early and late were more than enough to do them in.
Colleen Grady matched a personal best with four goals, adding two assists to lead the offensive attack for the Dragons (2-7). Karson Harris put together a hat trick after missing Drexel’s last contest with an injury. Cassidy Delaney scored twice and Alex Beilman netted a goal to round out the scoring for the Dragons. Defensively, Rachel Warden (Garnet Valley) caused six turnovers and won a pair of draw controls. Molly Savage (Garnet Valley) had three caused turnovers with a team-best five draws and four ground balls. Lindsay Shettle caused a pair of turnovers, and Zoe Bennett came up with 13 saves.
Navy 18, Lehigh 7
Lehigh scored three straight goals to pull within 9-6 with 20:15 still remaining, but No. 13 Navy answered with an 8-0 run and nine of the final 10 goals to down the Mountain Hawks (6-5, 1-2 Patriot Leagueg) at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. Lehigh won 10 of the first 16 draws of the day, but Navy rebounded to win 10 of the final 11 to help the Midshipmen control possession and create separation.
Sophomore Sondra Dickey (Conestoga) led Lehigh’s offense with four goals while junior Courtney Henig (Notre Dame-NJ) scored twice. Jenna Collins led Navy in goals (7), points (8) and draw controls.
