No. 9 Women’s Lacrosse Wins Sixth in a Row

CLEVELAND, Tenn. – Ninth-Ranked Embry-Riddle Women’s Lacrosse earned its 10th win of the season and its sixth in as many games with a 21-13 defeat of Lee on Sunday afternoon. The Eagles turned in a dominant second quarter performance on the way to improving their overall record to 10-1. Lee stands at 7-5 with the loss.
The Eagles got five goals apiece from Caitlin Gavin and Callison Foreman, while Eliana Enners and Ava Rogala added four and three goals, respectively.
Lee got off to a hot start, scoring the first two goals of the game in the first two minutes of play. Gavin won the next draw for the Eagles which led to an Enners goal and the Eagles cashed in on an Emma Telatovich caused turnover to tie the score with a goal from Foreman less than 90 seconds later.
The teams traded goals over the next 10 minutes leading to a 4-4 tie, but two quick goals by Gavin and Foreman in the last 1:44 gave the Eagles a 6-4 lead at the end of the first period.
Rogala’s second goal of the day kicked off a five-goal second quarter for the Eagles. Ella-Rae Cox came up with big plays in the frame with five saves, including two on free position shots, to limit the Lady Flames to just one goal, and Kenley Zeruto dished out three of her six assists to help the Eagles increase their lead to 11-5 at the half.
The Lady Flames scored three of the first four goals in the third to cut the Eagle lead to four (12-8). The margin remained at four goals for much of the period, but the Eagles scored three times in the last 1:59 to widen the gap to seven (17-10) heading into the final quarter.
All the offense in the first seven and a half minutes of the fourth came from the Eagles who increased the lead to 20-10 with scores by Enners, Zeruto and Foreman. Lee scored the next three goals but Gavin’s goal with 3:54 remaining stood as the final score of the game, giving the Eagles the eight-goal win.
The Eagles resume conference play on Wednesday when they travel to Melbourne for a 7 p.m. tilt against Florida Tech.
