SAVANNAH, Ga. – Freshman Eliana Enners totaled a game-high five goals to lead the 12th-ranked Embry-Riddle women’s lacrosse team to a 23-12 defeat of Lander (RV), Saturday at Memorial Stadium. The win extended the Eagles’ (4-0) unbeaten streak on the road to four games, while Lander drops to 2-2 on the year.
In addition to her five-goal tally, Enners won seven draws, picked up four ground balls and caused two turnovers. Caitlin GavinKenley Zeruto and Callison Foreman totaled three goals each with Gavin and Allison CImaglia winning four draws each and Zeruto and Alexa Zeruto dishing out four assists apiece.
Goals were at a premium in the first period with the teams combining for just five goals in the first 15 minutes. Lander scored first in the 10th minute, but the Eagles answered less than 30 seconds later. The teams traded goals over the next five minutes and the last score of the period came from Enners’ stick to send Embry-Riddle into the second quarter with a 3-2 edge.
Lander tied the score at 3-3 to start the second period, but the Eagles countered quickly, rattling off four scores in a row to go up 7-4. The Bearcats managed to halt the Eagle run briefly, but goals by Enners, Gavin, Kenley Zeruto and Foreman, who had two second-quarter goals each capped a nine-goal frame for ERAU who led 12-4 at the half.
The Lander offense came to life to start the third as the Bearcats netted the first three goals of the period. The Eagles fired back, however, and outscored Lander 4-2 in the last 6:06 to maintain their eight-goal advantage heading in the final 15 minutes.
The fourth quarter featured five different goal scorers for the Eagles. The teams managed just one goal each in the first eight minutes, but at the 7:12 mark Cimaglia netted her first goal of the year which was the first of three scores in a two-minute span that helped the Eagles secure the win.
The Eagles play their first home game of the year on Wednesday when Flagler comes to the Embry-Riddle Lacrosse Field for a 7 p.m. start.
