WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. – Palm Beach Atlantic women’s lacrosse hung with Alabama-Huntsville early before the Chargers pulled away for a 19-5 decision on Wednesday night.

The Chargers responded with two goals within a minute of each other to take a 2-0 lead. The ‘Fish bounced back as Cinotti and Anna Laskaris scored back-to-back goals.
After two more goals from UAH, the ‘Fish closed the gap to 4-3 with 15:18 to play in the first half as Grace Bartlinski scored the first of her two goals. After that UAH scored seven straight to close the half and take an 11-3 lead into the break. The run continued into the second half as the Chargers added four more before Bartlinski scored her second. Shayna Rogers added a goal later on for PBA.
The ‘Fish will have an extended break before they return to action on March 30 to open SSC play against Rollins at 5 p.m.
