Jordyn Humphrey sets program record to elevate the hatters to a 21-13 victory over Youngstown State

The Stetson Lacrosse team dominated in the second half of their 21-13 victory against Youngstown State Monday afternoon. Jordyn Humphrey set program records for the Hatters with 8 goals and 11 points in the contest. 
“I’m proud of the way we kept fighting today,” said Head Coach Chrsity Leach. “It was a battle and we didn’t let down. We did a great job in the midfield today and that’ts what helped us get the possessions we needed at the right times.”
 Youngstown State started the scoring in the first quarter but Humphrey quickly answered back tying the game at one. The Penguins tallied two straight goals to take a 1-3 lead but Humphrey was up to the task again scoring a goal with the team a man up to make it 2-3. Youngstown State added another goal to take back a two goal lead. The Hatters rallied to score three straight goals in the last minute and a half to end the first period up 5-4. Sam King scored her first goal of the game and Katie Kornacki scored the other two. All three of the goals were a man up. 
In the second period the two teams traded a goal with Maya Sellinger scoring for Stetson. The Hatters added two more on a goal from Kornacki and then Humphrey to take an 8-5 lead. The Penguins didn’t go away though scoring four straight goals and taking a 8-9 lead into halftime. 
In the third period Humphrey tallied two goals in 45 seconds to retake the lead for Stetson but Youngstown State tied it back up just a minute later. The Hatters took over scoring four straight with goals from Anya PhillipsLexi Bird, King and Humphrey. The Penguins got one back before the end of the third period but Stetson led 14-11. 
Youngstown State scored the first two goals of the fourth period to cut the Stetson lead to one. The Hatters clamped down on defense the rest of the way now allowing a goal over the last thirteen and a half minutes. Offensively the team tallied seven goals. Humphrey added her seventh and eighth of the day, King scored her third, Sellinger her second, Phillips her second and third and Molly Kearney her first of the day. 
“We have a thing we do in the locker room and that is defend DeLand”, stated Jordyn Humphrey. “I think we did a really good job of that today. Our defense had a lot of knockdowns today and our transitions were great and that’s what gives us opportunities on attack. Everyone keeping their head up was a big reason for me having eight goals today. We have so much more potential, and I can’t wait to reach that. 
Humphrey finished with three assists and a record eight goals to another record 11 points on 17 shots, 10 of which were on goal. Kornacki, King, and Phillips each tallied three goals. Georgia Goering finished with three assists tying for the team lead with Humphrey. 
Next up for Stetson will be a home game against Iona. That game will take place on Saturday, March 9 at noon.
