Lacrosse Falls to No. 2 College of Jersey
04/20/2002

FROSTBURG, MD — Junior Liz O'Connor scored four goals and added three assists to power second-ranked College of New Jersey past Frostburg State, 18-6, Saturday afternoon at Bobcat Field.

The Lions (10-0), who won their 19th consecutive regular-season game, took control early.

Sophomore Carin Heller gave TCNJ a 1-0 lead just 27 seconds into the game with the first of her three goals on the afternoon. Senior Valerie Cherill recorded a free-position goal at the 25:46 mark, and O'Connor tallied back-to-back goals, the second on an acrobatic shot behind her head, as the Lions opened a 4-0 advantage.

Cherill scored just 18 seconds later, and junior Tara Prindible add a tally to give the Lions a 6-0 lead before FSU made a run, scoring three of the next four goals to trim its deficit to 7-3 at halftime.

Junior Andrea Duffy (Liverpool, N.Y./Liverpool) put the Bobcats on the board with a bouncing shot at the 14:51 mark and found the net again on a similar play four minutes later.

O'Connor notched her third goal of the half just 21 seconds later to make it a 7-2 contest, but Bobcat freshman Page Macey (Linthicum, Md./North County) collected a loose ball in front of the Lion net and bounced a shot in to pull FSU to within four at the break.

Frostburg State (5-6) closed to within 7-4 just 1:38 into the second half when freshman Caitlin Howley (Damascus, Md./Damascus) drove through traffic, spun around her defender and found the net.

However, TCNJ ripped off seven straight goals in a span of 4:17, including the first three in just 26 seconds, to blow the game open.

Duffy connected for the Bobcats at the 20:38 mark, and Macey followed at 19:21 to make it a 14-6 contest. The Lions scored the final four goals of the day to cap the scoring.

Duffy led FSU with three goals, while Macey scored twice to give her a team-high 39 goals on the season.

Cherill tied O'Connor for game-high honors with four goals, while Heller found the net three times. Prindible added two goals and two assists.

Frostburg State will visit Bridgewater (Va.) College on Monday at 4:00 p.m.
