SALISBURY, MD —
Salisbury University pulled away from a close contest by scoring 17 unanswered goals, including six in an eight-minute span of the first half, en route to a 19-3 win over Frostburg State Saturday afternoon.
The Sea Gulls, ranked 14th in the latest Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association national poll, took a 2-0 lead before Bobcat junior Andrea Duffy (Liverpool, N.Y./Liverpool) found the net with an assist from senior Melissa Lennon (Ellicott City, Md./Mt. Hebron) at the 14:59 mark to cut FSU's deficit in half.
Frostburg State (4-3) couldn't catch a much-needed break early on, as three shots hit the goal pipe in the first eight minutes.
Salisbury (6-3) took advantage of FSU's missed opportunities and went on a six-goal tear in a stretch of 8:08. Sea Gull juniors Jessica White and Theresa Driscoll each found the net twice, and senior Christine Sliger added three assists in the spurt.
The hosts continued to pull away with three more goals in the closing moments of the first half and took a commanding 11-1 lead into the break.
Salisbury kept its offensive performance rolling in the second stanza, scoring eight straight goals in the first 15 minutes of the half to open a 19-1 advantage.
The Bobcats scored a pair of late goals when Duffy found the net off a feed from Lennon with 5:38 remaining and freshman Page Macey (Linthicum, Md./North County) notched her team-high 26th goal of the year with 56 seconds to play.
Sea Gull junior goalie Dena Glisan made 10 saves, while Bobcat sophomore Sarah Shockley (Fallston, Md./Fallston) stopped 14 shots.
