Coming off a victory against Southern New Hampshire University on Feb. 24 in their home opener, the women’s lacrosse team planned to keep that momentum going into the matchup against Bentley University on Feb. 28.
The home matchup against Bentley’s Falcons started off quickly with a goal in less than seven minutes by freshman health sciences major, Jamie Alvino, assisted by sophomore digital art and design major, Angela Deren.
Eighteen seconds later, the Pioneers scored another goal, this time by sophomore criminal justice major, Brianna Feldman, assisted by Deren. Deren then scored two more goals in three seconds.
Later in the first half, sophomore health sciences major, Paige Sherlock, scored her fifth and sixth goals of the season, both unassisted. To end the first half, sophomore criminal justice major, Alyssa Mallery, scored her third goal of the season and Feldman closed the first half with her second goal of the game. The first half ended with a score of 8-1.
Less than seven minutes into the second half of the game, Deren picked up her third and fourth goal of the game, and eventually picked up assist number three by feeding the ball to Feldman for the Pioneer’s fourteenth goal of the game. The game ended with a score of 15-5 in favor of the Pioneers.
“I go into every game with the same plan every time, which is doing the little things and play my role that I’ve been working on during practice,” Deren said about the team’s victory after the game. “I never have a planned number of goals or assists, I just play my hardest and hope to provide for my team.”
