The No. 2 ranked LeMoyne women's lacrosse team (14-1, 9-1) put together another pair of impressive wins this past weekend, defeating Detroit Mercy 22-7 on Friday evening and Franklin Pierce (6-8, 3-7) 20-2 Saturday afternoon at the Niland Athletic Complex.
The Dolphins extended its winning streak to 10 after losing 11-9 to No. 1 ranked Adelphi back on March 23 and have outscored its opponents 182-40 in that span.
On Friday, it was senior attacker Michelle Phillips (Maine Endwell) that had a career day, registering five goals and five assists to lead her team over Division I opponent Detroit Mercy. Senior midfielder Bekah Elmer (West Genesee) drew first blood for the Dolphins notching her 28th goal of the season on an assist from Brenna Bauer (Brighton) just 22 seconds into the contest.
Detroit junior midfielder Emily Boissonneault notched back-to-back goals shortly after to push its premature 2-1 advantage. It would be the Titans' only lead.
The teams would trade the next five goals before LeMoyne went on a mini-run of its own with scoring contributions by Elmer, Bauer, Phillips and junior attacker Brittany Brigandi (CBA) to close out the first half 10-5. Brigandi's unassisted goal was her 51st on the season.
The Dolphins would come out blazing in the second half, erupting for eight unanswered goals to all but put the game away.
Phillips lead the team with five goals and five assists while Elmer (four goals, three assists), sophomore Kelly Condon (three goals, one assist), Brigandi (three goals), freshman Tori Nies (three goals), Bauer (two goals, two assists), freshman Kathleen Conese (one goal, one assist) and senior Mia Valletta rounded out the offensive juggernaut.
Nies hails from Jamesville-DeWitt, Conese from Liverpool. And the local flavor continued as junior goalkeeper Kelly Fucillo West Genesee) turned away four shots on goal and converted a near-perfect 15-for-16 in clears.
