Behind an 11 assist performance by Jackie Sileo (Wantagh, N.Y.), the C.W. Post women’s lacrosse team earned a 23-3 win over Southern New Hampshire at Hickox Field.
Sileo’s assist outburst is a C.W. Post single-game record, and falls one short of the NCAA single-game record of 12 assists. The win improves the Pioneers to 2-0 early in the season while Southern New Hampshire falls to 0-2.
The Pioneers hit the back of the net only 54 second into the contest, as Lauren Spagnoletta (West Islip, N.Y.) went unassisted for the first strike of the afternoon. Kathleen Rotan (West Islip, N.Y.) then put in the second goal of the game, followed up by Sileo’s lone goal of the game. Ashley Olen (East Islip, N.Y.) and Samantha Losco (Smithtown, N.Y.) each tallied a goal before Nan Mayott (Islip, N.Y.) went back-to-back to put the Pioneers up 7-0.
With one assist through the first 13 minutes of the game, Sileo went on a streak of seven straight helpers on goals, making the Pioneer lead 14-0. Abigail Ross (Miller Place, N.Y.) was the main beneficiary of the streak, as she totaled three of game high five goals during the span. Olen and Rotan each put in two goals during that output as well.
Sileo then went on another steak of assists, this time dishing out three to help make the Pioneer lead 18-1. Olen scored the first of those three, followed up by Ross completing her five goal day with the last two. All five of Ross’ goals came from Sileo assists during the game.
Dominique Mosca (Merrick, N.Y.) earned the win in between the pipes, as she made all 10 of her saves on the afternoon during the first half.
