The Adelphi women’s lacrosse team visited Philadelphia University for a non-conference contest Saturday afternoon. From the get go, it was all Adelphi as they compiled 11 unanswered goals in the first half alone while holding the hosts to just one.
When all was said and done, eight women managed to score at least one goal and when the final horn sounded, the score read 21-3 in favor of the Panther stickwomen. With the win, Adelphi advances to 3-0 while the Rams drop their season opener.
Erica Devito was the top point earner in the win, tallying nine points on five goals and four assists. Teammate Sara Sangiorgio was behind her with six goals while Devan Crimi, Marissa Mills, Danielle Jaycox and Alexa Froccaro each chipped in with two goals. Angela Oliveto and Meg Brown rounded out the scoring with a goal each while Felicia Mills won five draw controls.
As a team, the Panthers dominated on all ends, holding an advantage in shots, 44-6, ground balls, 14-7, draw controls, 15-10, caused turnovers, 6-2, and turnovers, 7-24.
In just the opening 1:40, Devito began what would be the start of 11 straight goals on a successful free position shot. Within a matter of 2:55, Sangiorgio dumped in three goals, with one of them coming on a Devito assist to quickly make it a 4-0 game.
Marissa Mills then tacked on her first of two goals in the game with Erica Devito following that up with her second and third goals, further putting the Rams in an unfortunate 7-0 deficit all before the midway point of the first half.
The Panthers didn’t stop there. Crimi and Jaycox also made good on shots while Sangiorio tacked on another two to make it 11 in a row. The Rams finally got on the board courtesy of Emily Ray who managed to get one past cage minder Jordann Dempsey. It proved to be the only goal in 38:25 of action for Dempsey, who made just one save and earned her third win of the season.
