THE RUNDOWN:  

  • Despite outshooting the Amcats 11-2 in the first half, Wheaton was only able to enter into halftime with a 1-0 lead. Senior forward Kelsey Buckley was credited with the lone goal of the half, scoring unassisted in the eleventh minute. 
  • Katie Peters scored on a penalty corner in the first half without any help, firing the ball to the back of the net five minutes into the period for a 2-0 Lyons lead. 
  • Wheaton's offense turned it on in the 53rd minute, with consecutive goals from JoAnn BourgoinMichelle Connolly and Buckley, respectively, in just over a three minute span to go up 5-0. 
  • First year forward Hannah LeClair tacked on a sixth Wheaton goal just two minutes later after getting a stick on a ball from senior midfielder Hannah Southard
  • Sarah Yates capped the Lyons' attack after two attempts on the goalie's pads, lifting the lead to 7-0 with her first goal of the season. 
  • Prior to Yates' goal, Taryn Rebelo stepped in to buy the Amcats more time with her first defensive save of the year. 
  • Anna Maria did not waste a last-minute attempt to score, however, and were ultimately able to convert on a penalty corner (Allyson Shaw from Anne Melanson) with :45 left in regulation. 
  • Morgan Karnes picks up a win after making the start for the Lyons, but was unchallenged by the Amcats in just under 58 minutes of work. Gretta Reilly made an appearance as well, picking up a save in the final 12.5 minutes. 
  • Bryanna Tobin slips to 0-2-1, but picks up 8 saves on the evening. Danielle Huston did not see any shots in 2:42 between the pipes.
