SU Women's Lacrosse Rolls CNU; Will Host CAC Championship

Posted: Updated:

 

Salisbury, MD.- The postseason kicked off Sunday afternoon for the top-seeded Salisbury University women's lacrosse team, as the Sea Gulls trounced the fifth-seeded Christopher Newport University, 21-4, in a Capital Athletic Conference semifinal at Sea Gull Stadium.

After losing its first game in almost two years last week, and breaking a 39 game win streak, Salisbury (17-1) bounced back in a big way Sunday, extending three more winning streaks. The Gulls reached the 102-consecutive game mark in the CAC while also holding a 37 game winning streak at home. With the win, SU also extended undefeated streak against CNU, holding a 13-0 record.

Salisbury got off to a hot start, registering 10 goals in the first 15 minutes of the game. The Captains would get their only goal of the half with 13:38 remaining.

Senior Shannon Carta opened up the scoring just one minute and 35 seconds into the game, netting one on a free position shot. Carta would add another free position goal just two minutes later, she led the Gulls with 5 goals on the day.

By half, Salisbury had totaled 23 shots and just three turnovers. The Sea Gulls limited the Captains to just three shots, while forcing CNU to turn it over nine times.

The Gulls opened up the second half just as they did the first, striking fast on offense. Kate Haker found Kara O'Rourke less than two minutes into the half. SU would take a commanding 17-1 lead with 21:54 remaining in the second.

10 Sea Gulls scored a goal in the games, while senior Ashton Wheatley recorded three saves and reached the 60-win mark in her career. Junior Alyssa Harmke finished the game making two saves on four shots.

The Sea Gulls have won 13 CAC titles dating back to 2000, and have won 11 straight since the 2003 season. With Sunday's win, the Sea Gulls will host second-seeded York College on Saturday, May 3 at Sea Gull Stadium. The game time is to be determined.
