SALISBURY, MD.- Behind seven goals from Lydia McNulty and five more from Erin Scannell, Salisbury Women’s Lacrosse defeated Christopher Newport 17-8 to capture the 19th conference championship in program history.

Coming into the conference championship at a perfect 14-0, the Gulls welcomed in Christopher Newport, the number three ranked team in the Coast to Coast conference. It looked like we might have a close game as Kendall Krause tied the game up at one for CNU just two minutes into the game. But, thats where the Seagulls would go on a run. Lydia McNulty, Julie Talbert and Erin Scannell (3) took SU on a 5-0 run for the 6-1 lead midway through the first half. After a Captains timeout, CNU was able to get two more on the board to cut the lead to four with 3:50 left in the half. From there, Lydia McNulty took over. The Salisbury Senior netted four goals in the final three minutes to give Salisbury the 11-3 lead at the break.

In the second half, CNU was able to get the Salisbury lead to six with nine minutes left in regulation. After a Salisbury timeout, the Gulls woke up and extended the lead to nine with under two minutes to play and held on for the 17-8 win over Christopher Newport for their 19th conference championship in program history. With the win, the Seagulls earn an automatic bid in the NCAA DIII National Tournament
