Women's Lacrosse Snaps Losing Streak with Win over Mitchell

New Haven, Conn. – Sophomore Courtney Cacace (Brookfield, Conn.) of the Albertus Magnus College women's lacrosse team scores a game-high six goals and two assists for eight points as the Falcons snapped a five-game winning streak by defeating in-state rival Mitchell College, 16-10, in non-conference play on Thursday evening at Celentano Field.

FINAL SCORE: Albertus Magnus 16 | Mitchell 10
RECORDS: Albertus Magnus (4-7) | Mitchell (2-5)


Albertus Magnus opened regulation scoring three unanswered goals over the first four minutes of play before a man-up goal from Mitchell brought the score to within two, 3-1. Shortly after, sophomore Sabrina Pohlig (West Palm Beach, Fla.) scored back-to-back goals before Cacace scored three straight to extend the hosts' lead to seven, 8-1, with 11:33 left on the clock.

A minute later, Mitchell would score its final goal of the half at the 10:38 mark, but would head into halftime down, 9-2, as Korina Zelaya (Trumbull, Conn.) scored on a free position shot at the 1:54 mark.
