Women's Lacrosse Falls at Home to Saint Joseph's (Conn.)

New Haven, Conn. - Despite a hat trick from from sophomore's Courtney Cacace (Brookfield, Conn.) and Kaitlin D'Agostino (Hamden, Conn.), the Albertus Magnus College women's lacrosse team came up short at home, 9-7, to in-state foe the University of Saint Joseph's (Conn.) in a Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) battle on Monday evening at Celentano Field.

D'Agostino started things off for the Falcons scoring her first of the game, off a nice feed from Alex Chan (Monroe, N.Y.), to give the hosts the early edge, 1-0, less than 45 seconds in. Five minutes later, Saint Joseph's (Conn.) went on a 4-0 scoring run to take over the lead, 4-1, but sophomore Sabrina Pohlig (West Palm Beach, Fl.) cut the visitors' lead in half, 4-2, with her seventh of the season.

Despite outscoring the Blue Jays, 2-1, over the final 10 minutes of the half, the Falcons would trail by one, 5-4, at the half.

The Blue Jays opened the second half with a 3-1 run to take an 8-5 lead over Albertus before back-to-back goals from Cacace and D'Agostino brought the score to within one, 8-7, with 9:21 remaining. However, Saint Joseph's sealed the conference win, 9-7, after scoring a goal at the 4:29 mark.
