No. 7 Saints blast Chowan behind Davis’ outburst

STAFF REPORTS

First-year conference foe Chowan learned the hard way why the Limestone women’s lacrosse team is ranked seventh in the nation on Saturday afternoon at Saints Field.

Carleigh Davis led the Saints with four goals, while Courtney Lafler and junior midfielder Kendra Sheppard added three goals each to power the Saints to a 23-3 win.

Marina Jozokos, freshman midfielder Lauren Chong, Savannah McAtamney-Rasch and Shannon Sisk recorded two goals each.

Limestone didn’t waste any time putting one in the back of the net to take the early 1-0 lead with less than one minute into play.

The Saints played primarily on the offensive end of the field the entire half as the Limestone back line held the Hawks shot less the entire half. The offensive attack worked their magic as the Saints scored 15 total goals in the first half to take a 15-0 lead into the break.

Chowan came out of break with momentum to record its first shot and goal of the game at the 25:13 minute mark to end the possible shutout.

Limestone scored two consecutive goals before the Hawks recorded another goal to make the score 17-2 with 18:58 left in regulation.

The Saints held the Hawks to only one more goal as Limestone tacked on six more to finalize the 23-3 victory. The Saints held a 31-5 shot advantage over the Hawks.

The game was dedicated to Lax-4-Life which is a suicide awareness and prevention foundation.

The Saints return to action on Tuesday at Converse College. The Conference Carolinas game is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m.
