SWARTHMORE, Pa. - The Swarthmore College women's lacrosse team (7-5, 1-4 CC) overpowered the Bryn Mawr Owls (0-10, 0-5 CC) on Saturday afternoon to pick up its first Centennial Conference win of the season, 18-5.
Sophomore Annelise Mowry netted six goals to lead the way for the Garnet offense.
The Owls struck first less than three minutes into the game with a Mae Carlson goal but Swarthmore would quickly respond with a goal a minute later by junior Emily Evans. Evans finished the game with a hat-trick and one assist.
Evans' goal sparked the Swat offense to score nine of the next 10 goals and take 10-2 lead into halftime.
The Garnet offense riddled the Owls' goalkeeper with 26 shots on goal while allowing Bryn Mawr only 13.
Defense stood out once again for Swarthmore, causing 10 Bryn Mawr turnovers and allowing only four Owl shots in the second half. Senior goalkeeper Allison Grein allowed only two goals and stopped eight shots.
The second half wasn't much different for the Swat offense, scoring eight goals in the half. Freshman Nicole Vanchieri would score the last goal for the Garnet to make her the third Swarthmore player with a hat trick in the game. Vanchieri had two assists in the game as well.
Sophomores Marie Mutryn and Maddie Williams would each score two goals and an assist on the day.
