Navy Pounces on Davidson and Cruises to Win
from Press Release
ANNAPOLIS, Md. – The No. 19 Navy women's lacrosse team raced out to a 7-0 lead behind Loren Generi's three goals and two assists during the spurt, and Davidson was never able to recover as it fell to the Mids on the road 14-5 Sunday afternoon at the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium.
The Wildcats (0-2) fell to 1-5 all-time vs. Navy, which remained undefeated at 4-0. All four of their wins have come against Big South opponents this year.
Led by Generi, Navy held a 6-0 lead after the first 30 minutes and tacked on one more goal at the start of the second half by Generi, before Emily Rademacher halted the shutout for Davidson with her fourth goal of the season.
The Mids' Generi finished the game with nine points on five goals and four assists. Katie Gallagher followed with four points on three goals and an assist, while Jill Coughlin and Kaitlan Moynihan added two scores apiece.
Rademacher would add one more goal later in the second half, Davidson's third of the game, to pace the team with two goals on the day.
Also scoring for the Wildcats was Emma Sissman (5 draw controls and 2 groundballs), Ann Fucigna and Lucy Sexton. Emily Cooke picked up her third assist of the year and 66th of her career, moving 12 away from setting the Wildcat all-time record.
The freshman duo of Nicole Pettiglio and Katherine Rueger registered their first collegiate points on an assist each as part of Davidson's final two goals in the last 1:48 to make it 14-5.
Davidson held an 11-9 edge on draw controls led by Sissman and Rademacher, who picked up three on the day. Navy caused 16 turnovers and picked up 24 groundballs, while out-shooting the 'Cats, 30-8.
Goalie Katy Boyle matched her career-high with 10 saves, while the Mids' Annie Foky (4) and Cori Caggiano (1) split time between the pipes and combined for five saves.
Davidson continues its four-game road trip with a visit to George Washington next Saturday, March 1, at 1 p.m.
