from press release
LOCK HAVEN, Pa. – The No. 4 Lock Haven University lacrosse team (3-0, 1-0 PSAC) improved to 3-0 on the year as the Lady Eagles downed visiting Millersville University (2-1, 0-1 PSAC) 16-2 in the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) opener for both teams.

Less than five minutes into the game, Emily Cilla (Kings Park, N.Y./Kings Park) put LHU up 1-0, but Millersville quickly bounced back with a goal on a free position shot.
With the scored tied 1-1 with 22:49 left in the half, LHU found its offensive groove and rattled off 10 straight goals to close out the opening frame.
LHU led 11-1 at the break and after Millersville tacked on early second half goal, LHU scored five more times.
LHU goalie Heather Sacko (Oreland, Pa./Springfield) made four saves.
