Hubley Breaks Single-Game School Record with 11 Draw Controls;
Shipley Surpasses 100 Career Points, Ties Single-Game School Assist Record
CHESTERTOWN, MD -- Sophomore midfielder Emily Hubley (West Chester, PA/Bayard Rustin) broke the single-game school record by recording 11 draw controls, while senior midfielder Mollie Shipley (Denville, NJ/Morris Catholic) tied a single-game school record with seven assists and surpassed 100 career points as the host Washington College women's lacrosse team rolled past visiting Rowan, 17-6, this afternoon on Kibler Field at Roy Kirby, Jr. Stadium.
Rowan (0-2) held a 3-2 lead before the Shorewomen (2-0) scored the final six goals of the first half to take an 8-3 lead into the intermission. Washington scored its final four goals of the half in a span of just 3:29, capped off by a goal by Hubley off an assist from senior attacker Corinne Ziccardi (Baltimore, MD/Loch Raven) with 2:34 to go.
Washington scored the first six goals of the second half to total 12 unanswered goals in all, building a 14-3 lead when Shipley found freshman attacker Carley Kendall (Harleysville, PA/Souderton Area) for her first collegiate goal with 21:00 left in the game. Shipley's 100th career point came one goal earlier when Ziccardi scored with 22:53 to go. Shipley tied the single-game school record with her seventh assist of the contest when she found junior defender/midfielder Kathleen Maleski (Mount Airy, MD/South Carroll) for a goal with 8:33 to play. The record was set in 1983 by Tammy Tiehel. Hubley's 11th draw control came on the final draw of the game following a goal by Rowan's Marissa Micciche with 1:16 left. The previous school record of 10 draw controls in a single game was set by Mandy Paré in 1998.
Ziccardi scored a career high-tying five goals in today's game for the Shorewomen and assisted on two others for a career high-tying seven total points. Hubley had two goals and two assists to go along with her 11 draw controls, while sophomore attacker Caroline Lovett (Lancaster, PA/Penn Manor) scored two goals and had one assist and junior midfielder Carly Eisenbrandt (Baltimore, MD/Towson) finished with a pair of goals. Hubley's 11 draw controls also matched the Centennial Conference record (kept since 2006 and achieved twice by Franklin & Marshall's Jen Pritchard during the 2007 and 2008 seasons).
Micciche led Rowan with three goals in the loss. Jamie Blondina added two goals, while Vicky Sucharski had one goal and one assist.
Senior goalie Stephanie Seibert (Clear Spring, MD/Mercersburg Academy [PA]) made four saves and allowed five goals in 51:27 of playing time for Washington. Junior Rachelle Martinez (Silver Spring, MD/Northwood) finished the game in goal for the Shorewomen, making three saves and allowing one goal. Lindsay Barrie played 50:17 in goal for the Profs and allowed 15 goals while making nine saves. Mary Narozanick made one save and allowed two goals in 9:43 for Rowan.
The Shorewomen held a 31-18 advantage in shots in the game and used their pressure defense to force the Profs into more turnovers (21) than shots. Rowan also was just 14-for-26 on clears in the contest. Washington held a 19-6 advantage in draws in the contest, controlling 12 of the 13 draws in the second half.
The win was just the Shorewomen's fourth in 11 all-time meetings with the Profs, though all four of those have come in the past five years. Washington's previous three wins against Rowan were by two goals, one goal, and one goal respectively.
The Shorewomen return to action Tuesday with a 4:00 p.m. home game against St. Mary's.
