Eisenbrandt Scores 100th Career Goal in Win
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- Senior midfielder Carly Eisenbrandt (Baltimore, Md./Towson) surpassed 100 career goals and the Washington College women's lacrosse scored the final six goals of the game to pull away for a 17-10 win over St. Lawrence University at the "Spring Fling" today in West Palm Beach, Fla.
Washington (2-1) broke a 6-6 deadlock by scoring two free-position goals in the final 97 seconds of the first half as freshman midfielder Alli Dudley (New Windsor, Md./Francis Scott Key) scored with 1:37 left and freehman midfielder Katherine Vincent (Wilton, Conn./Wilton) scored with five seconds to go in the period to give the Shorewomen an 8-6 lead at the intermission.
The Saints (1-2) had trimmed the lead to one goal at 9-8 before back-to-back free-position goals by Vincent gave Washington an 11-8 advantage with 22:35 to plat in the second half. Michaela Maybee and Hannah Calvelli then scored back-to-back goals for Saint Lawrence with 21:48 and 19:45 remaining, respectively, to cut the lead to 11-10. Calvelli's goal came off an assist from Jill Carlton.
Eisenbrandt and the Shorewomen then took over the game. Eisenbrandt found junior attacker Caroline Lovett (Lancaster, Pa./Penn Manor) for a goal with 15:39 left to start Washington's game-ending six-goal run. Eisenbrandt scored her 99th career goal with 14:06 to play and sophomore attacker Carley Kendall (Harleysville, Pa./Souderton Area) added a goal with 13:37 left to push the lead to 14-10.
Eisenbrandt found the back of the net for the 100th time in her collegiate career with 7:33 left. Junior midfielder Emily Hubley (West Chester, Pa./Bayard Rustin) then scored off a feed from Dudley with 5:38 to play before Eisenbrandt closed out the scoring with 2:09 on the clock.
Eisenbrandt, whose three goals and one assist in the game all came in that final six-goal run, is just the 12th Shorewoman ever to reach 100 career goals, but the second in as many games. Hubley, who scored three goals of her own on the day, reached that mark in Friday's 24-14 win over 18th-ranked Susquehanna. Vincent led all players with four goals and 10 draw controls, while Dudley had one goal and three assists. Lovett and junior attacker Catherine Stanley (Freeland, Md./Hereford) scored two goals each. Kendall added one goal and one assist in the victory, while freshman midfielder Cara Pascarella (Dix Hills, N.Y./Half Hollows Hills East) scored one goal.
Three goalies saw time for Washington. Freshman Haylee Solomon (Wantagh, N.Y./Sanford H. Calhoun) played 45:10, making three saves and allowing six goals. Freshman Allison Remenapp (Woodbine, Md./Century) allowed four goals and had no saves in 10:15, while Megan Voss (Finksburg, Md./Garrison Forest) made one save and allowed no goals in 4:35.
Maybee led the Saints with three goals, while Kiera Taussig and Carly VanTassel had two goals and one assist each. Calvelli, Abigail Horan, and Parker Benedict each scored one goal, while Carlton had one assist.
Addie Cunningham played 52:27 in goal for St. Lawrence, allowing 15 goals and making 11 saves. Greta White played 7:33 and made one save while allowing two goals.
Washington doubled up St. Lawrence in shots in the game, 34-17, and controlled 21 of the game's 28 draws.
The Shorewomen will play another game in West Palm Beach tomorrow against Fredonia State at 11:30 a.m.
