EASTON, Pa. – A strong defensive effort held Wagner to just six goals on Wednesday evening at Rappolt Field in Easton, Pa. as the Lafayette women’s lacrosse team ran past the Seahawks for a 16-6 victory.

Junior Ana White tallied three goals and six assists to go along with five ground balls and seven draw controls to lead the Leopards all over the field. Senior Addie Godfrey, third in the nation in goals per game, added five scores, while senior Jessica Rothstein and junior Laura Kleiber notched three goals apiece.

Two Leopards earned their first goals of the season as senior Ana Drehwing recorded her first mark since the 2011 season and sophomore Katie Elander scored her first career goal.

The Leopards held the edge in all of the major statistical categories including a commanding 20-4 advantage in draw controls and holding the Seahawks to just 12 shots on the evening, forcing them into 21 turnovers.

Lafayette and Wagner traded goals in the opening 12 minutes as Kleiber and Godfrey tallied the first two scores of the game, followed by marks from Wagner’s Annie O’Connor and Jessica Mills to tie the game at 2 with 18:08 to play in the half.

Following that second Wagner goal, Lafayette went on a six-goal burst to take a 7-2 lead into the halftime break and an 8-2 advantage before the Seahawks ended the run with 27:46 to play in the second stanza.

After two Seahawk tallies to pull the Leopard lead within four, Lafayette again shut down Wagner’s hopes at a comeback with four straight scores, including two from White.

Drehwing notched her tally at the 10:22 mark of the second half on a feed from White, and Elander posted the final goal of the game, again on a White assist, to put the final score at 16-6.

The Leopards return to Fisher Stadium on Saturday afternoon as they take on Delaware on Senior Day. Opening draw is set for 4 p.m.
