April 19, 2014
EASTON, Pa. - The Lafayette women's lacrosse program concluded the 2014 season with a 19-13 victory over Iona on Saturday afternoon at Fisher Stadium. Five members of the Class of 2014 were honored before the start of play today including Laura Kleiber and Ana White. Kleiber scored six goals in her last collegiate contest to power the Leopard's attack. White finished her career as the Patriot League leader in both draw controls and caused turnovers.
The Leopards jumped out to a quick 3-0 lead less than five minutes into the contest on two tallies from Kleiber and one goal from White. Iona responded with back-to-back goals before Wilhelmsen found the back of the cage to increase the Leopards lead to 4-2 at the 21:40 mark in the first half.
The Leopards and Gaels traded the next four goals over the next five minutes of action to move in front 6-4. The Maroon & White proceeded to score five consecutive goals, two from Wilhelmsen and one apiece by Elander, Kleiber and McCabe, to increase their lead to seven. Iona answered with two straight goals before Wilhelmsen and Kleiber converted on free position shots in the final two and a half minutes of play in the opening half to give the Leopards a 13-6 edge at the break.
