DOVER, Del. – Wesley College's women's lacrosse team remains unbeaten at home after defeating Penn State-Abington, 16-8 on Saturday afternoon. The Wolverines (3-2) are 3-0 at Scott D. Miller Stadium this season and their 16 goals were a season-high.
Alyssa Prudente, Wesley's lone senior, had a career-day with 11 points on four goals and a career-high seven assists. Prudente's seven assists is a new Wesley single-game record and she now ranks second all-time at Wesley with 46 career assists. Her 138 total points and 92 goals are both third in school-history.
The Wolverines scored the first four goals of the game with Rylee Gould (2g, 1a) rattling the cage just 22 seconds in off a Prudente assist. Gould's tally was followed up by Jacobs and two-straight by Prudente. Both teams would trade goals the rest of the period and Wesley went into halftime with an 8-4 lead.
Sparked by a goal and three assists by Prudente, Wesley opened the second half on a 4-1 run over the first 10 minutes and 34 seconds to take a 12-5 advantage.
After two goals apiece by both teams, Jessica Franklin scored her second and third goal of the game with 1:22 and 18 seconds, respectively, left in regulation to record Wesley's season-high mark.
Defensively, Wesley was led by Jorden Lutz and Tori Dunbar, who combined for seven of the Wolverines' 15 caused turnovers. Lutz also had a team-high six ground balls while Nina Cornog and Kaylee Miller tallied 11 draw controls between them.
Wesley is back in action on Monday when it hosts Centenary (N.J.) in a 4 pm draw.
