Wesley Outlasts Randolph For First Win of the Season

DOVER, Del. - The Wesley College Women's Lacrosse team received another stellar effort from goaltender Savannah Clough and used a well-balance offense to hold off Randolph College, earning their first win of the season with a 15-11 victory over the Wildcats. 

Clough made 18 saves in net, grabbed a caused turnover, and scooped three ground balls to earn the win between the pipes. Eight different Wolverines found the goal with Rodneisha Scott, Foley Wassmuth, and Bailey Olds each netting three to lead the charge. Ashley Luna led the team with two assists and scored a goal as well. Summer Stone led the team with four ground balls and registered a team-best three caused turnovers.

Despite being outshot 29-21, Wesley made the most of their opportunities. The squad converted 14 of their 17 clear attempts and earned 17 caused turnovers as well.

The Wolverines began the game in a 2-1 hole, but rattled off four straight scores to take a 5-2 lead. After a Randolph tally, Olds netted back-to-back scores to give the team a 7-3 advantage. Wassmuth, Allison Perugini, and Brianna Bacon each scored before halftime to give the home team a 10-5 lead at the break.

In the second half, Rodneisha Scott led the Wesley offense, scoring all three of her goals after the break. The Wildcats rallied for three straight goals to cut the deficit to 13-10, but the Wolverines responded. Scott scored her third of the second half, and Nyi Wright provided the dagger with 3:25 remaining to give the Navy and White a 15-11 victory.

The squad improved to 1-1 on the season, earning their first victory of the season. Wesley will take on Misericordia University on March 2.
