Women's Lacrosse Falls To Susquehanna, Win Streak Snapped At Three

Claremont, Calif. - Susquehanna used an 8-0 run in the first half to open up a 10-1 lead and captured a 17-7 win over Pomona-Pitzer on Monday evening at Merritt Field.

The loss levels Pomona-Pitzer's record at 3-3 on the year after it won its previous three contests, while Susquehanna improves to 3-0 on the early part of its 2013 campaign.

Sophomore Julie Necarsulmer (Kennett Square, Pa. - pictured) had three of the goals for Pomona-Pitzer, while junior midfielder Logan Galansky (Denver, Colo.) had a goal and two assists. Susquehanna was led Emma Ehler and Michelle McGinniss with five goals apiece, while McGinniss added eight draw controls and six ground balls.

Freshman Aubrey Douglass (Piedmont, Calif.) scored for Pomona-Pitzer 2:03 into the game after Susquehanna had taken a 2-0 lead, but the Crusaders scored the next eight goals, four by McGinniss, to take control of the game. 

Necarsulmer stopped the run and scored with six seconds left in the half to make it 12-3 going into intermission, but Meredith Crane scored 2:45 into the second half for the Crusaders, and they were able to maintain the double-digit lead the rest of the way. Freshmen Grace Geller (Berkeley, Calif.) and Sarah Markowitz (Pacific Palisades, Calif.) added second-half goals for the Sagehens.

Pomona-Pitzer will be back in action tomorrow for a 7 p.m. contest against King's.
