Vendetti Field, Dudley, Mass.




DUDLEY, Mass. --  Freshman Brooke Marion (South Hadley, Mass.) scored four goals and added a pair of assists for six points to lead Nichols to an 18-2 non-league college women’s lacrosse victory over Massachusetts Maritime Wednesday evening at Vendetti Field.


The host Bison (3-1) jumped out to a 12-0 halftime lead in netting the first 15 markers of the contest, as junior Grace Murphy (Montclair, Va.) added four goals and an assist to finish with five points on the night for the winners, who also received a hat trick and a pair of helpers off the stick of sophomore Alexa Smith (Salem, N.H.).  Junior Erica Antonison (Albertson, N.Y.) collected four goals as well for Nichols, which also received a pair of tallies from junior Talia Hohmann (Marina, Calif.) and a single marker from freshman Kelly Downey (Waltham, Mass.).


Sophomores Shavonne Boyle (Doylestown, Pa.) and Janine Prokscha (Washington, Conn.) each netted goals in the setback for the visiting Buccaneers (0-2), as freshman Katherine Cotton (Kennebunk, Maine) picked up the win in goal for Nichols with one save on the evening.  Sophomore Jenna Breault (Buzzards Bay, Mass.) recorded 10 stops in net in the setback for Massachusetts Maritime, as the Bison outshot the Buccaneers by a 40-5 margin for the contest.


Massachusetts Maritime’s scheduled match at Daniel Webster on Saturday has already been postponed due to unplayable field conditions, as the Buccaneers return to action next Tuesday afternoon by heading to Chestnut Hill, Mass. to take on Wheelock in a non-league outing that begins at 3:30 p.m.  Nichols hosts Westfield State in a non-league match on Saturday afternoon at Vendetti Field beginning at Noon.
