  • PISCATAWAY, NJ - Sophomore midfielder Kate Shomo (Medford Lakes, NJ) scored four goals and junior midfielder Katie Batiuk (Jackson, NJ) tacked on three more to lead the Rutgers University women’s lacrosse team in its win over Saint Joseph’s, 11-8, at Yurcak Field on Sunday afternoon.

    Saint Joseph’s Jessica Westlake kicked off the scoring in the first half with a goal off of a pass from Lindsey McCool to give the Hawks the early 1-0 lead. The first half featured 14 of the games’ 19 goals and after the Hawks scored three of the games first five tallies, RU answered back.

    Down 3-2 at the 23:31 mark of the first half, Batiuk, freshman attacker Nina Frankoski (Maplewood, NJ) and Shomo scored RU’s next six first half goals and helped Rutgers head into the break with an 8-6 lead.

    Unlike the first half, the second half featured no goals in the first 21 minutes and included a number of saves by both RU freshman goalie Sandra Abel (Monrovia, MD) and Hawks goalie Sarah Magan.

    After an offensive stalemate for much of the second frame, Frankoski registered the eventual game-winning goal at the 8:30 mark, and an additional one just 57 seconds later to give RU the 10-6 advantage and enough breathing room to close out the victory.  

    Abel finished the game with 10 saves and earned her fourth victory of the season.

    The win pushed the Scarlet Knights’ winning streak to two games and improved their record to 4-2 on the season. They are also 0-1 in BIG EAST Conference play.

    The loss was the Hawks’ second in a row as they drop to 1-3 on the season.

    The Scarlet Knights will be back in action on Wednesday, March 22 when they host Monmouth at 7:00 p.m. at Yurcak Field.
