  • PISCATAWAY, NJ - Behind four goals and three assists from junior midfielder Katie Batiuk (Jackson, NJ), the Rutgers University women’s lacrosse team defeated the Monmouth Hawks, 14-5, for its third straight victory on Wednesday evening at Ronald N. Yurcak Field.

    A Batiuk goal at the 22:58 mark of the first half opened the scoring for the Scarlet Knights and goals from freshmen midfielder Michelle Poole (Hackettstown, NJ), attacker Nina Frankoski (Maplewood, NJ), midfielder Katy Lawrence (Pylesville, MD) and senior Kat Holley (Pennington, NJ) would give RU a commanding 7-0 lead going into the halftime.

    Monmouth’s Megan Nutter scored just 19 seconds into the second half to put the Hawks on the board; however, their inability to put together unanswered goals proved to be problematic.

    Batiuk, Frankoski, Poole, Holley, Lawrence and junior midfielder Jamie Farewell (Medford Lakes, NJ) all scored second half goals to pace Rutgers and lead the Scarlet Knights to the 13-5 victory.  

    Monmouth goalie Monica Johnson was peppered with 31 Rutgers shots throughout the game and came up with 10 saves on the evening. Rutgers freshman goalie Sandra Abel (Monrovia, MD) was forced to stop just four shots on her way to her fifth victory of the season.

    With the win, the Scarlet Knights improved to 5-2 on the season. RU is 0-1 in BIG EAST play.

    The loss dropped the Hawks to 1-6 through seven games on the season.

    The Scarlet Knights will return to action and play their second BIG EAST Conference game of the season on Saturday, March 25, when they head to Washington, D.C. to take on Georgetown at 1:00 p.m. Georgetown is currently ranked fourth in the nation and holds a record of 4-1 heading into this weekend’s match-up.
