  • STORRS, CT – Behind six points by junior midfielder Katie Batiuk (Jackson, NJ) and three goals and two assists from freshman midfielder Katy Lawrence (Pylesville, MD), the Rutgers University women’s lacrosse team defeated the Connecticut Huskies 14-12 for its first BIG EAST win of the season on Saturday evening.

    The Huskies opened the scoring barrage just one minute and twenty seconds into the first half; however, the Scarlet Knights responded immediately.

    RU got first half goals from Batiuk, Lawrence, sophomore attacker Kate Shomo (Medford Lakes, NJ), freshman midfielder Michelle Poole (Hackettstown, NJ), and junior tri-captain midfielder Jamie Farewell (Medford Lakes, NJ) and went into the break with a 6-4 advantage over BIG EAST foe Connecticut.

    Batiuk scored four of her game-high five goals in the second half to pace Rutgers’ offensive attack and while the Huskies were able to keep pace with the Scarlet Knights, RU countered each Connecticut goal with one of its own. Rutgers staved off three late Huskie goals and came out with the 14-12 victory.

    The Scarlet Knights got eight saves from freshman goalie Sandra Abel (Monrovia, MD), as she earned her sixth win of the season.

    With the win, the Scarlet Knights improved to 6-5 on the season and picked up their first win in BIG EAST Conference action. RU is 1-2 in BIG EAST play.

    The loss dropped the Huskies to 3-7. They are a winless 0-3 in BIG EAST Conference action.

    The Scarlet Knights will continue their BIG EAST Conference slate on Saturday, April 15 when they play host to the Orange of Syracuse at 3:30 p.m. at Ronald N. Yurcak Field.
