Finnegan had six goals and two assists for eight points.
Women's Lacrosse Pulls Off the Win

April 1, 2008

Reading, Pa. (Apr. 1, 2008) -Three Knights combined for 19 of Neumann's 23 goals as the team was able to notch two separate five-goal scoring streaks to offset nineteen goals from Alvernia College in a 23-19 win Tuesday afternoon in Pennsylvania Athletic Conference women's lacrosse action.


Alvernia took an 8-4 lead on Walls' third of the game with eight minutes left in the first half, but after Sippel's fourth of the day gave Alvernia a 9-5 lead, Neumann scored five straight and six of the last seven goals of the half to take an 11-10 lead at the break. Junior midfielder Gabby D'Ambrosio (Mount Laurel, N.J./Holy Cross) scored two of her game-high eight goals during the final 5:15 of the half.


Alvernia opened the second half with two goals to take a 12-11 lead, but Neumann answered with three straight to regain the lead at 14-12. Walls then scored unassisted and tallied her sixth of the day after two from Alvernia senior McKenna Shafer to give the Crusaders a 16-14 lead with just under 20 minutes to play.


Neumann sophomore Colleen Finnegan (Pearl River, N.Y./Pearl River), who finished with six goals for the Knights, scored three during a 5-0 stretch that gave the Knights a 19-16 lead with 10:56 to go. Junior captain Rachael DiCicco (South Dennis, NJ/Middle Township) was able to pepper the win with five goals of her own to help seal the deal for the Knights.


Alvernia trimmed that gap to one at 19-18 and 20-19, but Neumann scored the final three goals of the game in the last 6:22 to earn the win.


Neumann will travel to Scranton University on Thursday, April 3rd for a 6:00PM start.
