POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. – The Marist Women’s Lacrosse team jumped out to a quick 7-0 lead and never looked back as it closed out the home portion of its regular season with a 14-11 win over Bucknell. Feeding off the emotion of pre-game Senior Day festivities and a loud crowd, who just witness the men’s lacrosse squad defeat Siena in overtime, the Red Foxes made sure that they would net their fourth straight win and seventh in eight games with their outstanding start.

In fitting fashion, the leaders both offensively and defensively came from the Red Foxes’ senior class as Amanda Tuck (Mamaroneck, N.Y.) and Ashley Miller (Montville, N.J.) spearheaded the offense with four goals each, while Ashley Casiano (South Windsor, Conn.) stopped a season-high 15 shots in goal.

Fellow seniors Laura Lucchesi (Syracuse, N.Y.) and Jessica Irvine (Hauppauge, N.Y.) rounded out the impact of the Class of 2013 with two draw controls and two ground balls, respectively.

The Red Foxes start lighting up the scoreboard early as Tuck found Miller for the game’s first goal just 61 seconds in.

After junior Bailey Knapton (Canandaigua, N.Y.) picked up a ground ball following a Bucknell turnover, she quickly hit sophomore Kirsten Viscount (Smithtown, N.Y.) in transition as the Red Foxes would score goal number two at 27:43.

Less than a minute later at 26:45, after a Jamie Romano (Kings Park, N.Y.) draw control earned Marist possession again, freshman Allison Gionta (Eastport, N.Y.) converted for her ninth goal of the year.

A turnover deep in Bucknell’s zone that was caused by Miller set up Marist’s fourth score as junior Tierney Larson hit Romano for a one-timer shot at 26:02.

The Red Foxes break-neck scoring pace continued for their next three goals as Tuck, Miller and Larson registered markers between 22:38 and 19:46, including a 25-second turn around between Tuck and Miller’s tallies.

With the score 7-0 in Marist’s favor, Bucknell would mount a four-goal unanswered streak from 19:22 to 10:22 to tighten the game up to a manageable 7-4 deficit.

Looking to rekindle their early momentum and extend their lead before halftime, the Red Foxes succeeded on doing that as a pair of Tuck goals at 7:20 and 6:59 kick started a 4-0 run that would take Marist into the locker room up 11-4. The final two goals of the period were scored by Miller at 1:46 and Viscount at 0:50.

At the half, a quick look at the statistics showed that accurate shooting by the Red Foxes (11 goals on 17 shots), a 10-6 lead in draw controls and nine stops by Casiano in net aided in the seven-point advantage for Marist.

Gionta’s second goal of the game just 23 seconds into the final period would give Marist its’ largest lead of the contest at 12-4.

Beginning with a Madison Hurwitz goal at 28:31, Bucknell would close out the remainder of the game on a 7-2 run.

Marist’s 13th goal was scored by Miller at 19:44, while its’ 14th goal was netted with another Larson to Tuck connection at 14:06. Of note, three of Tuck’s four goals came courtesy of assists by Larson.

The game would go final at 14-11 in favor of the Red Foxes, who improved to 8-8 on the year after a trying non-conference schedule left the squad struggling at 1-7 as of March 19.

For the contest, Bucknell outshot Marist 31-27, though the Red Foxes held advantages in draw controls 16-11 and goalie saves at 15-7.

The Red Foxes will close out its regular season on Saturday, April 27 on the road against the MAAC-leading Canisius Golden Griffins. Canisius currently stands a game ahead of Marist in the standings at 5-0 versus 4-1. The matchup is slated for an 11 a.m. start.

Record Book Update: With her four goals, Ashley Miller moved into ninth place all-time in Marist’s career record book with 84 scores … With four helpers, Tierney Larson became just the sixth Red Fox all-time to accumulate 50 career assists … With two ground balls, Ashley Casiano moved into sole possession of third place all-time with 126 for her career.
