POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. – After watching their male counterparts register 23 goals in the opening game of Saturday’s lacrosse doubleheader, the women came out in the second match of the afternoon and electrified the crowd with 22 goals of their own on their way to a 22-8 win over Niagara. In the MAAC conference opener for both teams, the Red Foxes reared back and unleashed the highest offensive output since March 31, 2008 when Marist notched 22 goals at home versus Lafayette.

Junior Tierney Larson (Fairfield, Conn.) tied Pamela Brown’s 15-year old program record with six assists as she finished with a team-high seven points. Four teammates: Kirsten Viscount (Smithtown, N.Y.), Ashley Miller (Montville, N.J.), Lexi Brannigan (Loudonville, N.Y.) and Jamie Romano (Kings Park, N.Y.) all registered hat tricks in the win.

To start the game, the teams traded goals as Niagara’s Maria Battista netted the contest’s first point with a marker at 27:43. Off of an Amanda Tuck (Mamaroneck, N.Y.) draw control the Red Foxes responded just 16 seconds later with a goal from Miller.

Two more goals for Marist at 24:04 by Brannigan and 23:16 by Viscount would jump the Red Foxes out to a 3-1 lead.

A 2-1 goal swing between 22:45 and 21:05 by the Purple Eagles would make it a 4-3 game. Larson netted Marist’s lone goal during this span.

With just a 4-3 advantage, the Red Foxes would up their offensive proficiency as they ran off a five goal unanswered streak, that would eventually expand out to 10-2 over the final 19:13 of the half. Romano was one of five Marist players that scored over this period of time. Between 8:42 and 6:34, the junior netted a hat trick on 3-of-3 shooting. Viscount (2), Miller (2), Brannigan (1), Tuck (1) and sophomore Erin Schroeder (Vero Beach, Fla.) rounded out Marist’s goal scorers for the half.

Besides the Red Foxes’ varied array of goal scorers, dominance on draw controls allowed the team to garner necessary possession to notch 10 goals in the final 19:13 of the first. Viscount led the team with a four draw controls during this span, along with two draw controls a piece by Bailey Knapton (Canadaigua, N.Y.) and Romano, Marist held an 8-4 margin over Niagara in that category.

Coming out of the locker room with a 14-5 lead, the Red Foxes polished off their first MAAC win of the year by outscoring the Purple Eagles 8-3 in the final 30 minutes.

Viscount closed out her career-day with two more goals to cap her effort at five tallies, while Miller completed her third four-goal game of the year at 23:35 off of a Larson one-timer pass and Brannigan registered her second hat trick of the year with goal number three early in the half.

After freshman Brittany Tricarico (Port Jefferson, N.Y.) caused a Niagara turnover and consequently scored the first goal of her young career at 13:34, it was Larson to Tuck connection at 11:45 that would tie Marist’s 15-year old single-game assists record. The junior attacker had twice before registered five helpers in a game during the 2013 season (3/16 v. George Mason and 3/21 at Stetson).

Two goals, a Brooke Wickham (Penn Yan, N.Y.) marker and a Jackie DiMaria (Dix Hills, N.Y.) score in the final 6:13 would close out the game’s scoring at 22-8.

For the game, Marist outshot Niagara 33-21 with a 27-13 advantage in shots on goal. The Red Foxes also held leads in draw controls 19-13, ground balls 18-16 and caused turnovers 11-4. As a team, Marist turned the ball over just eight times. Individually, Romano won seven draw controls, while Viscount was close behind with six. Senior Ashley Casiano (South Windsor, Conn.) played the opening half and earned the victory with three saves. Sophomore goalkeeper Liz Holmes (Longmeadow, Mass.) made two saves in the final 30 minutes in relief.

The Red Foxes will be back in action on Wednesday, April 3 at Fairfield. The opening draw of the road test will be at 3 p.m.

Of Note … Marist’s 22 goal output is tied for ninth in Division 1 women’s lacrosse for most goals in a single game in 2013 … Tierney Larson’s six assists are tied for sixth in the Division 1 individual rankings for most assists in a game this season … With 29 helpers through 11 games, Larson is just four assists shy of tying Lindsey Diener’s single-season program record of 33 in 2008; Larson is in sole possession of second place … With 47 draw controls on the season, Jamie Romano is five shy of tying her previous single-season program record of 52; her career total of 146 is four away from tying Jamine Aponte’s program career-high of 150.
