POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. – The Marist women’s lacrosse team (9-2, 3-0 MAAC) picked up a 19-7 win over Niagara in a Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) contest on Wednesday afternoon. With the Red Foxes’ sixth straight win, Marist broke the program record for most consecutive wins in a season, previously set in 2009 with five in a row. Marist improved to 9-2 overall, matching its win total from last season, and remains a perfect 3-0 in MAAC play to maintain its first-place standing.

Senior Tierney Larson (Fairfield, Conn.) led the Red Foxes with eight points, including two goals and six assists. Junior Kirsten Viscount (Smithtown, N.Y.) had a game-high five goals and one assist while classmate Emily Leonard (Brookfield, Conn.) had one goal and four assists.

Freshman goalkeeper Abigail Witczak (Mendham, N.J.) and junior Liz Holmes (Longmeadow, Mass.) combined for 12 saves in the net. Senior Jamie Romano (Kings Park, N.Y.) had three goals and won a team-high three draw controls alongside Viscount.

Junior Erin Schroeder (Vero Beach, Fla.), freshman Natalie Bonaroti (Pittsburgh, Pa.) and senior Olivia Waters (Manhasset, N.Y.) each added one goal for Marist.

Viscount and Leonard combined for three goals in the opening four minutes of the game to give Marist an early 3-0 lead with 26:11 left in the first half. Carrie-Jo Farrugia put Niagara on the board with a goal at the 25:34 mark to cut the Red Fox lead, 3-1. Marist scored the ensuing five goals, including two each from Romano and Gionta and one by Viscount, to push the Red Foxes ahead of the Purple Eagles, 8-1, with 16:47 left in the half.

Brittany Delano broke the silence for Niagara at the 12:33 mark by converting on a free position shot to pull her Purple Eagles within seven of Marist. The Red Foxes would net four more goals before time expired, including two by Viscount and one each by Gionta and Larson, as Marist took a 14-3 lead at the half.

Captains Romano and Larson kicked off the second half with back-to-back goals in the opening minutes to propel Marist ahead, 16-3 with 25:44 to go. Niagara’s Erin Patenaude netted a goal off a pass from Farrugia as the Purple Eagles trailed Marist 16-4. Schroeder scored for the Red Foxes at the 18:32 mark to put Marist back ahead by 13.
