FAIRFIELD, Connecticut - The Marist women's lacrosse team improved to 3-3 with a 15-10 win at Sacred Heart on March 11.

Four different players had hat tricks, including freshman Samantha Mehalick and sophomore Audrey Cerrone in the first half. Seniors Natalie Bonaroti fired three goals and Olivia Pitonzo racked up six points on three goals and three assists. Sophomore Hailey Wagner added a pair of goals and a game-high seven draw controls. The Red Foxes' 15 goals were a season high.

The Pioneers (2-3) got on the board first, but Marist struck back on a run that included three straight scores from Mehalick, which put the Red Foxes in front 4-1. Marist's first half lead stretched to as much as eight when junior Lauren Mazza scored with one second left to make it 11-3. At that point, four of Marist's goals were unassisted while two came off free position shots. 

Sacred Heart crept back into the contest in the next 30 minutes, taking down the Marist lead to four goals with 3:25 remaining. That score would be the third and final of the day for Pioneers senior Alyssa Pearce. 

Both teams fired a combined 64 shots on the afternoon. The Pioneers held an advantage in ground balls (14-12) and caused 15 turnovers. Senior Caitlin DeLaney contributed all over the field with team highs of three goals, five caused turnovers and five ground balls.  

Marist will travel down south to face the Winthrop Eagles, which competed in the NCAA Tournament last year. Opening draw is slated for 5 p.m. March 17.
