LOUDONVILLE, N.Y. – Coming off of a hard-fought lost at Fairfield on Wednesday, the Marist Women’s Lacrosse team came out on Saturday afternoon on a mission and controlled the scoreboard versus the host Siena Saints from the opening draw through the final buzzer. After Kirsten Viscount (Smithtown, N.Y.) found the back of the net 84 seconds into the game, the Red Foxes would roll on their way to a 13-4 victory over the Saints to improve to 5-8 overall and 2-1 in the MAAC.

Jamie Romano (Kings Park, N.Y.) led three Red Foxes with hat tricks as the junior finished with four goals. Senior Ashley Miller (Montville, N.J.) and Viscount each accounted for three goals each. Junior Tierney Larson (Fairfield, Conn.) tied Marist’s single-season record with a team-high three assists on the day.

Senior goalkeeper Ashley Casiano (South Windsor, Conn.) led a stalwart defensive effort with 12 saves and three ground balls.

The scoring on Saturday began fast as Viscount took a pass from Allison Gionta (Eastport, N.Y.) and netted the first goal of the game at 28:36. 30 seconds later, Viscount would put Marist up 2-0 over Siena with an unassisted marker.

After a Katie Maguire goal for Siena at 24:42, the Red Foxes would rattle off four unanswered goals; two each from Romano and Miller. In less than seven minutes of play, the game went from 2-1 to 6-1.

A trading of goals between 13:29 and 11:35 sent the game into intermission at 7-2. Viscount registered Marist’s goal off of a Gionta assist.

Six saves by Casiano played an important role in the Red Foxes’ five goal advantage. The senior made three of those stops off of free-position shots.

Any hopes of Siena coming out after halftime quick was quelled almost immediately when Larson found a cutting Amanda Tuck (Mamaroneck, N.Y.) for goal number eight on the afternoon just 22 seconds in.

A Siena  goal at 28:29 made it 8-3 in favor of Marist.

After 15 minutes of scoreless action, the Red Foxes began finding success with their patient, time-consuming possessions that would conclude with goals. Four different players netted scores between 13:05 and 6:58 for Marist: Gionta at 13:05, Romano at 11:32, Sabrina Mattera (Wantagh, N.Y.) at 8:05 and Miller at 6:58.

One goal per team was registered in the final 6:07 of play to make the final score 13-4. Romano was Marist’s final goal scorer.

Their four goal defensive output was the lowest since April 17, 2009 versus Niagara at home.

For the game, Marist outshot Siena 32-24 with a 22-16 advantage in shots on goal. The Red Foxes held favorable margins in draw controls at 12-7, clears at 16-18 to 12-15 and in free-position conversions 2-5 to 1-8. Viscount controlled a game-high six draws. Siena finished with more ground balls at 22-18 and caused turnovers at 6-4.

The Red Foxes will back in action on Wednesday, April 10 at home with a MAAC matchup versus Manhattan. The opening draw is slated for 4 p.m.

Record Book Notes … With her three assists, Tierney Larson tied Lindsey Diener’s 2008 season-high mark of 33 … Her career total of 39 is just one out 10th place all-time and four out of sixth.
