Bryant Women Win Second Straight

from press release

LORETTO, Pa. -- Delia Glover (Marston Mills, MA) scored five goals and Allison Faiola (Billerica, MA) added four tallies and seven assists as the Bryant University women's lacrosse team picked up its second consecutive win Saturday defeating Saint Francis (PA) 20-10 in non-conference action.

Bryant (2-4), coming off its first victory of the season Thursday, defeating Howard 15-4, got another strong effort from its offensive attack unit Saturday against the Red Flash.  Glover, who scored four goals in the opener against Louisville, had her best outing of the season with five goals plus one assist for six points.

Junior Nikole Such (Wrightstown, NJ) scored her first career goal just over a minute into the contest to put the Bulldogs up quickly.  Bryant would score the game's first five goals before Saint Francis (PA) got on the board at 22:22.

Glover would score four first-half goals - including one with just 19 seconds left before the half as the Bulldogs led 16-5 at the break.

Faiola, who had five goals in Thursday's win over Howard, had seven assists to go with her four goals on the afternoon.  All seven assists came in the first half. Freshman standout Mary Green (Merrick, NY) also had four goals on the afternoon to give her nine for the season.

Bryant led 19-5 with 24 minutes remaining before Saint Francis (0-2) would score five-straight to pull within 19-10 with just under seven minutes remaining.  But sophomore Meaghan Delaney (Centerville, MA) scored her with 2:46 left to close the door.  It was Delaney's first of the season and first for her career.

Jessica Bolton (Belgrade Lakes, ME) made three saves to earn the win while freshman Lauren Filippone (West Babylon, NY) came on in place of Bolton to start the second half and finished 10 saves.

Bryant will travel to Monmouth Friday and Sacred Heart next Sunday.
