UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. - A superb defensive effort, highlighted by the brilliant play of junior goalkeeper Dana Cahill (Towson, Md.), propelled the Penn State women's lacrosse team to a resounding 11-3 victory over visiting Delaware (2-4) at Bigler Field on Saturday afternoon.

Cahill recorded 12 saves, just one shy of her career high, against 19 Delaware shots to headline a Penn State (2-4) defense that allowed just one second half goal and held the Blue Hens scoreless for the game's final 22-plus minutes.

Offensively, senior midfielder Jackie Eastman (Springfield, Pa.) led the Lions with four points (2 goals, 2 assists) while senior attacker Mary Dean (Wyncote, Pa.) notched three (2 goals, 1 assists). Seniors Maggie Dunbar (Cockeysville, Md.) and Jen Steadman (Sykesville, Md.) each found net twice, giving PSU four two-goal scorers for the game.
