First Half Leads Siena to Rout of Presbyterian

from press release

ARNOLD, Md. - Siena raced out to a 15-2 halftime lead and never looked back en-route to a convincing 19-7 win over Presbyterian in a neutral site affair Saturday afternoon at Anne Arundel Community College in Arnold, Md. Deirdre McQuillan led the way with four goals while Caitlin Mikel and Allie Primo each added hat tricks for the Saints which moved back above .500 for the season.

Siena (5-4), which scored a program-record 21 goals in last year's first-ever meeting with the Blue Hose (3-8), once again scored at will early and often opening a 6-0 lead in the game's first 11 minutes. Five different Siena players scored during the early spurt in another all-around team offensive effort in which eight players scored in total, seven of whom tallied multiple goals.

Mikel added two assists for Siena and scored the game-winner, while McQuillan joined her in scoring five points by adding an assist.

Michelle Andreo, Maggie Deloria, Katie Maguire and Kristin McMillan each added multiple goals for the Saints. McMillan added a game-high six draw controls, while Kristin Concordia posted eight saves in goal to earn the win.

Kristen Stenoien, Katie Prisco and Laura Meade all scored twice for Presbyterian which was out-shot by the Saints, 35-20.

The Saints return to action Wednesday when they host defending MAAC Regular Season Champion and preseason favorite Fairfield at Siena Turf Field. Game time is set for 4 p.m.
