SPARKS, Md. — Playing at the site of the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame was unkind to the Barton College women’s lacrosse team Tuesday afternoon.
Stepping out of Conference Carolinas play to face Saint Anselm College of New Hampshire, the Lady Bulldogs conceded six goals before countering near the midway point of the first half, but the Hawks replied with 16 consecutive tallies to pull away for a resounding 22-1 victory at Tierney Field.
Barton dropped to 3-2, while Saint Anselm, affiliated with the Northeast 10 Conference, won its first game and evened its record at 1-1.
Kayli Ashenfelter, a sophomore, had the lone goal for Barton, finishing a man-up advantage off an assist from sophomore Angelina Scarpa.
Annie Richards led the way for Saint Anselm, tallying three goals and five assists. Saint Anselm, which owned a 29-17 advantage in ground balls, finished two goals shy of its program record. The Lady Bulldogs were outshot 35-4, with goalkeeper Katherine Mattena forced into 10 saves.
Barton returns to Conference Carolinas play on Saturday, facing Southern Wesleyan.
