Worcester State Edges Women's Lax, 17-16

NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA – Angela Grassetti (Feeding Hills, MA/Agawam) scored with one second remaining on the clock to lift visiting Worcester State University over the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, 17-16, in a back-and-forth non-conference women's lacrosse game at Cressy Field Tuesday afternoon.

Grassetti's goal spoiled an incredible outing by UMass Dartmouth senior goalkeeper Angelina Donovan (Medford, MA/Medford), who stopped 21 of the 38 shots she faced. Neither team had larger than a four-goal lead in the highly entertaining contest.

The Lancers (4-0) were paced by Kalia Chase's (Northbridge, MA/Northbridge) five goals. Teammate Molly Kilday (Westfield, MA/Westfield Academy) added three goals, while three other players added a pair of goals each for WSU.

Senior attacker Brittney Enos (East Falmouth, MA/Falmouth) led the Corsairs (2-3) with a game-high six goals. Freshman attacker Colleen Kane (Arlington, MA/Arlington) continued the hot start to her first collegiate campaign with six points (four goals, two assists), while senior midfielder Denise Gates (Feeding Hills, MA/Agawam HS) dished out a game-high five assists.

Worcester State held a 40-31 advantage in ground balls in outshooting UMD 45-25 (38-24 on goal). Alex Chisholm (Brookfield, MA/Brattleboro [VT]) turned aside eight shots in picking up the win for the Lancers.

WSU was dominant in draw controls (23-13) and was plus-two in turnover margin.

The Corsairs are right back at home on Thursday when they host Wheelock in a non-conference tilt at Cressy Field. The Lancers welcome Adrian on Saturday.
