WLax Sit Fresno St.'s Bulldogs Down


The Lady Dolphins played host to Fresno State University (2-4) on Tuesday, taking on the Bulldogs in a memorable scuffle.

The women’s lacrosse team beat Fresno 21-2 at D.B. Milne Field on March 27. Thirteen different players scored throughout the game.

Junior Rachel Hannon set a school record as she earned 10 draw controls. She broke the old mark of 6 which was held previously by Abby Warnken, Sarah Michel and Hannon herself. JU outshot Fresno 46-10.

Sophomore Morgan Derner led the game with 5 goals. She has now scored 19 goals in the last four games.

Sophomores Derner and Brittney Orashen, who was making her first collegiate start, set the pace in the first two and a half minutes when first Derner scored on an assist by Ali Hoffman, and Orashen followed with another on an assist by Hoffman. Orashen wound up with 4 assists and a goal for the game.

The first 2 goals launched the Phins to an 11-0 halftime lead and an 18-0 lead before the Bulldogs got on the board.

Two of the JU goalkeepers Karli Tobin and Asia Moore split time and each recorded 6 saves.

JU offense hit on all cylinders but also the defense put on a vice-grip to the Bulldogs, holding them to only 4 shots in the first half and 6 in the second. Altogether Fresno committed 22 errors.

The Dolphins have two away games next week and will host Howard University April 20.
