German Tallies Seven Points as Rollins Earns Win over Mount Olive

The win keeps the Tars, who entered into the game at No. 8 on the IWLCA DII Poll and No. 7 on the NIKE/US Lacrosse DII Top 20, perfect on the season with a record of 6-0.  The Trojans, who entered into the contest ranked No. 24 on the IWLCA DII Poll, earn their second loss of the season and drop to 6-2 overall.

Mount Olive, who checked in at No. 24 on the Week 2 IWLCA Division II Poll but dropped out of the standings this week, saw a team best tow goals from Jackie Kaderabek.  Kelly Young, Meaghan Michaud, Tiffany Lee, and Skylar Grady all scored one goal apiece.  Both Young and Kiara Burke earned one assist each on the afternoon.  Sadie Michael earned a team best three ground balls, while Burke led the team in draw controls with four.  Karlie Abbott was credited with a team high two caused turnovers.  In goal, Siena Miller played a full game, earning 12 saves while allowing 14 goals.

How it Happened:
The Tars jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first nine seven minutes, but a goal by the Trojans at the 22:04 mark cut the Tars' lead in half, 2-1. Rollins answered back with three of their own, extending their advantage to 5-1 with 15:49 on the clock, but a goal by UMO with 13:35 on the clock in the first half halted the Tars' scoring streak, setting the score at 5-2.  The Tars fired off three more, pulling ahead by a score of 8-2 with 5:42 to go before the break, but a goal by the Trojans just 27 seconds later wrapped up the first half scoring, giving the Tars an 8-3 lead at halftime.  Both teams traded blows twice to open the second half, but a free position goal by Ashton at the 13:31 mark ignited a four goal run that gave the Tars a 14-5 lead with 4:09 to play.  A late goal by the Trojans with 39 seconds left closed out the game with Rollins earning the 14-6 regional victory.
