Brady Heher scored five goals against Gettysburg.

With 2:18 remaining in the first half Tori Bruno passed the ball to Hollie Larrimore. The sophomore spun around her defender and put the ball inside the near post. The goal gave the Stevenson women’s lacrosse team a 6-5 lead over No. 6 Gettysburg, but eventually the Bullets were able to pull away from the Mustangs for the 17-10 victory.

Gettysburg scored two quick goals immediately off successful draw controls to head into halftime with a 7-6 lead. They carried that momentum right out of the break with four goals in the first four minutes, three in a 23-second span, and continued on to take a 14-6 lead with 22:53 remaining.

Brady Heher took a pass from Bruno a minute and a half later to score and end Gettysburg’s run, but the Bullets knew how to score in a hurry. Just a minute later Amanda Borucki scored again to put Stevenson behind by eight goals.

With 12:39 remaining in the game Olivia Monteiro scored a goal, but the Bullets netted another just 16 ticks of the clock later off the ensuing draw.

Stevenson was able to net two more goals after Emily Tropsa’s goal, but the Bullets were also able to take advantage of an EMO in between.

Heher scored five goals in the game. She netted the first score of the game after working her way inside. That one too saw an immediate response by Gettysburg. She scored another goal off another unassisted run at the cage to put Stevenson ahead 2-1 just six minutes into the game. Her third goal was Stevenson’s third goal with 21:30 remaining and her fourth score was scored midway through the first half. The was the second of back-to-back goals by Stevenson that gave them a 5-3 lead.

Bruno dished out three assists.

Stevenson managed to withstand a 21-8 shot disparity in the first half, largely thanks to nine first half saves by Maggie Lawder. But Gettysburg out-shot the Mustangs 20-8 in the second half, and there was no way for Lawder to keep up. She made only three saves after halftime. the constant pressure finally broke the defense.

Stevenson was unsuccessful on all three of their free position shots and won only 10-of-29 draw controls.

The Mustangs will be on the road for about a month, with road trips to Franklin & Marshall and Washington College, before playing a Spring Break Trip tournament in Puerto Rico in the middle of March.

Editor in Chief
You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
