Red Hawks pull away from Mustangs in 2nd half

Stevenson was stuffed by Montclair State’s defense for an extended period of time in the second half while Montclair State went on a key run to pull away for a win.

Montclair State scored seven-straight goals in an overpowering second half to earn an 11-7 victory over the Stevenson Mustangs women’s lacrosse team.

Olivie Monteiro scored her first of a team-best three goals with just eight seconds remaining in the first half to put the Mustangs ahead 4-3 at halftime. Then just 39 seconds out of the break Mallory Davila doubled the Stevenson lead with a free position goal.

But Montclair State would shut the Mustangs out for 22 minutes while they poured in seven-straight goals to push ahead 10-5.

The Red Hawks scored quickly off a draw control victory following Davila’s goal. Monteiro won the next three draw controls for Stevenson, but turnovers continually cost the Mustangs possessions and opportunities.

Stevenson turned the ball over 13 times in the second half alone, and three failed clears also made things troubling for them.

Monteiro finally snapped the Mustangs scoring drought with an unassisted goal with 7:38 remaining in the game. However, they couldn’t build any momentum off of that as Lindsay Lare scored her fourth goal of the game on a free position shot just 16 seconds later.

Monteiro did net one more goal for Stevenson, but it came with 2:27 left. There just wasn’t enough time for there to be any hope for a comeback.

Stevenson dropped to 1-3 on the year but will remain at home against Chestertown, Maryland’s Washington College on Wednesday at 7 pm.

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.
