Mustangs run away for victory over Widener

Olivia Monteiro led Stevenson with five points on four goals and one assist.

From the opening seconds to the final whistle, the Stevenson Mustangs women’s lacrosse team earned a runaway victory over the visiting Widener Pride on Saturday afternoon. Stevenson led 10-6 at halftime but blew them away in the second half to earn an 18-8 victory.

Seniors Olivia Monteiro and Tori Bruno each scored four goals while Carly Bowes had a hat trick to lead the Mustangs to the victory.

Those three scored in order to give the Mustangs a 3-0 lead to open the game. Monteiro scored just 21 seconds into the game before Bruno and Bowes scored 76 seconds apart from each other.

Widener got on the board eight minutes into the game when Melanie Bert scored on a feed from Jamie Bert, but Stevenson remarkably netted two player-down goals just 25 seconds apart from each other to get ahead 5-1 with just 10 minutes having run off the clock.

Hana Tankersley got the Mustangs down a player after she was carded with 21:08 left on the clock in the first half. But Stevenson got possession, got drew a foul of their down and Mackenzie Reese scored a free position goal before Monteiro netted another quick goal off a successful draw control just 25 seconds later.

Widener was able to get a goal with the player advantage as Jamie Parent scored a free position goal just a few seconds before the penalty ran out, but the Pride couldn’t get on a run. Sarah Roerty and Mallory Davila added to the Stevenson lead with scores just 29 seconds apart.

Widener responded with a pair of goals of their own, but those two scores were the only two that could string together. The rest of their goals came just one at a time. Stevenson never let them cut into their lead.

Stevenson led 10-6 at halftime but then scored the first four goals of the second half to balloon their lead out to eight scores with 14:13 left.

Kaylee Horchak scored for the Pride with 10:30 left in the game, but again, there was no Widener run. Instead, Stevenson scored another four straight to put things completely away. Widener scored one final goal with 19 seconds left in the game.

Stevenson outshot the Pride 36-24 and beat them on draws 18-9 and ground balls 17-12. Roerty led Stevenson with four ground balls and seven draw control victories. Goalkeeper Mack Ferguson has 10 saves in the game.

Stevenson will play their final home game of the year on Thursday against Alvernia at 7 pm before finishing their regular season with three straight road games.

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.
