Tigers Crush Whitman in Opener

GEORGETOWN, TEXAS — Neah Bois made 10 saves and Rebecca Reese had two goals, an assist and three ground balls as the Occidental women's lacrosse team crushed Whitman, 16-4 in Texas on Saturday.

"Our defense started our offense today and they played as a unit all over the field," Oxy head coach Stephanie Janice Mark said. "Our attackers were really unselfish and I was pleased with our balanced attack."

The Tigers converted 7 of 10 free position opportunities, making up nearly half of their goals.

First year Alessandra Pellecia had a big first college game, scoring three goals, with four ground balls, two draw controls and four caused turnovers. Ciara Byrne added three goals for Oxy.

Season Impact: Oxy wins its season opener, moving to 1-0.
