Curry Pulls Away From Women's Lacrosse

MILTON, Mass. – Senior Kelly Parker (Branford, Conn.) scored five times and assisted on two other goals to help pace the Curry College women's lacrosse team to a 13-8 win over Wentworth Institute of Technology Saturday afternoon at Walter M. Katz Field.

With the win the Colonels improve to 6-7 overall and 2-3 in Commonwealth Coast Conference play while the Leopards fall to 2-9 (0-5).

Wentworth jumped on the board just 39 seconds into the contest on a goal from senior Brandie Holland (Lynn, Mass.). After senior Lauren Carroll (Providence, R.I.) evened the score nearly three minutes later, freshman Julie Dam (Milford, Mass.) converted a free position shot to give the Leopards the lead back.

Two straight Curry goals gave the Colonels a 3-2 lead before sophomore Brooke Paradis (Pelham, N.H.) scored a pair of goals in a span of 7:40 which gave the Black & Gold a 4-3 lead. However, Curry would score the final three goals of the first half and the first three goals of the second half to take a 9-4 lead with 20:17 left.

Freshman Marissa Nelson (Cranston, R.I.) ended the drought with a goal with 19:43 left, and, after the Colonels made it 10-5, Holland scored to pull Wentworth to 10-6. A Parker goal made it 11-6 with 12:21 left, however Paradis scored twice in a span of 2:13, bringing the Leopards within three at 11-8 but would get no closer.

In addition to her seven points, Parker won five draw controls. Senior Malorie Knowlton (Norfolk, Mass.) had a pair of goals, scooped up seven ground balls, and caused eight turnovers.

Paraids had four goals, won three draw controls, and caused a pair of turnovers for Wentworth. Holland had two goals and three draw control wins while sophomore Caitlin McCormick (Hanson, Mass.) had three caused turnovers.
