Cortland, NY… The College of New Jersey women’s lacrosse team won an early-season showdown of nationally-ranked opponents as the Lions handled SUNY Cortland 16-4 on Saturday at SUNY Cortland’s Stadium Complex.

The win kept the fifth-ranked Lions perfect on the young season, while the 15th-ranked Red Dragons slipped to 3-3. The win also snapped Cortland’s 30-game home winning streak with TCNJ also the last time to beat the Red Dragons on their home field with an 11-5 win on during the 2004 season.

Cortland opened the scoring 46 seconds into the game, but the Lions stormed back with the next four with senior Karen Doane (Bridgewater, NJ/Bridgewater-Raritan) getting the first two that put TCNJ in the lead for good.

The Lions would build the lead to 8-3 in the late stages of the half and added to that lead with goals from sophomore Angela Wilmer (Cherry Hill, NJ/Cherry Hill West) and freshman Alison Jaeger (Hampton, NJ/North Hunterdon). TCNJ carried a 10-3 lead into the break.

The teams traded goals in the opening two minutes of the second with Wilmer scoring for TCNJ. Cortland’s goal turned out to be its final score of the game as the Lions recorded the final five of the contest.

Doane and Jaeger each netted four goals for the Lions with Wilmer and junior Kelly Mitchell (Mt. Laurel, NJ/Lenape) both scoring twice.

Earning the win in goal for the Lions was Caitlin Gregory (Winslow, NJ/Eastern) as the senior finished with six saves.

The Lions return to Ewing for their home opener on Tuesday, March 25 hosting Eastern University in a 7 p.m. start at Lions’ Stadium.
