NEWTON, Mass.—Ashley Slattery and Britney Wuorio combined for 10 goals to lead the Lasell College women's lacrosse team to a 17-5 win against the Cadets of Norwich University in Great Northeast Athletic Conference action from Grellier Field.
With the loss, the Cadets fall to 0-3 overall and 0-2 in GNAC play, while the win boosts the Lasers to 6-2 overall and 3-0 in league action.
The Cadets were led offensively by sophomore midfielder Gina Conroy (Amherst, N.H.) with a team-high three goals. Freshman Chander Camlin (Stamford, Conn.) and junior Grace Fitzpatrick (Falmouth, Maine) both added a goal apiece, while Fitzpatrick led the team in ground balls and draw controls with five apiece.

The two teams traded goals until Lasell took a two-goal lead on back-to-back goals at the 12:20 and 11:25 marks. Norwich would cut the lead to one just under two minutes later, but Lasell scored three-straight goals to conclude the half with an 8-4 advantage.
Lasell opened the second half with another three-goal run, taking the 11-4 lead before Norwich's Conroy stopped the run with a free position goal with 21:45 left to play. The goal would mark the final score for the Cadets and Lasell scored six more times to claim the 17-7 victory.
