The Rangers celebrated two victories for the women’s lacrosse team on April 7, as the team cruised to an easy 19-2 win over Goucher College’s Gophers with Jenna Draney (‘23) scoring her 100th career point that same night. 

Drew was quick to establish dominance on the field, scoring five back-to-back goals within the first few minutes of the game before Goucher was able to make their first goal. The Gophers managed to secure two goals for themselves during the first quarter but could not hold a torch to the Rangers’ scoring prowess; the quarter ended 11-2 in Drew’s favor.

Unfortunately for Goucher, this was the closest the game ever got; the Gophers did not make another goal for the remainder of the game. 

Despite their clear lead, Drew did not hold back from making a strong statement on the field as they continued to widen the gap between the Rangers and the Gophers, with the Goucher’s defense proving to be no match for the Rangers’ top scorers of the game. By halftime, Drew was winning 15-2. 

Leading the way for the Rangers on the field was Draney, who scored four goals over the course of the game. She contributed an impressive three goals in the third quarter alone, with her final goal of the night being the one to earn her the milestone of 100 career points. 

Also helping the Rangers to secure their victory against Goucher was Lizzy Barrett (‘24), who scored four goals as well as causing three turnovers to aid the Rangers, and Emma DiPatri (‘24), who posted three goals and one assist. 

The Rangers’ win over the Gophers put them at a 7-5 overall season record and a 2-1 game record within the Landmark Conference. 

The Rangers faced the University of Scranton this past Wednesday, losing to the Royals 20-6, and will take on rival Catholic University in Washington, DC on Saturday.
