The UMass Lowell women’s lacrosse team (9-3) swept the Boston University Terriers (4-7) 20-7 on Wednesday April 3 at Cushing Field. 

Junior Jade Catlin scored a game-high seven points with four goals and three assists. Meanwhile freshman Jillian Goldie took in five goals, along with sophomores Grace Lydon and Audra Hansen both scoring hat tricks.  

Freshman Chloe Bowers was able to get in two goals and two assists. Seniors Emerson Laundry, Megan Brockbank and sophomore Macy Shultz all were able to tally in a goal.  

Freshman goalie Alexa Kuhn ended the day with a .667 save percentage, making 14 saves in total.  

The River Hawks began the first quarter with a strong defense. Goldie, Hansen, and Bowers would all score within the first ten minutes at 13:02, 12:44, 11:44, and a second by Goldie at 10:07.  

The Terriers were able to bite back once, with a goal by sophomore Elle Stevenson at 10:35. But the River Hawks would fight right back with seven straight goals from Hanson (2), Goldie, Catlin (2), Lydon and Bowers. The River Hawks would go into the second quarter 11-2 following a Terriers goal and Goldie hat trick.  

UMass Lowell would continue to push forward in the second and started strong with Catlin assisting Lydon with finding the back of the net a minute in for Lydon’s second goal of the game. Lydon would soon tally her third with assistance from Brockbank at 8:03. 

 Soon after the Terriers would find their stride and tally three goals in a row. Senior Tobey Tick, junior Hannah Tillier and junior Abby Cotraro would score at 7:08, 5:12 and 2:39 bringing the score up to 13-5.  

UMass Lowell would prove to have the stronger defense when they came back in third and fourth quarters, only allowing two goals for the Terriers from Raegan Bailey and Cotraro.   

The River Hawks strengthened their lead a minute and 22 seconds into the third when Catlin was able to gain her third goal. Although the Terriers fought back with a goal, the River Hawks would go full force back with three goals from Goldie, Shultz and Brockbank.  

During the fourth quarter, Goldie would match her personal record of goals in a game with her fifth. Minutes later Catlin would find a free position and send the ball to the net. Seconds later Laundry would score her first score of the season and bring the River Hawks up to 20 goals, making it their highest scoring game of the season.  

While the team is currently 9-3 overall, they have a 0-2 conference record. Four of their final five games of the season are in conference and they look to change their record. This week they are set to play UMass Amherst Tuesday at 3:30pm at Cushing Field and are hosting a bubble tea giveaway to the first 200 students in attendance, and on Saturday they are hosting their spread respect game versus the Bryant Bulldogs at 12pm.
