ROSEMONT, Pa. – The Owls lacrosse team kept rolling on Wednesday, as Bryn Mawr earned a 20-4 win at Rosemont. Isabel Shin racked up two goals and four assists while Meghan O'Shea added another four goals in a rout of the Ravens. Twelve other players scored for the Owls, while three different goaltenders combined to limit Rosemont to four goals in the big win. With the victory, Bryn Mawr moves to 3-0 on the young season, their best start to a campaign since 2004.
O'Shea got Bryn Mawr on the board early, taking a feed from Shin and putting the ball in the back of the cage to put the Owls ahead within the first minute of action. Rebecca Long scored next for Bryn Mawr, then added a second goal on a free position shot after Shin scored a goal herself. Jenna Van Holten and O'Shea each scored next, and then Amirah Hewitt tallied the first goal of her sophomore season to make it a 7-0 lead for the Owls midway through the first half.
Rosemont got a goal against the run of play a few minutes later, and then scored again after a Sierra Hamilton free position goal for the Owls. However, Bryn Mawr immediately got the offense rolling once again in response. Maeve Donnelly scored an unassisted goal just seconds after the ensuing draw, and then O'Shea completed her hat trick just a minute after that. Maya DiFrischia, Sloan Johnson, Shin, and Long each also scored over the ensuing five minutes. Finally, O'Shea racked up her fourth goal of the game just before halftime, making it a 15-2 lead for the Owls at the break.
In the second half, Sophie Sangster scored the first goal of her Bryn Mawr career to get the Owls going once again. Rosemont scored back-to-back goals in response, cutting their deficit to 16-4. However, Bryn Mawr sealed the game by scoring the final four goals of the contest. Nina Houri started that run, and then provided the assist as Colleen McGrath scored the first goal of her senior campaign. First-year Paige Britton scored her first career goal five minutes later, and then Erin Calloway scored her first goal of the season on an assist from DiFrischia.
With the win, the Owls move to 3-0 on the season, and they will be back in action this weekend as they travel to Notre Dame of Maryland for another non-conference contest. Gamtime against the Gators is slated for 1:00 PM on Saturday in Baltimore.
