Crusaders Ride Felsoci, Defense to 18-7 Win at Barton

WILSON, N.C. – Marin Felsoci scored early and often to lead the Belmont Abbey women's lacrosse team to an 18-7 victory this afternoon at Barton College.  With the victory, Belmont Abbey now stands at 9-7 on the year, and 7-2 in Conference Carolinas play.  They also clinched a home game in the first round of the Conference Carolinas Tournament on April 22.  Barton is now 9-6, with a 6-4 conference record.

How it Happened

  • It did not Felsoci long to put the Crusaders on the board first.  She scored again just three minutes later for an early 2-1 Abbey lead
  • Later in the half, Belmont Abbey scored four goals in a five-minute span, two by Felsoci and two by Kylie Eastman, putting the Crusaders in front 6-2

  • It only took Allison Cline a minute and a half into the second period to find the back of the net for the Crusaders
  • Barton scored a goal at the 27:03 mark, but then the Crusader defense heated up, giving up just one shot over a 16-minute span
  • Eastman tallied a man-down goal with 13:43 to play.  She also scored a man-up goal at the 1:18 mark, before Eva Stahlschmidt capped off the scoring with two seconds to play

  • Felsoci scored four goals and won a game-high seven draw controls
  • Eastman and Perrone each caused three Barton turnovers
