February 25, 2009 | Glenn Clark

OWINGS MILLS, Md. – Junior Lauren Zegowitz (Gaithersburg/Damascus) and
sophomore Lisa Baker (Westminster/Westminster) combined for 10 goals
and 13 points as the Stevenson University women’s lacrosse team won
its sixth-straight at home, 17-9 over York (Pa.) in a CAC contest
Wednesday at Caves Athletics Complex.

The Mustangs (2-0, 2-0 CAC) had twice as many shots as the Spartans
while scoring on six of their 10 free position attempts.

Six different players combined to score Stevenson’s nine first half
goals, led by three from Zegowitz and two from Baker. Freshman Kristin
Gancarz (Crownsville/Old Mill) and senior Mandi Carr (Crownsville/Old
Mill) also added their first goals of the year in the opening half as
the Mustangs managed a slim 9-5 lead at halftime.

Baker, who finished the game with a career-high six goals and seven
points, had a hand in Stevenson’s first three goals of the second half
as the Mustangs scored the first five of the half in pushing its lead
to nine, 14-5 with 12:53 remaining.

Baker opened the half with her third goal at 24:17 before assisting
sophomore Megan Weiss (Odenton/Seton) at 17:53 and netting her fourth
with 15:07 left on a free position.

Zegowitz followed with her fourth goal on a free position at 13:42
before Weiss scored her third goal with 12:53 to play.

York (0-2, 0-1 CAC) tried to make things interesting by scoring three
of the game’s next four goals, including two by Kelly Vrana, but Baker
added two more goals in the final 5:10 to end any threat of a Spartan
comeback.

Zegowitz finished with four goals and two assists for a total of six
points while Weiss added three goals and Carr two.

In goal, freshman Jenny Schroeder (Severna Park/Seton Keough) made six
saves, including four in the second half, in picking up her second
victory in as many starts.

2008 All-Metro Region and All-CAC First Team selection Anne Feustle
made 10 saves for York who had 18 turnovers and was just 1-for-6 on
free position attempts.

Stevenson will face its first big test of the season on Sunday when it
travels to No. 3-ranked Salisbury. In two games last season, the Sea
Gulls outscored the Mustangs, 44-9. Game time is at 1:00 p.m.
