Warmer climate, same result.

In Hilton Head, S.C., on its spring break trip, the Muhlenberg women’s lacrosse team defeated Bridgewater, 14-5, opening up its season with a 2-0 record for the second straight year.

“Everyone is so happy to be on this trip,” said senior Katie Reimann, who finished the game with two goals and one assist. “We’re all coming out extra hard to make our spring break worth it.”

scored the team’s first goal 29 seconds into the first half. That was the first of Scarrone’s three goals on the game, good for the first scores and the first hat trick of her career. Sophomore Ruth Morrongiello also recorded a hat trick for the second game in a row.

“I didn’t come out looking to score, I was just trying to play with the team,” Scarrone said. “Everyone was spaced out really well on the field, so it just worked out that I was able to score those goals.”

The Mules scored two more goals over the next four minutes before allowing Bridgewater (1-1) its first of the game in the sixth minute. Muhlenberg, backed by sophomore Caroline Shadood in goal, then held the Eagles to just two more goals before the break and went into halftime up by six, 9-3. Shadood finished her 2007 debut with six saves.

Rachel [Danziger] did really well in her first game in goal last week, but it was still comforting to have Caroline back,” Scarrone said. “She’s been here for a year already, so she knows what to expect. And she’s good!”

Shadood had some help on the defensive end, as her teammates kept their foul total to a minimum so as not to give up easy points.

“We’ve been working on keeping our fouls low,” said senior defender Kelli Sakonchick. “We did a better job of playing solid defense without fouling, and it worked out for us.”

In the second half, the Mules tacked on five more goals, including the team’s last two, which were scored by sophomore Sara Hiller and assisted by junior Marissa Capuano. Capuano had three assists this game and four on the season, only three shy of her season total from last year.

Freshman Alyssa Bascelli also contributed to the Mules’ offense, scoring four points on two goals and two assists.

Muhlenberg will play one more game in Hilton Head, and the team is confident that it can come back to Allentown with a perfect record.

“Any game can be anyone’s win,” Reimann said, “but we’re confident that we can come out of this trip 3-0. We have a great attitude, and we can’t wait for our next game.”
