BRYN ATHYN, Pa. -- Freshman attack Bri Lennox scored a program-record seven goals and finished with 10 points, tying the program record, to propel the Bryn Athyn College women's lacrosse team to a 15-5 non-conference home victory over Westminster (Pa.) College Saturday afternoon on General Ronald K. Nelson Field.
In her second career game, Lennox became the second Bryn Athyn (2-0) player to reach double digits in points. Hannah Bracey was the first Lion to put up 10 points in a match when she had four goals and six assists in a 15-14 win over Lancaster Bible on April 2, 2017.
Lennox had racked up 12 draw controls and three ground balls.
Laura Clymer also had a record day for the Lions as she recorded six points with three goals and three assists. Sabrina Colbridge had one goal, five assists, three caused turnovers and two ground balls.
Sarah Reed led the defensive effort as she had seven caused turnovers and six ground balls. Anja Weisser was strong in the Lion net with three saves.
Bryn Athyn got off to a sluggish start as Westminster (0-2) scored the first two goals of the afternoon in the opener 6:13.
Lennox got the Lions momentum going as she won the draw control after the Titans' second goal, sprinted right down the field, and scored the first goal of the afternoon just 15 seconds after the team fell behind 2-0.
The Lennox goal started a run of seven straight Bryn Athyn goals, including three from Lennox and two from Hyatt, to give the Lions a 7-2 advantage with 2:43 left in the half. After Westminster stopped the run with a free-position goal, Colbridge and Glass scored in the final 1:19 of the half to increase the margin to 9-2 at the break.
With the score sitting at 9-4, Lennox went on a tear to seal the victory as she scored four straight points to widen the gap to 13-4. Clymer scored the Lions' final two goals.
Emily D'Amico had three of the Titans' five goals, while Bria Braddock and Michaela Hays had the others. Matalyn Holland recorded 12 saves.
Bryn Athyn hits the road for the first time this season with a trip to Bryn Mawr for a non-conference clash on Wednesday, March 21 at 4 p.m.
