Diplomats Slay Dragons
LANCASTER, Pa. – No. 7 Franklin & Marshall ripped off 11 straight goals to walk to a 15-4 win over Oneonta State on Tuesday. Seven different Diplomats got in on the scoring during the non-conference win.
The Red Dragons (0-7) were hanging around 3-2 midway through the first half before the Diplomats (8-1) got moving. Lauren Ehrhardt took an Erin Dunne pass from the back right and buried in the upper-right corner to make it a 4-2 game. The Diplomats piled on ten more to make it 14-2 before Oneonta's Heidi Kissinger finally struck to break a 31:08 Red Dragon drought.
Cat Serpe, Dunne, Ehrhardt, and Lauren Selawski all figured in on F&M's first four goals. They scored early and often. Dunne scored three and assisted on as many more. Selawski and Serpe each registered five points. Serpe scored four and assisted on another, while Selawski had a hat trick and a pair of assists. Ehrhardt scored two and assisted on two more. Paige Burns netted her first career goal in the game as well.
The Diplomats out-shot Oneonta 30-9, largely because the Red Dragons could not clear their own end of the field. F&M's ride broke six Oneonta clears. Libby Nichols caused a pair of turnovers and scooped four ground balls for the Diplomats.
F&M returns to action tomorrow against Bryn Mawr.
