Krohn Leads F&M over Bears

COLLEGEVILLE, Pa. – Caroline Krohn scored five goals to lead No. 7 F&M to a 15-4 victory over Ursinus in Centennial Conference (CC) women's lacrosse action Wednesday afternoon.  The Diplomats have won five straight and improved to 11-2, 6-0 CC while Ursinus fell to 7-6, 3-3 CC.

Cat Serpe and Lauren Ehrhardt joined Erin Dunne in the 100 goal club. Serpe tallied twice and Ehrhardt finished with a goal and three assists for the Diplomats.

Ehrhardt' s goal came 1:37 into the game when she scored off a feed from Mary Mitchell to give F&M an early 1-0 edge. Ursinus answered with two straight to go up 2-1, but their lead was short lived as F&M scored eight unanswered goals in a 15 minute span to go up 9-2 at 9:30 in the first. Krohn had four goals in the run while Mitchell, Dunne and Serpe each tallied a point. Alyssa Thren struck twice for Ursinus to make it 9-4 at 3:15, before Lauren Selawski found Maggie Mae Shields at 2:31 to give the Diplomats a 10-4 halftime lead.

It was all F&M in the second half as the Diplomats accounted for all five points scored in the stanza. Ehrhardt assisted Dunne and Serpe for the first two scores with Shields scoring at 15:58. Casey Madden found twine after a pass from Shields to put F&M up 14-4 at 8:26 and Krohn finished off the scoring with a tally at 5:44.

Mitchell and Shields both came away with three draws and Serpe collected a game-high four groundballs.

Kelsey Hoffman picked up seven saves in the victory and improved to 11-2.

F&M returns to action on Saturday when the Diplomats travel to Haverford for a 12:00 noon contest.
