The Roadrunners women's lacrosse team earned a win in their opening game of the season as freshmen Charlotte Councell, Katie Duca and Monica Torres scored the first goals of their Ramapo careers.
Ramapo earned an 11-5 victory over The College of Old Westbury, led by sophomore Lindsay Hughes, who had seven goals and two assists in the game. Her final goal of the game with just 15 seconds left was also her 100th-career goal as a Roadrunner.
Hughes became the first player in Ramapo women's lacrosse history to reach 100 career goals. If she continues to produce at a similar pace, it is likely that she will score well over 300 goals in a four-year career.
Junior goalkeeper Reagan Vier made 13 saves in the game for Ramapo and kept her team ahead when the game was on the line. Despite an early 4-0 lead, Old Westbury came within one goal during the first half.
But the Roadrunners scored three goals in the final four minutes of the first half, taking a commanding 7-3 lead into the second. Ramapo scored four more goals in the second half en route to a landslide 11-5 win.
The Roadrunners will look to improve to a 2-0 overall record this season when they travel to Yonkers, N.Y. to play the College of Mount Saint Vincent on Saturday.
Mount Saint Vincent lost its first game of the season 19-1 to the Stevens Institute of Technology last Monday.
The Roadrunners will spend the rest of March playing non-conference teams before hosting The College of New Jersey on April 1 in their first New Jersey Athletic Conference matchup of the season.
