SALISBURY, Md. – The No. 5 Salisbury University women's lacrosse team rolled to a 15-8 victory over Washington (Md.) College on Saturday afternoon in non-conference action.
Julie Talbert led the Sea Gulls (4-1) with four goals on the day, including the first two goals of the game. After Washington (1-2) got on the board, Salisbury scored three straight from three different players to take a 5-1 lead 10 minutes in.
Taylor Poore, who finished the afternoon with a hat trick, scored on a free position shot to give Salisbury a 9-3 lead heading into halftime.
Talbert opened and closed the scoring in the second half, both on assists from Alexis Strobel, who racked up three assists to go along with one goal.
The two teams traded goals for much of the second half, as Salisbury outscored the Shorewomen 6-5 in the frame. Washington was able to trim the lead to five at 11-6, but goals from Poore and Lindsey Wagner pushed the lead back to seven before Talbert finished off the seven-goal victory.
Salisbury continues its three-game homestand on Tuesday, March 12 against Meredith College. The game is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m.
