DENVER, Colo.: Regis lacrosse advanced their record to 5-2 overall and 2-0 in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference after a huge 19-6 blowout win over Adams State this afternoon.
RU went up early, outshooting ASU 36-15 on the day and scoring 11 goals to the opposition's one in the first half alone.
The second half proved just as productive for the Rangers offensive and defensive efforts as the home team finished the game 19-6 overall. Regis also forced 19 total turnovers on the Grizzlies helping them keep possession for the majority of the game.
The Rangers scored 11 goals before the Grizzlies managed their first goal with just over three minutes left in the first half. The Rangers first goal came just 33 seconds into the game by the stick of junior Emily Behr.
Within the first 10 minutes, RU had the game in the bag with a 7-0 advantage over the opposition.
In an attempt to rally early in the second half, ASU put the first goal through the Ranger defense five minutes into the half.
RU and ASU would then go back and forth for a few goals, with the Grizzlies scoring the last goal of the game with 12 second left on the clock and the Rangers eventually coming out with the big victory.
Junior goalkeeper Gianna Lombardi was challenged to make three saves on the day while allowing six goals. Adams State was forced to make 13 saves throughout the game while allowing 16 goals on the day.
