Clark Notches 100th Career Goal at No. 2 Adelphi Saturday

GARDEN CITY, N.Y. – Phoebe Clark (Concord, N.H.) recorded her 100th career goal Saturday as the Southern New Hampshire University women's lacrosse team dropped a Northeast-10 Conference game to No. 2 Adelphi by a score of 22-5. The Penmen are now 2-8 overall and 1-5 in the league, while the Panthers remain unbeaten at 11-0 overall and 6-0 in conference play.

Clark notched her 100th career score with 18:83 remaining in the second half. The senior joins the 100-goal club along with 29 career assists. She is currently ninth in career-points, as well as sixth in career-goals on the women's lacrosse all-time program history list.

Jenna Crupi (Albany, N.Y.), Alexa Allen (East Longmeadow, Mass.), Emily King (Florence, Mass.) and Ellie Morin (Scarborough, Maine) each recorded a goal apiece for the Penmen as well.

Adelphi took an early lead in the first half scoring two goals 20 seconds apart at the 27:21 mark and then at 27:01. The Penmen answered five minutes later when King scored at the 22:12 mark to make it 2-1. The Panthers went on to score the next eight goals to take a 10-1 lead. Morin broke up the scoring with a tally from Lindsay Bucknam (Bow, N.H.) at the 9:13 mark, and after another Adelphi goal, Allen answered with a goal for SNHU to cut the lead to 12-3. The Panthers closed out the first half with two more scores.

The hosts dominated the second half, outscoring SNHU 9-2, and starting the frame scoring the first four goals. It was not until the 18:38 mark until the Penmen got on the board in the second when Clark scored from Ellen Decker (Foxborough, Mass.). Adelphi scored the next four goals, and with less than two minutes left, Crupi scored the last goal for the Penmen.

Maria Ploof (Middlebury, Vt.) recorded seven saves in 50 minutes, while Taylor Hayes played the majority of time in net for the Panthers notching one save.

The Penmen return to action on Tuesday, April 8 when they host Saint Anselm for a 5:00 p.m. league game on Larkin Field.
