Women's Lacrosse - Pacific 13, North Central (Ill.) 5:

FOREST GROVE – A Pacific career best six-goal performance for Amy Mayhugh (So., Tigard, Ore.) provided most of the offense in the Boxers' third win in as many games Sunday in a 13-5 victory over North Central (Ill.) in women's lacrosse action at Lincoln Park Stadium.

 
Mayhugh scored three goals in each half, including three straight during the middle of the second, to lead a very efficient offensive performance.  Pacific (3-0) scored 13 goals on just 17 shots, 15 of which were on goal.  North Central out-shot the Boxers 21-17 and forced 25 Pacific turnovers, but the Boxers held a 27-22 advantage in ground balls and an 11-9 edge in draw controls.
 
In addition to her six goals, Mayhugh added one assist, two ground balls and three draw controls.  Carmen Taplin (Sr., Hillsboro, Ore.) added three goals while Kaitlyn Harper (Jr., Oregon City, Ore.) scored three to go with two assists, three ground balls, three draw controls and two caused turnovers.  Melanie Niehus (So., Colorado Springs, Colo.) also had a goal along with four ground balls.
 
Danielle Fiala led North Central (0-2) with two goals, four ground balls and four caused turnovers.  Jessica Morgan, Claire Norfleet and Gina Fisher each scored one goal.
 
Pacific opened the contest by scoring the first five goals over a 17-minute span.  Niehus opened scoring off an assist by Kelly Stevens (Sr., Colorado Springs, Colo.) just 38 seconds in and Mayhugh added her first goal before two minutes were gone.  Harper tallied her first at the 25:55 mark and Taplin scored off Kristin Dick's (Sr., Auburn, Wash.) assist just 28 seconds later.  Mayhugh quenched a 12-minute scoring drought with her free position goal with 13:38 left for the Boxers' 5-0 lead.
 
Fiala gave the Cardinals their first goal with 5:09 left and Fisher followed with her lone goal with 4:07 left,  Mayhugh closed out the half with an unassisted strike with 2:15 left for the 6-2 halftime lead.
 
After Fiala scored the first goal of the second half with a minute gone, Pacific put the game out of reach with a six goal run over a 13-minute span.  Harper began the streak with her goal at the 27:21 mark.  Taplin scored the next two and Mayhugh capped it with her three straight goals, the last coming on a free position shot with 15:07 left, that put the Boxers ahead 12-3.
 
Brittany Hartmann (Sr., Portland, Ore.) improved to 3-0 as the Boxers' starting goalkeeper, making 10 saves in the victory.  Stephanie Carter (Fr., Applegate, Ore.) made three saves while playing the final 7:25 in the cage.  Sarah Hon took the loss for North Central, making two saves.
 
Today's game was not only the Boxers' 2013 home opener, but started a string where the Boxers will play three of the five home games on the schedule over a five-day span.  Pacific returns to the field on Tuesday, hosting Smith College of Northampton, Mass., at 5 p.m.  North Central concludes a three-game Northwest road swing on Tuesday at Linfield.
