Women's Lacrosse - Pacific 21, Smith 11:

FOREST GROVE – Kaitlyn Harper (Jr., Oregon City, Ore.) scored five goals and had two assists to lead another balanced and efficient scoring attack Tuesday night as Pacific posted a 21-11 rout of Smith in women's lacrosse action at Lincoln Park Stadium.
 
Harper scored three of her goals in the second half, but had her final two goals during an eight-goal over a 13-minute stretch of the second half that effective shut the door on the Pioneers.  Carmen Taplin (Sr., Hillsboro, Ore.) added four goals while Amy Mayhugh (So., Tigard, Ore.), Melanie Niehus (So., Colorado Springs, Colo.) and Adrienne Wilburn (Sr., Boise, Idaho) scored three goals apiece.
 
Pacific's scoring attack proved efficient once again, with the Boxers scoring their 21 goals on 28 shot attempts.  Pacific (4-0) outshot the Pioneers 28-22 and held a 24-21 advantage on ground balls and a 19-15 edge in draw controls.  The Boxers were also a perfect 4 for 4 in free-position attempts.
 
Jessica Lillquist led Smith (1-4) with four goals.  Jenny Estes scored three goals while Kate Detrick added two goals and an assist.
 
Pacific shocked Smith coming out of the gate, scoring four goals over the first four minutes of the opening half.  Taplin tallied two of the goals and Harper closed it with her first goal at the 25:58 mark.  After a timeout, Smith regained its composure and keep the game close.  Lillquist scored all four of her goals in the first half, two of which came in a three-goal streak that ended the half.  Detrick closed the stanza with an unassisted goal with 10 seconds left to bring the Pioneers within 9-7 at the break.
 
After trading goals in the first three minutes of the second half, Kara Smouse (Fr., Carbondale, Colo.) used her goal off of Mayhugh's assist with 26:54 left started the winning eight-goal run.  Harper and Niehus each tallied twice during the streak, with Niehus closing the run with her unassisted goal with 14:09 left to give the Boxers a commanding 18-8 lead.
 
Smith scored back-to-back free position goals to close the run, but Pacific came eight back to score three goals in the game's final five minutes.
 
Brittany Hartmann (Sr., Portland, Ore.) improved to 4-0 in goal, making seven saves in the victory.  Savannah Larson made just one save in the loss, dropping to 1-4 on the year.
 
Pacific will close out a three-game home stand with another East Coast opponent, host Allegheny at 5 p.m.  Smith will conclude their three-game Northwest road trip on Friday at Puget Sound.
