Women’sLacrosse - Pacific 18, Concordia (Wis.) 10:

MEQUON, Wis. – Carmen Taplin (Jr., Hillsboro, Ore.) came up big for Pacific with a seven-goal performance, scoring five of those in a dominant second half as the Boxers finished their Midwestern road trip with an 18-10 victory over Concordia (Wis.) in women’s lacrosse action at Fitting Field.

Taplin scored her five second half goals in the final 14 minutes of the game as the Boxers scored six of the final seven goals of the contest to pull away from a 12-9 lead with 18 minutes left.  With the win, Pacific (7-5) finished their Midwest swing with a 2-1 record and ensured themselves no less than a .500 record for the third straight season.

Brooke Painter (Fr., Roseburg, Ore.) scored three goals in her best game in a Pacific uniform this far, matching the three goals of Melanie Niehus (Fr., Colorado Springs, Colo.).  Kelly Stevens (Jr., Colorado Springs, Colo.) added two goals and four assists, tying her own single game assist record set last season.  Kacey Killingbeck (So., Nampa, Idaho) also scored two goals.

Sammi Reiter led Concordia (1-8), a second year program, with seven goals.  Pacific out-shot the Falcons 38-23 and owned an 18-12 advantage in draw controls.  Concordia took a n 18-16 edge in ground balls.

Concordia opened the game with a 3-1 lead, with Reiter scoring the opening goal and the third goal of the game 10 minutes in.  Pacific took control from there, using three straight strikes from Niehus, two off of Stevens assists, to pace a five-goal run.  Killingbeck closed the run with her unassisted strike at the 12:11 mark, giving Pacific a 6-3 lead.

Concordia closed to within 6-5 on Reiter’s third goal of the game with 9:14 left, but Pacific closed the stanza by scoring three of four goals.  Painter tallied the Boxers’ final scorers, including a free-position attempt with four seconds left that gave the Boxers a 9-6 halftime lead.

Reiter opened the second half with two straight goals to bring the Falcons back to within one, 9-8, two minutes in.  Pacific would allow Concordia just two more goals the rest of the way as the Boxers took control for good.  Kristen Dick (Jr., Auburn, Wash.) opened a three-goal run that gave Pacific a 12-8 lead.  After Alina Zibutis tallied with 18:22 left, the Boxers went on another four-goal, which included three straight by Taplin that effectively put thegame out of reach.

Brittany Hartmann (Jr., Portland, Ore.) earned the win in goal for the Boxers, making nine saves.  Concordia’s Becca David made 11 stops in the loss.

Pacific will play their final two games of the 2012 season next weekend.  The Boxers travel to Puget Sound on Wednesday before closing out at home on Friday against Linfield.
