Women's Lacrosse - Puget Sound 12, Pacific 10:

TACOMA, Wash. - Another big scoring performance by Carmen Taplin (Jr., Hillsboro, Ore.) was not enough to off-set a torrid first half scoring performance by Puget Sound Tuesday as the Loggers shocked the Boxers 12-10 in women's lacrosse action at Baker Stadium.

Taplin scored five goals to lead all scorers, posting her second straight game with three or more scores. The individual performance was not enough, though, to hold off a Puget Sound attack that scored five of the first six goals of the contest.  The Boxers rallied to tie the game at 10-10 with 15 minutes left thanks to a five-goal run, but the Loggers scored the final two goals of the contest to secure the win.

Kacey Killingbeck (So., Nampa, Idaho) added two goals for Pacific (7-6) while Amy Mayhugh (Fr., Tigard, Ore.), Brooke Painter (Fr., Roseburg, Ore.) and Jessica Hattig (Fr., Portland, Ore.) each tallied one goal.  Pacific led the game in most major statistical categories except the score, outshooting the Loggers 31-28 and owning a 22-20 advantage in ground balls and a 13-11 edge in draw controls.

Julia Schulman led Puget Sound (2-11) with four goals.  Caroline Cook added three goals while Grace Reid and Rachael Silva scored two goals each.

After the two traded goals to start the game, Puget Sound built a 5-1 lead thanks a string of four unanswered goals.  Caroline Cook scored two of the goals, including the first of the run at the 25:24 mark, while Schulman closed up the run with her unassisted strike with 19 minutes left.

Killingbeck broke the string with her goal midway through the period, but the Loggers went back to work with another three-goal run.  Cook closed it our when she scored unassisted with 4:05 left to give the Loggers an 8-2 lead.  Killingbeck and Painter scored to close the period, allowing the Boxers to halve the lead at half, 8-4.

Puget Sound scored two of the second half's first three goals, with Schulman giving the Loggers a 10-5 lead with her score 10 minutes into the stanza.  The Boxers roared back, though, with a five-goal run of their own.  Taplin scored four of the goals to make it a near single-handed charge, and her strike off of Mayhugh's assist with 15:24 left tied it at 10-10.

The Loggers responded back immediately, taking the ensuing draw down field.  Silva netted the game-winner off a free-position shot with 15:01 to go.  Both defenses locked down from there, with the only other goal coming off a free-position opportunity from Schulman at the 10:53 mark.

Brittany Hartmann (Jr., Portland, Ore.) finished with 10 saves in the loss as she made her fourth consecutive start in goal.  Linnea Bostrom made 16 saves to earn the win for the Loggers.

Pacific will wrap up the 2012 season at home, hosting Linfield on Friday night at 6 p.m.  The Boxers' four seniors will be honored prior to the game.  In addition, Pacific will recognize it's recent All-Northwest Conference Scholar-Athletes and CoSIDA Academic All-District recipients at halftime as part of activities for Division III Week.
