The Oswego State women's lacrosse team breezed past Elmira College 24-1 in a Sunday afternoon road tilt. Oswego improves to 3-1 on the year while the Soaring Eagles remain winless at 0-3.

In all three of their victories during the 2018 campaign, the Lakers have scored 15 or more goals in all three, including a season-high 24 on Sunday. Most impressively, 24 goals is the most the team has scored since a 28-3 victory against Cazenovia on April 13, 2010.

On Sunday, 10 players recorded a point, with eight having multiple-point performance. The leader of the pack was Teresa Shattuck, falling just short of two career-highs. Shattuck posted 11 points – which is one-shy of her career mark – off two goals and nine assists. The junior's assist total was also just one back of a career-best, set during her sophomore season.

Next were a pair of six-point efforts from senior Gemma O'Kane and junior Toni Laneve. O'Kane reached the figure with five scores and an assist while Laneve tallied each of her points in the goal column.

Sophomore Montana Garrett and freshman Riley Jaquin each had four-point efforts, getting to the total the same way. Each player found the back of the net three times and distributed an assist for their fourth points.

Freshman Kamryn Sherman was the only Laker with three points, scoring once while helping on two other goals for Oswego. Brigid Regin and Riley LaCava rounded out the multiple-point scorers, with the former having a goal and an assist while the latter scored twice.

Sarah Fransden scored her first goal as a Laker while Nicole Polsinelli had one assist to close the Lakers' points on the day.

On the draw, Oswego doubled up Elmira, controlling 18 compared to the Soaring Eagles nine. Shattuck again paced the Lakers with a game-high six draws while Garrett had three and Regin had two. Jaquin, Laneve, LaCava, Skylar Scioscia and Madison Burlingame had one apiece.

Shattuck also had nearly half of the Lakers' seven caused turnovers, forcing three. Zeina Akl turned Elmira over twice while Jaquin and Polsinelli had one apiece.

The defense was solid again for Oswego, as starting goalie Angela Ponto picked up the win with seven saves and just one goal allowed for an .875 save percentage. Elianna Sanchez relieved Ponto for the final 11:15 and made three saves of her own without surrendering a goal. One goal allowed by a Laker squad is the fewest since a 16-1 triumph against Wells College in Florida on March 19, 2007.

Oswego will now take the business week to prepare for sixth-ranked York College (Pa.), who comes to Laker Turf Stadium for a 12 p.m. draw on Saturday.
