Carfello nets two goals in win
Sophomore midfielder Chrissy Carfello had two goals on the afternoon. She is now tied for second on Susquehanna's single season goal list with 48, just three behind the record Krista O'Brien set in 2001.
Sophomore attacks Lauren Campbell and Teresa Kotlicka and freshman attack Kaitlyn McInnis also added one goal apiece for the visiting Crusaders.
Head coach Kate Scattergood said: "It was a great 60-minute game on both sides. We led most of the game and that was important. We stepped up when we needed to."
Odessa Armstrong netted three goals for the Blue Jays and Liz Fretz tallied two goals.
Susquehanna put forth a strong defensive effort, as senior defender Kristin Calabree had six caused turnovers and senior defender Cindy Fox caused five turnovers.
Calabree also had a team-high five ground balls, and junior defender Christine Lizzi had four. Junior attack Melissa Heberlein contributed a team-high four draw controls.
In goal for the Crusaders, junior Abby Goss saved 10 and Elizabethtown's goalkeeper, Kelly O'Conner, had eight stops.
The team did not fare as well Tuesday against Messiah, losing to the Falcons 12-7 on West Field.
Carfello's five goals were not enough to lift the Crusaders to victory as Messiah netted seven-of-eight goals in the second half.
The score was tied 5-5 at the break. The win earned Messiah a spot in the upcoming Middle Atlantic Conference playoffs.
"I think that we could have dug deeper within ourselves and played the full 60 minutes of the game," Goss said. "We needed to play our best and when we let off a little that gave them the chance to take control."
For the Falcons, Kayte Hall and Megan Duke scored three goals each. Joanna Wilkinson contributed one goal and four assists. Messiah's Erin Gallagher finished with a game-high seven ground balls.
Heberlein scored twice for Susquehanna, and Reineke caused seven turnovers on defense. Calabree and senior midfielder Jess Robinson had four ground balls each.
Goss saved six, while Janelle Groff made 16 stops for Messiah.
Reineke's other four-goal performance was on Saturday, as the Crusaders scored nine straight goals to capture a 16-6 victory over FDU-Florham.
The win ended a four-game losing streak for Susquehanna. Heberlein, Carfello and McInnis each finished with three goals. Kotlicka contributed two goals and Robinson netted one.
"It was a beautiful day to play," Goss said. "It was our Senior Day, and we were pumped and psyched to win for the seniors on their last Saturday home game."
Pam Sagehorn tallied three goals for the visiting Devils and Kristen Marlatt added a goal and three assists.
For the Crusaders, Goss finished with six saves. FDU-Florham's Kate Kelliher stopped 17.
The women will travel to Drew on Saturday.
Scattergood said, "Drew has always been our biggest rival. I have no doubt we will come and be ready to play. It should be a good matchup."
