The Kean University Women's Lacrosse team (2-1) scored five straight goals to break a threethree tie and never looked back as they defeated the winless Manhattanville College (0-3), 17-12, on March 9.
Lyndsey Cannon, Julie Knodt and Marisa DeAngelis each scored four goals apiece in the win for Kean. Junior Maggie Howley led the Manhattanville College Valiants with four goals of her own.

After the Valiants tied it at three-all, the Cougars scored five straight as junior Stephanie Tocko scored the first and Knodt finished the run to put Kean ahead, 8-3. The streak ended when Valiant player, Melissa Goncalves, scored a goal just before the half ended. Going into halftime the Cougars had a 8-4 lead.
In the second half with the Cougars ahead, 15-8, the Valiants went on to score four of the game's next five goals, but proved too little too late as Kean held on for the win.
