PAXTON, Mass. – A season-high 20 goals highlighted the night as the Emerson Women's Lacrosse Team put down a dominant 20-5 win over the Anna Maria AMCATS Thursday night. With the win the Lions improve to 9-6 overall and 6-2 in conference play while Anna Maria falls to 0-11 on the year and 0-8 in the GNAC.

The Lions struck first with Kanika Misra scoring her 12th of the year before ANM took a brief lead 2-1 with two quick goals. EC buckled down quickly though as they scored 14 more goals with five in the half from Chelsea Phillips, three by Alex Corrado, two by Tracie Lombardo and Tayllar Righini, and one by Sophia Mitropoulos.
