The KU women’s lacrosse team defeated Bloomsburg on April 20 by a score of 14-6 in a conference matchup behind an efficient offense on Keystone Field.

KU’s win over the Huskies was the first time they beat the team since the 2008 reestablishment of the team.

Many records were broken with this win.

The Golden bears (7-9, 3-8 PSAC) got out to a 6-3 lead after the first half and continued to lead the entire game.

The team is now in position for its best PSAC finish since their reinstatement.

Sophomore Sarah Gabriele had four goals and two assists. She now has a total of 46 goals this season with over 100 career points.

Freshmen Lauren Schmidt and Makayla Bowman scored twice for the Golden Bears, and freshman Jess Christ added a goal of her own against the Huskies.

Lauren Huggins, who led KU with five goals and one assist, led KU’s offensive performance.

Huggins has a career-high of 37 goals this season.

On the defensive side, the Golden Bears greatly halted Bloomsburg’s ability to get clean

looks and shots at goal.

Abby Cox, who was in the cage, assisted the win with a career-high of 14 saves.

The Huskies’ Brigid Kyne and Hannah Jaskuta, who both scored twice each, led Bloomsburg in scoring.
