The Sun Devils Women’s Lacrosse (2-1) team defeated the Stetson Hatters (0-3) 11-3 at Sun Devil Soccer/Lacrosse Stadium, giving them their second win of the year.

“Whenever you face the same opponent from the previous year, you kind of look past them unintentionally and that’s something we didn’t want to happen with our young group,” head coach Courtney Martinez Connor said. “So, it’s playing in the moment, every play, every ground ball, and not losing sight of that. It was super important for us to focus on in this game, to make sure that we are doing the little things and putting in a full effort,”

After 15 minutes of play, sophomore attacker Taylor Carson scored her first goal of the day, with an assist from Emily Glagolev. Arizona State went on to score five more goals in the first half making it 6-0 going into halftime.

Carson had two goals in the first half along with sophomore midfielder Maddy Hunter and redshirt junior attacker Kerri Clayton, who each had a pair of goals. Glagolev assisted two goals in the first half and, freshman midfielder Paige Mcglothlin and junior attacker Carley Adams both had one each.

“Today was a testament of playing the full 60, we had a slow start Friday and today we completely turned that around and really hustled for every ground ball and goals,” said Hunter on the team’s effort.

In the first half, Stetson won five of the seven draws and both teams had nine fouls.

Stetson started the second half with a goal by sophomore midfielder Taylor Zuberer, but the Sun Devils got two back within 2 minutes, both by sophomore attacker Kate Dougherty. Hunter went on to score her third of the day with 21 minutes left of play in the game.

Glagolev netted one herself before Clayton got her hat trick two minutes later off an assist from junior midfielder Mia Harp. ASU scored 11 goals on 23 shots on target and only allowing Stetson nine shots on target. The Hatters would score two goals in the last seven minutes of play, ending the game 11-3.

“This year we are a more balanced team, we know how to keep the intensity going. We lacked in a couple of places, but we were able to pick it up and keep going,” Clayton added on the difference of play in the Sun Devils second season.

The Sun Devils play again at home on Tuesday, March 5th against Vanderbilt at 4 P.M. MST and will finish their first homestand on Friday, March 8th in their first Pac-12 game of the season against USC at 5 P.M. MST.
