Alexa David '10 Comes Through with Five-Point Night as Cards Fly Past Mount Holyoke, 6-2
Moving out to a 4-0 lead after 44 minutes of action, the Cardinals withstood a surge by visiting Mount Holyoke Tues., Oct. 2 to come away with a 6-2 triumph. Leading the way was Alexa David '10 (#14, photo by Scott Porter) who pumped in a pair of goals including the one pictured here in the final minute of action. She also assisted on Adrienne Shea's '08 first-half marker that gave Wesleyan a 2-0 lead at intermission. Wesleyan had a 12-1 edge in shots and a 6-1 margin in penalty corners during the opening 35 minutes and extended its superiority into the second half before play evened out during the final 26 minutes. Hailey Sarage '09, Amanda Nickels '08 and Lila Creighton '11 also scored for Wesleyan with the latter picking up her first career tally. The Cardinals continue their six-game home stand by taking on Wellesley Thurs., Oct. 4.
