THE LEAD:
Playing a majority of the contest in a driving rain, visiting Elms College raced out to a commanding 13-2 halftime lead and never looked back as the Blazers secured an 18-4 win over Dean College in New England Collegiate Conference (NECC) women's lacrosse action on Wednesday afternoon.

Elms had a trio of stellar performances headlined by a five-goal, two-assist showing from Vanessa Vuro.

HOW IT HAPPENED:
Elms wasted little time getting on the board as Haley Roberts scored a just over a minute into the contest, sparking an eight goal outburst that included three goals from Haley Richard and two apiece from Vurno and Victoria-Lynn Smith.

The Bulldogs responded when Frantzleine Nherisson (Lowell, Mass.) went coast-to-coast for her fifth score of the year and that was followed up by a free position tally from Lauryn Wilks (Hartford, Conn.).

Smith continued her outstanding effort with two more goals before the half ended as the Blazers went into intermission ahead 13-2.

Vurno, Richard and Madison Crawford all found the back of the net in the first ten minutes of the half before back-to-back free position scores from Wilks and Makayla Fisher (Irvington, N.J.) ended the scoring for Dean on the afternoon.

INSIDE THE NUMBERS:
In addition to Vurno, Richard and Smith each had four goals and an assist, while five others had a single goal for Elms.

Jamaya Cleveland (Greensboro, Ga.) made seven saves between the pipes for the Bulldogs.

UP NEXT:
The Bulldogs will return to action on Saturday when they visit Newbury for a 1:00 p.m.
