PLYMOUTH, N.H. – Colby College freshman Angela Pappas (Gwynedd Valley, PA) scored six goals Saturday, spoiling the last regular season home game for Plymouth State College as the White Mules took a 20-5 women’s lacrosse decision from PSC at Arold Field.
Colby held a 3-2 lead nine minutes into the game, but scored seven unanswered goals to take a 10-2 advantage into halftime. The White Mules extended their lead to 17-2 before PSC got on the board again with nine minutes left to play.
With the win, Colby gets back on the winning track and improves to 7-5, while PSC drops to 9-4.
Pappas’ six markers increases her team lead to 26 goals this season. She got offensive assistance from five teammates who scored two goals apiece — Allison Birdsong (Greenwich, CT), Katie Lee (West Newton, MA), Marcia Ingraham (Georgetown, MA), Abby Healy (Freeport, ME), and Emily Etchells (Middlebury, VT).
