WINCHESTER, Va. – The Shenandoah University women's lacrosse team ran its winning streak to three games Saturday with a 17-14 non-league victory over the University of Scranton.

Shenandoah (4-2) took a lead it would not relinquish on a 9-3 run midway through the first half.

After Scranton (2-3) took its only lead, 2-1, on a Morgan Windisch goal at 25:22, the Hornets reeled off three unanswered in a span of 2:48 to take 4-2 lead with 21:06 remaining.

Sophomore Nikki Zerna had all three of the goals, the latter two unassisted and the first coming off of an Alyson Bittinger assist.

The Royals would cut their deficit to one on two occasions, the last with 11:21 to play, before Shenandoah closed out the first half on a 6-3 run.

Scranton had one more run in itself, scoring the initial three goals of the second half, only to see SU seal the win by scoring four of the final seven goals of the contest.

Zerna's unassisted goal at 14:31, her fourth of the game, gave the Hornets a 17-12 lead.

Bittinger led the victors with six goals and one assist for seven points with Zerna adding four goals, and both Annie McCorry and Cassie Arndt two goals each.

Abby Zorrilla had a goal and three assists to round out the multiple point scorers.

Fueled by a 25-9 advantage in draw controls, the Royals outshot SU 38-29.

SU goalkeeper Maddie Albernoz had 12 saves and the Hornets scooped up 17 of the game's 32 groundballs.

"Great fight today," Hornets head coach Lindsey Lutz said. "We did a great job today keeping the momentum despite Scranton dominating the draw."

The women take on another team from the northeast Pennsylvania next with a 6 p.m. Wednesday non-league home game versus Marywood.
