WLAX Weekly Report — March 25

Mar 25, 2014, 5:23 PM EDT

The Delaware Blue Hens are certainly one of the CAA’s hottest teams at the moment in the season, having won six straight games, all of which have come during the month of March.

Offensively, the Blue Hens have been dangerously effective, while Caitlin McCartney, Chelsea Fay — both of whom are now in the coveted 100-goal club at UD — and Casey Lyons have been difficult to slow down at the same time all season. Don’t under estimate the defense either, though, as the unit hasn’t allowed a team to score more than 10 goals in seven straight games.

Weekly CAA WLAX Honors/Notes — March 24

CAA Release

Towson, which is still ranked, No. 19, in the most-recent IWLCA poll, went back over .500 after a huge trip West that saw the Tigers win two games over California and U.C. Davis. This week’s POTW went to fifth-year senior Ashleigh Rohrback, who notched seven goals and nine assists over each contests. The theme stayed with the Tigers, as Katie Leech earned DPOTW recognition for stability and historical reference. The senior moved into No. 9 on the all-time TU list in career draw controls with 90, after recording a total of six last week.

James Madison rookie Betsy Angel garnered the ROTW nod despite her team’s 0-2 week which saw difficult losses to ranked ACC foes Virginia and Maryland. She played so well at the start of the week, that Angel was a named a starter for the first time of her career versus Maryland and proved her worth with two goals and one assist in a 13-10 setback.

-Drexel played its first game in eight days on Sunday, but the Dragons fell to New Hampshire, 12-8. Milan White, Kelly Palace and Alissa Watts each netted two goals apiece, with White adding four draw controls in defeat versus the Wildcats.

-The Pride of Hofstra fell twice last week to respectable foes Temple and UAlbany. Junior attacker Brittain Altomare was a bright spot, registering at least one point over each contest to extend her points streak to 28 consecutive games dating back to last season.

 

– William & Mary lost both of its games last week, although the Tribe still continue to receive production from upperclassmen Ellen Shaffrey and Hannah Clarke. Shaffrey, a junior attacker, totaled one goal and one assist over defeats to UAlbany and Richmond, but also ended the week with eight draw controls overall. Clarke, a senior defender, recorded four ground balls, two draw controls, and two caused turnovers while also adding one goal as well for William & Mary.
