Emerson Foster had six goals and Salem’s Lilly Blair had four as the Roanoke College lacrosse women defeated Virginia Wesleyan last Saturday, 19-1, at Kerr Stadium. It was the season opener for both teams.
The Maroons scored 13 unanswered goals to start the match as they defeated the Marlins in a non-conference matchup. The Maroons got the scoring started early when Blair took a pass from Maddie Stopkoski for the first goal of the season. Roanoke won the next three draws, and 14 of 18 on the afternoon, leading to a trio of goals by Foster.
Roanoke will be back home at Kerr stadium Saturday when the Maroons play host to Christopher Newport at 1:00 pm.
