High Point, N.C. - The two-game winning streak by the Coastal Carolina women’s lacrosse team was snapped Monday afternoon as the High Point Panthers (4-6, 2-0) handed a 17-4 loss to the Chanticleers (4-7, 1-1).
High Point controlled the majority of the game, taking the advantage in shots (38-12), ground balls (20-10) draw controls (17-6) and turnovers (12-20).
High Point had nine different players score goals. Leading the Panthers offensively were Sara Kuhlman with four goals, and Emily Meier and Alec Perry with three apiece.
Timberg opened the game’s scoring, netting her fourteenth goal of the season off a behind-the-net pass from DeLonge less than two minutes into the game.
Meier of High Point responded quickly, scoring less than 25 seconds after Timberg. The Panthers’ offense then went on a roll, rattling off six straight goals, including two by Gaeng and Kuhlman, to take a 7-1 lead with 10:48 remaining in the first half.
White and DeLonge then hooked up to end the Panthers’ steak. White fed a pass in front to DeLonge, who buried the one-timer to tally her eleventh goal of the season and cut the High Point lead to five.
The Panthers would take a 9-2 lead into halftime after scoring two more goals in the final two minutes.
High Point continued to pour it on offensively in the second, beginning the half scoring four straight, including two free position goals.
White broke up the Panthers’ scoring at 22:12 of the second, taking a pass from Timberg and putting one behind Julia Burns.
The Panthers’ offense would not relent however, scoring three more times over the next 13 minutes. Timberg added her second goal at 3:37 of the second from O’Leary. Kuhlman ended the game with one final goal for High Point at 2:47.
The Chants will end their three-game road trip this Friday when they travel to Longwood to take on the Lancers at 3 p.m.
