The Lead: Roanoke College used a 27-6 shot advantage and scored four times as they shutout visiting Wilson College.

How it happened:

  • Less than two minutes into the game, Emilee Wooten took a rebound off a save from the Wilson net minder and put it into the back of the cage.
  • Four minutes later, Wooten repeated her effort off a saved shot form Martha Hurley to give the Maroons a 2-0 edge.
  • At the break, Roanoke had a 13-4 shot advantage as the Maroons controlled the action in front of the Wilson cage.
  • In the second half, Roanoke would capitalize on one of their 16 penalty corners as Alexis Lester took the ball from the back post and centered a perfect pass to Lauren Heffron to add to the lead.
  • The final frame would see yet another Roanoke goal when Claudia Roncone took a one-touch pass from Emily Gabrielian to wrap up the scoring on the night.
  • Emma Clark turned away all three shots that hit their mark en route to the shutout.

Up next: Roanoke will wrap up a busy Parents Weekend of events when they play host to Sewanee on Sunday at noon.

Watch: Lester set up Heffron for the goal...
