The Catamounts were overall balanced offensively as five different players scored goals and six Lady Cats recorded points. The Lady Catamounts were led by Sophomore Attack Savannah Chamberlain as the Baltimore, MD. native recorded 3 goals and 1 assist followed by another four point performance by Freshman Hannah Bennett (1 g, 3 a) in her collegiate debut. The Morgantown, WV. Midfielder also recorded 7 draw controls.
