Women's Lacrosse vs. Quinnipiac

The Hofstra Women's Lacrosse team will start a three-game home stand on Tuesday when it hosts Quinnipiac. 
Opening draw control from James M. Shuart Stadium is slated for 3 p.m. Hofstra moved to 3-1 with a dominating 20-11 victory over Fairfield on Saturday. The Pride got several outstanding performances in the game led by six goals and six draw controls from junior Alexa Mattera and 11 draw controls and two goals from junior Darcie Smith. The 20 goals were the most for Hofstra since scoring 21 in a 21-3 victory over Central Connecticut State on March 25, 2017 and the 11 draw controls were the most for a Pride player since Brittain Altomare had 12 against Quinnipiac back on March 8, 2015.

Junior Alyssa Parrella is tops on the squad with 21 points on 18 goals and three assists. Darcie Smith leads the Pride in draw controls (22) and is tied for the team lead in ground balls (10) and caused turnovers (6). Freshman Jess Smith (no relation) has a 8.10 goals against average and a .537 save percentage to go along with 10 ground balls. 

Parrella, who had five goals and one assist against the Stags, now has 122 career goals to move into seventh place all-time. She passed Altomare, who had 118 from 2012-15. She is two shy of sixth place and three shy of fifth place. She also moved into a tie for sixth place all-time in points with 177. She is tied with Becky Thorn, who tallied her 177 from 2003-07.
