PHILADELPHIA – The Felician University women's lacrosse team set a program single-game scoring record despite its 25-8 Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference loss to host Holy Family University on Wednesday afternoon at Tiger Field.
Felician (0-8, 0-6 CACC) is a second-year program. Prior to Wednesday, it had never scored more than three goals in a game. On Wednesday, the Golden Falcons surpassed that figure with 13 minutes gone by in the contest.
Golden Falcon freshman midfielder Andrea Hill (Monroe, N.Y.) set individual single-game school records with six goals and 11 draw controls.
