Pino nets hat trick in tough lacrosse setback

MANCHESTER — The Merrimack women’s lacrosse team lost their second straight contest to open the season yesterday at Saint Anselm as they fell 17-16. The Warriors led by three with late in the second half but they were unable to put the Hawks away for their first win.

Merrimack (0-2, 0-2 NE-10) will return to the field Saturday at 1 p.m. as they will travel to take on conference foe Adelphi.

“This was a tough loss for us tonight”,” said head coach Corinne Desrosiers. “We played well in the second half to build our lead to three but we played tentative down the stretch and it cost us.”

The Warriors were led offensively by junior Olivia Huie, who scored a team-high five goals and one assist while freshman Aubrie Stouffer finished off the best game of her young career with four goals on four shots.

Senior captain Jenn Pino of North Andover finished off her night with three goals and a assist to go along with seven draw controls.

Tennis team romps

The Merrimack men’s tennis team stayed undefeated in conference action with the dominating 9-0 victory over the Saint Anselm Hawks on Wednesday night. With the win, Merrimack improves to 3-1 overall and 3-0 in NE-10 action, including 13 straight against NE-10 foes.

“I am very proud of how our guys came out and played today,” said head coach Sean Tully. “We put an emphasis on our singles matches and we came through with six victories.”

The Warriors dominated all the singles matches on the afternoon as they won all six in easy fashion.
