For the second straight game Lindsey Yenter scored a goal off a pass from Michaela Sullivan, but it was not enough as the Saints fell to their opposition. This time Siena would fall to Monmouth 7-1 in the Northeast conference game.
For the first time this season Siena (0-13, 0-5 NEC) scored a first half goal when Yenter found the back of the net for her second tally in as many games to give the Saints the lead for only the second time this season.
After that score, the game would be dictated by the Hawks. Monmouth (6-11, 4-1 NEC) would score seven unanswered goals starting with Alex Carroll’s third tally of the season. Just under a minute later, Michelle Pieczynski deflected a shot in for her 12th of the season. Carroll and Pieczynski would both score again to conclude the first half.
Mary Drabich replaced Beth Meyers late in the first half but could not stop the barrage of shots from Monmouth. The Hawks scored three times in the closing frame to conclude the scoring for the day.
Siena was outshot 24-5 in the game with two coming from Cory dela Gorgendiere and Megan Bohse. After back-to-back 19 save performances, Meyers would record four saves while Drabich also recorded four in her nearly 40 minutes of work. Monmouth’s goalies Theresa Mathews and Westerweller did not record a save in the win.
The Saints will wrap up the road portion of their 2012 schedule as they travel to take on the Quinnipiac Bobcats on Friday. That game is scheduled for a 3:00 p.m. start.
