Neumann scores six goals to lead Pack WLAX to third straight win

Posted: Updated:

 Leah Neumann netted a career-high six goals to lead Colorado State University-Pueblo Women's Lacrosse to an 18-14 win over Concordia University – Saint Paul Friday at Art & Lorraine Gonzales Stadium.

Friday's win was the Pack's third consecutive victory. They now own a 4-7 record this season with a 2-4 mark in Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference games. Concordia slipped to 8-7 in its inaugural season.

Neumann's (Jr., Naperville, Ill.) six-goal outburst gives her a team-high 28 goals and 38 points on the season. The RMAC's Offensive Player of the Week now has averaged five goals per game over her last three contests thanks to her first career sock trick.

The Pack's co-captain collected a season-high six ground balls. Neumann also added five draw controls to her team-leading total of 46. She caused two of the Golden Bears 35 turnovers.

CSU-Pueblo stumped the Golden Bears in transition. The Pack held Concordia to just 13-of-31 on clear attempts. CSU-Pueblo succeeded on 10 of its 14 clear tries.

Rachael Welzin (Jr., Farmington, Minn.) matched her career-high with eight ground balls. The Pack's co-captain controlled two draws and forced a turnover.

Allison Wurscher (So., Tigard, Ore.) facilitated the Pack's offense with four of the team's 10 assists. Wurscher also added a goal for a five-point day. Playing attack, Wurscher forced two turnovers.

Freshman Ali Doyle (Portland, Ore.) tied a career-high with three goals and four points. Elyse Ingram (Fr., San Jose, Calif.) and Taylor Christensen (So., Colorado Springs, Colo.) each finished with three points. Ingram scored two goals and dealt out an assist. Christensen netted a goal and handed out two helpers. She also controlled five draws, forced two turnovers and picked up three ground balls.

The Golden Bears jumped out to an early 3-1 lead. However, the Pack answered with a 6-0 run that featured goals from Alix Zierden (Jr., Elk River, Minn.) and Sami LaBella (So., Pleasanton, Calif.). Neumann scored twice during this run and Doyle and Wurscher each found the back of the net to put the Pack up 7-3. Concordia stopped the Pack's run with a goal of its own to make it 7-4 heading into the half.

CSU-Pueblo started the second half on a 4-0 run that included three goals in 34 seconds, to push their lead to seven. Concordia answered with 6-1 run to cut the Pack's advantage to 12-10. A 3-1 rush from the Pack would make it 15-11. Allie Butler (So., Mission Viejo, Calif.) joined Neumann and Doyle in scoring during this run.

The Golden Bears would never get any closer than three the rest of the way as the two teams traded goals down the stretch. Daniella Calvo (Jr., Spring, Texas) rifled in her first goal of the season to help the Pack roll to an 18-14 win.

Zierden finished with two goals for the Pack. Maxine Bartholomew (Jr., Elk Grove, Calif.) tacked on two assists for the Pack.

April McDonough (Jr., Frisco, Texas) earned the win for the Pack with six saves. McDonough has evened her record at 4-4. Katie Lottsfeldt took the loss for Concorida with 11 saves on 29 shots.

CSU-Pueblo will conclude its three game homestand with a crucial RMAC contest when they meet Westminster College Saturday at 12 p.m. The opening draw at Art & Lorraine Gonzales Stadium is slated for 12 p.m.
