The Rowan lacrosse team absolutely dominated against Ramapo College in their first NJAC game of the year, taking down the Roadrunners by a score of 22-1 on Saturday, April 15.

The victory improved the team’s record to 9-4 and was Rowan’s largest margin of victory and the most goals scored in a single game by the team since 2019.

From the jump it was all Rowan, as they scored their first eight goals in the first eight minutes of the game. The Profs finished with 11 different players recording a goal in the stat sheet.

Freshman attacker Elaina Corson was the leader in the stat sheet for the Profs after scoring four goals and racking up three assists. Her sister and senior captain midfielder, Julianna Corson, spoke about the importance of 11 players scoring in the victory.

“It showed how deep our bench is and it showed how many people can make a difference in games,” Julianna said.

Not only does the Profs’ deep bench help provide players with rest without sacrificing the performance on the field, it provides the team with a boost of energy during games. Even from the sidelines, the team is constantly cheering one another on and picking each other up.

This type of chemistry has led to some good play from the Profs so far this season. Head Coach Lindsay Delaney believes that when the team is playing their brand of lacrosse some of the best results, like today, follow.

“They played their style of game from the start of the game and they showed pure dominance,” Coach Delaney said. “There was definitely a distinction between them and the other team and that was the goal. They played their game to have fun with their style of lacrosse and they did that to get the win”

Saturday’s game was a great bounce back win for the Profs after suffering their first conference loss of the season against No. 4 The College of New Jersey (TCNJ) by a score of 14-6 just four days earlier.

“I think this was a huge confidence booster. The game against TCNJ, we did not really do things the way we would have liked to,” sophomore midfielder Molly Green said. “We kind of came in here and took care of business that we know how to do.”

The Profs will look to stay hot as they host Farmingdale State on Wednesday, April 19, for the team’s Senior Night.
