Galansky, London Help Sagehens Pull Away In Second Half

Claremont, Calif. - Junior attacker Jana London (Chevy Chase, Md.) had six goals and two assists, and junior midfielder Logan Galansky (Denver, Colo. - pictured) had six assists to lead the Pomona-Pitzer Women's Lacrosse team to a 15-12 win over King's College on Tuesday evening at Merritt Field.

With the win, the Sagehens improve to 4-3 on the year while King's College sees its record slip to 2-2.

Goalie Alisa Marino had 15 saves in the first half for King's to keep her team in the game, as the Sagehens led just 5-3 at the break. However, after an exchange of goals in the first five minutes of the second half, Pomona-Pitzer scored five straight goals in a span of 3:26, with Galansky tallying a goal and four assists in that span, and London adding three goals and an assist.

King's stopped the run with a goal from Mariah Masciarelli, but London scored two goals 40 seconds apart, and freshman Sarah Markowitz (Pacific Palisades, Calif.) added another to give Pomona-Pitzer its largest lead of the game at 14-5 with 15:37 to play.

The Monarchs battled down the stretch and closed out the game with seven goals in the last 12 minutes to make the score 15-12, but the Sagehens were never threatened.

Sophomore Alexa Sarussi (Scottsdale, Ariz.) and junior Kaitlin Jones (Minneapolis, Minn.) each had two goals for the Sagehens. Chelsea Manes and Masciarelli each had four goals for King's, while Marino finished with 22 saves.

Pomona-Pitzer will be back in action on Saturday for a game against Berry at 12 p.m.
