The St John Fisher women’s lacrosse team breezed through its spring break trip comfortably defeating Roanoke College 21-3 and Kenyon College 19-2. The team moved to 13 in the rankings with the two wins.
The season opener featured a dominating 10 point performance by the Cardinals leader and best player Jordan Johnson. Johnson scored the first two goals of the game before adding four more to finish the day with six goals and four assists. Mackenzie LeVan and Jamie Wallace added three goals of their own.
Against Kenyon was more of the same for Johnson as she added four more goals and three assists to finish the trip with 17 points. Wallace added three of her own to finish her trip with 7 points. Cori Holbrook and Claire Bollin also scored three goals.
Johnson earned Empire 8 Player of the Week for her strong performance. She feels confident that the team will benefit from the week away in Florida.
“We build a huge amount of our team chemistry on spring break every year off the field because of all the bonding time that we get, which then carries over to having chemistry on the field,” Johnson said. “It’s a business trip first, so winning our games and working hard in practice was our main priority.”
Now the Cardinals return home as they prepare for a more daunting schedule ahead. The first test was supposed to be a game in the Pinnacle in Victor against the University of Rochester, but that was announced today to be cancelled due to the weather.
Instead, Fisher looks ahead to the weekend where the team will matchup with SUNY Oneonta for the first home game of the year at 3 p.m. following the men’s lacrosse game.
