Junior Samantha Staino (Brockport, N.Y./Brockport) scored a career-high five goals as the Keuka College women's lacrosse team remained undefeated with a 21-4 win over Lancaster Bible College Friday in Lancaster, Pa.

Staino was one of four Keuka (4-0, 2-0 NEAC) student-athletes with four or more goals. Senior Jennifer Burt (Penn Yan, N.Y./Penn Yan) scored six points on four goals with two assists, while senior Olivia Hudson (Adams, N.Y./South Jefferson) and sophomore Morgan Bruno (Seneca Falls, N.Y./Mynderse) each added four goals for the Wolfpack.

Sophomore Sydney Forshay (Clifton Springs, N.Y./Midlakes) scored three points on two goals with one assist, while classmate Maura Gosson (Syracuse, N.Y./Marcellus) added two assists for Keuka, which held Lancaster Bible (0-6, 0-3) scoreless for 28 minutes and 13 seconds bridging both halves.

Staino scored once, Hudson added back-to-back goals and Bruno added a tally as the Green and Gold led 4-1 with 21:15 remaining in the opening half.

Myranda Kemrer (three goals) pulled the Chargers within 4-2 on a free position shot with 16:26 remaining in the first before Keuka's stingy defense clamped down.

Staino poured in four goals, Burt scored three goals, while Bruno, Forshay and Hudson each added two goals as Keuka went on a 13-0 run to seize control.

The Wolfpack converted on 80 percent of their free position shots, going 8 of 10, led by Staino's three free position goals.

Freshman Maeve Fletcher (Mechanicville, N.Y./Shenendehowa) earned her first career win in net, making seven saves for the Green and Gold.

Keuka hosts Utica College at 7 p.m. Thursday in a non-conference clash at Penn Yan Academy.

The Wolfpack, who went 16-3 and set a school record for single-season wins in 2014, have earned a berth in the NCAA Division III tournament in each of the last two seasons.
