Nothing was stopping the Siena Women’s Lacrosse team from a record-breaking day on Saturday afternoon at Hickey Field.  
Not the rain.  Not the sleet.  Not the snow.  And, certainly not Rider as the Saints put together a masterful performance in a 22-4 trouncing to set a program record for the largest margin of victory in the 28-year history of the team. 
The previous largest margin of victory had been 17 goals on two occasions.

It also matched a program record for the most goals scored in a single game with 22 when it notched that total against Hartford on March 13, 2019.  

Siena (6-3, 1-0 MAAC) dominated in nearly every facet of the game, clutching an iron grip on draw controls by winning 26 of 30 as a team.  

Individually, senior Taryn Asselin set a new single-game program history for most draw controls in a game with 15.  

Asselin had tied the mark earlier this season in a win against Le Moyne on March 2 and flirted with the record when she also had 12 in a win against then #18 Army West Point back on Feb. 17.  

Although just in its first season playing women’s lacrosse, the Broncs (6-3, 0-1) had got off to a strong start to their season and featured the MAAC’s top player for draw controls and one of the best scorers in Katie Walsh.  

Walsh had entered averaging 3.13 goals per game and over seven draw controls, but was held to just two draw controls and one goal versus the Saints.  

Offensively, junior Grace Dobrzynski led the Saints with an eight-point afternoon (two goals, and a career-high six assists) while junior Kelly Logue went over the 100 points in her career with a six-point day (three goals and three assists).

Siena led 7-1 at the end of the first quarter, receiving two goals apiece by freshman Olivia Nicholson and senior Rebecca Gilhooley. 
The Saints kept their foot on the gas pedal, outscoring the Broncs 6-2 in the second quarter to take 13-3 lead into halftime.  
Siena stayed unrelenting in the second half, outscoring the Broncs 9-1 the rest of the way.  
Twelve different Saints contributed to the points column including a trio who had hat tricks (Logue, Nicholson and Gilhooley). 
On defense, graduate student Jenna Colabufo had a team-high four caused turnovers and reached 50 for her Saints’ career. 
Rider, who entered averaging nearly 15 goals per contest and ranked second in the MAAC, was held to just nine shots including just six on goal. 
Siena won its fourth straight and for the fifth time in their last six outings while keeping its opponent in single digit scoring for all five of those victories.
