ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. – April 23 - Kelsey McKeown (Angola, N.Y./Lake Shore) led the Erie Community College lacrosse team with eight goals in its 17-11 win against Broome Community College Saturday at Jim Ball Stadium.
Melanie Sterlace (West Seneca, N.Y./West Seneca East) scored five goals. Sarah Kirchberger (West Seneca/West Seneca West) chipped in with four goals and a team-high six ground balls. Jennifer Buchnowski (East Aurora, N.Y./Iroquois) led the team with four assists.
Broome got it as close as 15-10 after being down 13-5 at halftime. McKeown then scored a momentum-changing goal to bring the game to 16-10 and halt the Broome rally.
"Jen Buchnowski really led the team out there today and Kelsey McKeown was unstoppable on the offensive end," ECC head coach Jim Battin said.
