The Stetson Lady Hatter Lacrosse team opens their 2011 season with a home game against the University of South Florida Bulls on Saturday, February 12th on Rinker Field in the heart of the Stetson University campus. The Bulls were on the board first about three minutes into the game, but the Hatters were quick to follow with their first goal by Daffnee Cohen. The Hatters and Bulls went back and forth again after USF answered in less than a minute taking the lead again. Victoria Irizarry was the second Hatter of the day to score a goal and tied the game at 2. From that point on, the Bulls finished the first half with 8 unanswered goals going into halftime with a 10-2 lead. The second half began with USF scoring four goals in the first ten minutes of the half before the Hatters were back on the board. Haleigh Cronin scored her first goal of the game with 20:35 left in the game. USF scored four more before Daffnee Cohen scored her second goal for the Hatters making the score 18-4 with 7:21 left to play. The Lady Hatters finished strong as Cohen scored another goal for her first hat trick of the season. Alex Prosper scored the last goal of the game for the Hatters making the final score 19-6. It was perfect afternoon Florida day for a lacrosse game and the Lady Hatters did all but give up in this hard fought game against the Bulls. The Lady Hatters have two weeks off before their next game. They will host Palm Beach Atlantic University on Saturday, February 26th at 3:00 pm on Rinker Field.
