No. 1 UMass-Lowell 4, No. 9 Millersville 3 (SO)
LOWELL, Mass. -- Melissa Effertz recorded her first career hat trick to propel No. 1 UMass Lowell to a 4-3 shootout victory against No. 9 Millersville on Sunday afternoon at Cushing Field. The River Hawks won the shootout, 3-2.
The win pushes UMass Lowell back to .500 overall at 1-1, while dropping the Marauders to the same record.
"A win is always a good thing to have and Millersville is a tremendously tough team," head coach Shannon Hlebichuk said. "We were gritty; I thought we used our bench more than we have in the past few years. We had a lot of fresh legs and a lot of young players that got some minutes today--and that's great for the future of our program."
