  Lindenwood won its eighth consecutive game by beating Colorado Mesa.

ST. CHARLES, Mo. -- Fifth-ranked Lindenwood clinched its third straight NCAA Division II conference championship on Sunday afternoon with a 19-9 win over Colorada Mesa. The Lady Lions improved to 4-0 in conference play this season, and they are 22-0 in conference games since moving to the NCAA level.

The Lady Lions scored seven times before the Mavericks even attempted a shot. Jordyn Constance scored twice in a 17-second span to start the scoring for Lindenwood. Savannah Phillips also had two goals in that early 7-0 run. The Lady Lions led 10-3 at halftime and led by double-figures for much of the second half.

Constance had a big game with a seven-point effort. She scored five times and added two assists. Phillips, Erin Abbott, and Melissa Menchella all finished with three goals. Melissa Smith had three points with one goal and two assists.

Abbott was the team's top defender with three caused turnovers and five groundballs. Christine Hehmeyer earned the win in goal after allowing just three goals in one half of action.

Lindenwood improves to 12-2 overall on the season.
