After waiting nearly two years for a rematch with Fairfield after falling to the Stags in overtime in the 2019 MAAC women’s lacrosse championship game, Siena scored a measure of revenge Saturday as Mary Soures scored seven goals to lead the Saints in a 15-11 victory on Saturday in Fairfield, Connecticut.
The game was tied 8-8 at halftime, but Soures scored twice in the first two minutes of the second half to put Siena (5-2 MAAC, 5-2 overall) in front for good.
Kaitlyn Dowsett added a hat trick and Kerry Gerety had a pair of assists for Siena.
Fairfield (6-1, 6-1) was led by Elizabeth Rowe’s three goals.
