Gulls Advance To CCC Championship With 14-10 Victory Over UNE

CCC 2016 Interactive Bracket 


BEVERLY, Mass. – The No. 2 seed Endicott women's lacrosse team defeated visiting No. 3 seed UNE, 14-10, Wednesday evening in the Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC) Semifinals at Hempstead Stadium to advance to the title game for the 11th time in the past 12 seasons.

In a matchup of teams who saw each other one week ago to the day in the regular-season finale, the Gulls and Nor'easters faced a familiar foe as the teams played a back-and-forth first half with Endicott building a three-goal lead to take into the half up 7-4.

After trading goals to begin the second half, Endicott went on a 4-0 run to make it 12-5 with 16:30 remaining in the game and increased that advantage to a 14-8 margin for the Gulls' largest lead on the day at the 9:31 mark.

UNE scored four unanswered goals before the final buzzer sounded, but the deficit was too great to overcome as the Gulls' on-field celebration turned into a locker room bound procession to learn who their championship opponent would be.

Freshman attack Jackie Healy (Northborough, Mass.) erupted for a career-high five goals to lead the way for the Gulls.


  • Whitney stretched her scoring streak to seven straight games with three goals and two assists, while also tying a team-high with four ground balls, and a season-high/game-high four caused turnovers on the day.

  • Freshman midfielder Jackie Neilsen (Agawam, Mass.) registered a career-high five points with three goals and two assists.

  • Sophomore midfielder Olivia Larson (Cheshire, Conn.) won a team-high six draw controls.
  • Junior goalie Maura Grady (Marblehead, Mass.) stopped nine shots as she improved to 6-9 between the pipes.


  • Senior netminder Courtney Kendall (Waltham, Mass.) made 11 saves as she fell to 10-6 on the year.
  • Freshman midfielder Korinne Bohunsky (Eliot, Maine) won a game-high seven draw controls and team-high three caused turnovers to go with a team-high four points (3 goals, one assist).
