A Northeast blizzard was not enough to prevent the Rutgers women’s lacrosse team Sunday from cruising to its first victory. The Scarlet Knights defeated Manhattan, 15-5, in their home opener after the start of the game was postponed for over 24 hours due to severe weather. The second half began with immediate offense when senior midfielder Stephanie Anderson tallied a goal in the first 32 seconds of the second half to complete a hat-trick and make it 6-3.

The start of a new season brings uncertainty for any collegiate program. Luckily for the Rutgers women’s lacrosse team, a noticeable amount of stability remains.

The Knights’ defense returns its core group and should begin to develop chemistry immediately.

Rutgers head women’s lacrosse coach Laura Brand-Sias made it very clear how she felt about Saturday’s loss to Loyola (Md.). “We went in feeling like we should win the game, and I felt like we should have,” Brand-Sias said. “I’m not going to go into a game and say, ‘Oh, I’m happy that we performed well against a highly ranked team.’ I really don’t care who we play — I think we should be coming out with the win.”

The Rutgers women’s lacrosse team has had problems with consistency all season. That was evident in the Scarlet Knights’ last game against Loyola (Md.), when the Knights failed to capitalize on strong play in the first half.

While the Knights (9-5, 4-2) recorded 13 goals — one of their highest scoring outputs of the season — that mark came from 32 shot attempts.
