Peterson records a new personal best in the victory over Hofstra | sports

During JMU lacrosse’s recent winning streak, redshirt sophomore spiker Isabella Peterson has been powering the offense. That continued on Saturday, when she scored a career-high eight goals to propel the Dukes (8-4, 2-0 CAA) to a 17-10 road victory over Hofstra (6-5, CAA). 0-1 CAA).

No more than three goals separated either team at any point in the first half. Peterson scored five times in the first half, and redshirt senior hitter Katie Checkosky had four assists. Redshirt junior outside hitter Kacey Knobloch scored for the Dukes less than a minute before halftime, and JMU entered the break 9-7.

After Hofstra’s senior midfielder Jackie Gatti scored to cut the lead to one, JMU scored six unanswered goals to open the game. Peterson added his sixth and seventh career goals to set a new career high. In the fourth quarter, he scored his eighth to tie the single-game program record set by Julie Martinez in 2000.

Redshirt senior goalkeeper Molly Dougherty stopped 11 shots, her third game with double-digit stops this season. Redshirt junior defender Rachel Matey had a career-high 11 tie checks, giving her 165 for her career and outscoring Jess Marion (2000), Elena Romesburg (2018) and Gail Decker (2004) by third place all-time in JMU history. .

Peterson’s eight records gave him 48 for the season, surpassing his previous career high of 45 that he set last year.

JMU returns to Sentara Park for a showdown against Elon on Saturday at 1 p.m. Hofstra travels to Newark, Del., for a battle with the Blue Hens on Wednesday at 4 p.m.
