Chargers lacrosse earns semifinals trip after win over Owls

Joe Klaus, Sports Editor

What better way to pick up a playoff win in the conference playoffs than against crosstown rivals, the Southern Connecticut State University Owls?

That is exactly what the New Haven Lacrosse team did Friday night, beating the Owls, in the NE-10 opening round 14-6.

Marina Skelly led the way for the Chargers on the night, netting six and assisting one of the Blue and Gold’s 14 goals. Freshman Annie Acquavita continued her dominant season, earning her fifth hat trick of the year to add onto the offense.

It took the Chargers 60 seconds to find the back of the net and they never looked back in this opening round of the playoffs.

Goalie Gabby Buscemi stopped eight of the 14 shots taken by the Owls.

After the opening round win, the Chargers travel to New York to face off against the No. 1 Dolphins of Le Moyne in the NE-10 Semifinals on May 3.

Back in April, when the Chargers traveled to Le Moyne, they dropped a tough one with a 14-4 loss and are looking to rebound with a win in the semifinals.

The match will be available to stream on Charger Sports Network and on the NE10 Now app.
