EAST STROUDSBURG, PA – In an NE10-PSAC clash, the No. 13 ranked Pace University women’s lacrosse team squashed the No. 1 ranked team in the country like a bug on Saturday afternoon, humiliating East Stroudsburg, 16-6, on their own field.

The Setters improve to 2-0 on the season, and the humbling defeat drops the Warriors to 1-1.

Junior Angelina Porcello and seniors Jolie Urraro and Sydney Juvelier were an unstoppable three-headed monster, accounting for five, four, and three goals respectively, and combining for five assists, with Urraro and Juvelier leading the team with two helpers each.

East Stroudsburg simply had no answers for Pace’s dominant offense and smothering defense, as the latter dominated every single aspect of the game from the opening draw on.

The Blue & Gold outshot the Warriors by an absurd 38-15 mark, including 31-11 in shots-on-goal, while holding the Warriors to just two free position shots and 27 turnovers. The Setters were also successful on 16 of 17 clear attempts.

With such a decisive road win against the top ranked team, Pace will no doubt shoot up the next set of national rankings, and the Warriors will likely see their hold of the top spot gone.

In their two opening season road wins, the scorching Pace attack has outscored its opponents 35-11.

The Setters remain on the road, next playing at No. 4 Florida Southern College, next Sunday, at 1 p.m.
