Fredericksburg, Va. -- University of Lynchburg's women's lacrosse team dropped its season-opener Saturday afternoon, a 17-7 decision at eighth-ranked Mary Washington.

The Eagles scored the game's first five goals and never looked back.

Senior midfielder Hannah Creasey (Virginia Beach, Va.) led the Lynchburg attack with her third-career hat trick, the only Hornet player to score twice.

Sophomore midfielder Korinne LeMaire (Rehoboth Beach, Del.) and senior defender Joanna Perry (Ipswich, Mass.) each tallied three ground balls and caused two turnovers to anchor the defense.

UMW's Mackenzie Maguire and Allison Davis each had three-goal, two-assist days.
