DETROIT — A weekend visit to the Michigan got off to a strong start for the UC Davis women’s lacrosse team.

Midfielder Elizabeth Landry tallied five goals while freshman Melissa Kellan and senior Carly Voris added hat tricks in the Aggies’ 13-2 nonconference win over Detroit on Thursday at Titan Field.

With the victory, UCD (6-3) snapped a three-game skid.

Landry, a junior who also had an assist and a game-high six draw controls, was on fire to help her team’s overall 13-for-23 shooting.

Kellan shot a perfect 3-for-3 for the day while Voris added three caused turnovers to her three-goal output and sophomore Ellie Delich accounted for the remaining two Aggie scores. Junior Meghan Jordan and sophomore Courtney Neff each tallied two assists.

The UCD defense was equally impressive as Voris, junior Allie Lehner and senior Rachael Mack, a Davis High graduate, each had three steals. The Aggies held Detroit (1-8) to just 2-of-14 shooting.

The locals never trailed, scoring the game’s first five goals of the contest to take control just over 20 minutes into the first half.

Landry assisted Kellan in the fourth minute to open the scoring, before Voris found the net just two minutes later. A moment later, Landry scored her first goal to make it 3-0.

The Titans didn’t get on the board until Annie Mendoza assisted senior Erin Campbell with 5:22 remaining in the first half, and sophomore Kylie Birney scored an 8-meter goal only 29 second later.

The mini-flurry, which cut the lead to 5-2, lit a fire under the UCD defense, as it held Detroit scoreless on 0-for-10 shooting the rest of the way.

Aggie face-off experts did their part, winning seven of eight draws in the second half. UCD extended its advantage with two goals just after he break, both assisted by Neff, and Landry’s four second-half tallies clinched the victory.

Next, the Aggies stay in the state of Michigan to take on the Wolverines on Sunday. The opening draw against the rookie program is set for 10 a.m.
