NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. — The UC Davis women’s lacrosse team is having a great spring break, but it hasn’t been much of a vacation. On the contrary, the Aggies have been putting in work … and it has paid off.

In the past two days, UCD has won the first two contests of a four-game East Coast swing, most recently defeating Iona, 9-5, on Wednesday. The Aggies (8-1) took an 8-2 lead, then held on for their eighth straight victory.

Sophomore attacker Elizabeth Datino scored three goals, while three other Aggies each scored two at  Mazzella Field to send the host Gaels to  2-7 overall.

In addition to Datino’s hat trick, sophomore Hannah Mirza and seniors Christina Corsa and Gina Hoffmire each netted two goals. Corsa led UCD with two assists, one to start each half, while Mirza won a game-high four draw controls, lifting her season total to 39.

Sophomore attacker Kylie Gregory led Iona with two goals.

An early steal by Aggie sophomore Anna Geissbuhler set up a Mirza goal just three minutes into the contest. Gaels’ junior Casey Scully hit an eight-meter shot in the sixth minute to equalize, but UCD a answered with a 4-0 run to extend its lead to 5-1 with 5:02 left in the first half.

Datino scored two goals and assisted Corsa on a third during a 3-0 stretch after the halftime break to push the Aggies to the comfortable 8-2 advantage.

Gregory scored in the 45th and 48th minute to close the gap to four, then Brenna Lade converted a Casey Scully assist to bring the score to 8-5 with 8:55 remaining. However, the Gaels failed to even take a shot for most of the final stretch, as UCD senior Rachael Martinez and sophomore Casey Bowles forced turnovers in the 54th and 56th minutes, respectively, helping the Aggies protect the lead.

UCD outshot its hosts by a 26-13 margin and won 12 of the game’s 16 draws.

The Aggies will complete their road trip with matches at Fairfield on Saturday and Long Island on Sunday.
