ENGLEWOOD, Fla. -- The Williams College women's lacrosse team scored the first seven goals of the game Monday night and never looked back, rolling to a 16-2 win over Calvin College at Ann Dever Park.

Wollmers got the scoring started at the 28:58 mark with a free position shot and goal, and Tenbarge followed 35 seconds later with another successful free position shot that made it 2-0. 

One minute later, Fitzpatrick set up Wollmers second goal of the game, then 20 seconds later scored her first goal of the contest to give Williams a 4-0 lead. 

Later in the half, the first years got into the act, scoring four straight goals for the Ephs.
