Pontiac, MI -- On a cold and dreary night, Michigan (9-2, 5-0) took care of business, defeating Oakland University (0-1) by a score of 13-5 at All-American Lacrosse in Pontiac, MI. Delaney Kempner (Bethesda, MD/Sidwell Friends School), Rachel Lary (San Diego, CA/Torrey Pines), and Julie Baskind (Framington, MA/Framingham) all scored two goals to lead the Wolverine offense.

Once the Wolverines built up a commanding 9-2 halftime lead, Michigan used the second half to work on their movement on offense, holding the ball and making several passes before attempting a shot. The patient offense resulted in some beautiful passing and a pair of one-timers. Amy Johnson's (Washington, D.C./Holton-Arms) one-time attempt from Micaela Battiste (Flint, MI/Grand Blanc) was denied by Oakland's goalie before Ani Shekerjian (Bloomfield Hills, MI/Detroit Country Day) poked home her fifth goal of the season off a quick pass from Kempner. Michigan's concerted effort to pass the ball in order to set up shots showed up in the stats as the official scorer credited assists on seven of the thirteen goals.

After playing four games in five days, the Wolverines will enjoy a much deserved break before their next game on Sunday, March 22nd when Michigan State comes to town.

Game Notes: Amy Johnson and Britt Boehm both saw their goal streak snapped at five games...Amy Santoriello remains out of action due to injury and is expected to miss the next two weeks of action...The game took just over an hour to play as the teams agreed to use a running clock.
