MOUNT OLIVE -- Riann Daziel punched in a season-high five goals and Mount Olive College turned back in-state foe Catawba, 17-14, in a non-conference women's lacrosse match at Amon Field on Thursday afternoon.
Kara Lyon added three goals for the Trojans, who climbed to 5-4 overall this season. Heather Cockburn, Michelle Scannell, Alysha Kulka and Candace Corkin provided two goals apiece.
