WHITTIER, Calif. – Whittier attacker Carolyn Mukai found the back of the net seven times and set up two other scores and the home-standing Poets rolled past the Linfield Wildcats 17-4 in a women’s lacrosse match Wednesday night at Memorial Stadium.

Brittani Drost accounted for two goals, scoring on both of her shot attempts. Halee Helgerson (Jr., Milwaukie, Ore.) and Shelby Duarte (Jr., San Ramon, Calif.) also contributed goals for the Wildcats.

Wildcats goalkeeper Erika Phillipo (So., Eugene, Ore.) was credited with 18 saves. Rebecca Kropp (Jr., Beaverton, Ore.) picked up four ground balls and Hana Gould (Jr., Portland, Ore.) scooped up three loose balls. Duarte forced three turnovers and led Linfield statistics with five shot attempts.

Linfield fell behind 10-2 by the intermission and never recovered.
