Framingham’s women’s lacrosse team powered through another week of games, beating the Salem State Vikings, a MASCAC opponent, 19-1 on April 6, and the Eastern Connecticut State Warriors 22-5 on April 10.


They now hold a conference record of 3-0 and an overall record of 10-2 and extended their win streak to 10.


The Rams’ dominance is well-rounded, with three record-breaking performances and countless players quickly rising in the program’s leaderboards.


Framingham handedly defeated Salem 19-1 on April 6 with standout performances from a half-dozen players.


During senior Captain Regan Fein’s highly anticipated return after five games off the field, she assisted on three goals.


Senior Julianna Guzi and junior Hailey Baker each recorded a game high of four assists, which was Baker’s season high. Guzi’s and Baker’s recent performances moved them up to third and fourth, respectively, in the MASCAC ranking for assists.


Junior Molly Lanier shot a perfect 100% for the first time this season, pocketing all four of her shots.


Rounding out Framingham’s victory over the Vikings were senior Hannah Guerin’s and junior Captain Leah Green’s performances, recording five goals and one assist and six goals and one assist, respectively.


The Rams’ goalkeeper, Bella DiMare, earned MASCAC Defensive Player of the Week April 8 for her performances in the 19-0 shutout win over UMass Boston and the 19-1 win over Salem State.


Green led the Rams to an impressive 17-point victory over the Warriors April 10 with one assist and a record-breaking nine goals in one game.


Framingham led 10-4 until Eastern Connecticut cut the Rams’ lead to five halfway through the second quarter. This was the final time the Warriors scored before the Rams closed out the game with a 12-0 scoring run.


Green scored five goals in the first half of the game and propelled Framingham to an early 10-point lead.


She then scored the first goal of the third quarter in the first 3 minutes. This tied her personal best of six goals in a single game.


Teammate and fellow attacker Hannah Guerin assisted Green for her seventh goal of the game, breaking her personal record three minutes later.


The Rams led 17-5 and began to draw the shot clock out and slow down the pace of the game.


Despite their slower pace, Green scored a third consecutive goal and tied the program record for most goals scored in a game with eight. Her teammates celebrated with her on the bench when they recognized her personal accomplishment.


In the closing minutes of the game, Green finished her historic performance with the last goal of the victory and wrote her name in the program’s record books with the most goals scored by an individual in a game.


In the end, Green said it is an exciting accomplishment, but “it was an awesome team win. I was assisted by really awesome teammates, so I really couldn't have done it without them.”


Senior Rachel Erickson scored three goals and assisted on three others during Framingham’s win against Eastern Connecticut, marking a season high for assists. Her performance moved her to fifth in the program’s career leaders for goals.


“It’s good, but it's all my teammates. It's a team effort,” Erickson said.


Her consistent impact on the Rams’ offense has been a huge factor in their current 10-game win streak.


She said, “Believing in ourselves and knowing what we're capable of is taking us to new heights, and I'm excited to see where else we're going to go this season. I feel like we all have confidence in each other, and that's huge for us.”


The Rams host Connecticut College for a non-conference matchup April 13 before finishing the season with their final three MASCAC matchups - Bridgewater State, Worcester State, and Westfield State.


Senior Captain Brooke Phelps said the team is confident going into the final stretch of the season, and each win so far has continued to build onto that.
