Women's Water Polo headed into Wednesday afternoon's game against Oviedo with revenge on their mind and it didn't take long to serve as the Panthers battered the host Lions, 16-5. The victory was the Panthers' first over Oviedo and they made sure there was no doubt as they amassed 14 goals by halftime. Senior captain Heather MacNeil led the charge with six goals, sophomore Jillian Goulden added three and sophomore Jacqueline James chipped in a pair as well as the Panthers improved to 2-1 on the season. Goulden got DP on the board just 22 seconds into the game as her shot caromed off the crossbar and into the goal for a 1-0 lead. Heather MacNeil reeled off a pair of goals and Jacqueline James painted both corners with superb shots into the back of the net for a 5-0 lead. After Oviedo got one back, Meredith Canty added DP's next goal with a man advantage to take a 6-1 lead into the second quarter. Just 12 seconds in, MacNeil went back to work with the first of her four goals in the quarter and followed up a mere 27 seconds later with a dart into the upper left 90. Jillian Goulden and Heather MacNeil alternated goals twice to build the lead up to 12-2 before sophomores Emily Kliewer and RIkki Price struck the twine 19 seconds apart for a 14-2 lead at the half. Sophomore Megan Hallson notched DP's lone goal in the third quarter and junior Allie Magrino finished off the night with a fourth quarter score for the 16-5 final. Marissa Goodrum tallied nine saves and five assists in the first half and Jessica Robinson closed out the second half with four saves between the pipes. Emily Kliewer led the Panthers with six steals, Jillian Goulden picked up three more and Rikki Price finished the night with three assists. DP will take on Miami Gulliver Friday morning at 10:00.
