TIFFIN -- Following their heartbreaking overtime loss last weekend, the Heidelberg University women's lacrosse team responded with a resounding 19-4 win over Hiram College on Tuesday. Eight different Student Princes tallied goals on the evening, led by a five-goal effort by sophomore Angela Lulejian.

With the victory, The Berg improved to 2-3. The Terriers dropped to 1-4.

Emmy Flottman-Mullen opened the scoring with a goal 37 seconds after the opening draw. Dana Dudley and Jenna Carman added goals as HU lead 3-0 less than three minutes into the contest. Before the period was halfway done, The Berg built an 8-0 lead -- using two goals from Anna Winnicki, and one each from Jen Kovarik, Dudley and Lulejian.

Two more Lulejian goals spaced around a Winnicki tally gave Heidelberg a commanding 11-0 lead.

The Terriers got on the board with a goal just before halftime.

Hiram scored first in the second half before Heidelberg rattled off five straight. Kelly Spence scored on a free position shot before Lulejian tallied her fourth and fifth goals. Flottman-Mullen added her second and Winnicki scored her fourth before Hiram scored again.

Ahead 16-13, Dudley, Bri Casement and Carmen contributed goals before the Terriers closed out scoring.

In addition to the goals scored, Carman picked up three assists and Dudley added two helpers. Alexandra Farmer, Casement, Flottman-Mullen and Winnicki all added one assist.

Hiram's Tayler Hall had three of the four Terrier goals.

Jessica Ballow earned the win, stopping four shots. Farmer had a game-high six ground balls.

Up next, the Student Princes will host Trine University on Saturday. Game time with the Thunder (3-1) is slated for 1 p.m.
