LAST TIME OUT
The Bonnies dropped their Senior Day contest against the visiting Duquesne Dukes, 18-5. Senior Rylee Arnold scored two goals and fellow senior Abby Lagoner scored her first of the season and eighth of her career. On a rainy afternoon, there were 53 total turnovers between the two teams.
The Bonnies five seniors, Rylee Arnold, Kathryn Yoder, Olivia MacDonald, Abby Lagoner and Aniesah Miller are suiting up for the final game of their careers vs. Davidson. Arnold and Yoder, the two senior captains, will graduate as two of the most statistically noteworthy in program history. Arnold ranks 17th all-time in points and goals, and sixth in draw controls. Yoder ranks second in caused turnovers and sixth in ground balls.
A RARE BUSY SATURDAY
Saturday's season finale against Davidson will be just the second Saturday game day for the Bonnies this season. Last year, they played on five Saturdays.
Goalkeeper Savannah Clarke is number 10 in NCAA Division I with 156 total saves on the season and 24th in saves per game. The sophomore tied her career high with 19 saves against UMass' second-ranked scoring offense in the NCAA on April 7 which is just three off the program record of 22 set by Morgan Conroy in 2017.
Clarke hasn't gotten a minute of rest this season. The Mechanicsville, Va. native has played all 960 minutes, which is the most of any goalie in Division I, and makes her one of only five goalies to play every single minute of the season.
Arnold is just four points off 100 for her career. The Macedon, N.Y. native has 77 career goals and 19 assists. She would be the 17th Bonnie in history to reach the 100 point mark.
After being named an Atlantic 10 Second-Team All-Conference defender last year, senior captain Kathryn Yoder continues to cause problems for opposing offenses. The Amherst, N.Y. native is fourth in the A-10 with 32 caused turnovers and her 118 career caused turnovers are 21 behind Emily Lilyea '03 for most all-time in St. Bonaventure history.
HYPE FOR HILL
With the loss of Yoder next season, the Bonnies will need someone to step up and fill the role of lockdown defender—junior Andrea Hill looks like the answer. She caused three turnovers Sunday versus Duquesne and has seven caused turnovers over her last four games. She has 16 caused turnovers on the season but has been an impressive force in A-10 play, causing 10 in eight games.
Ashley Easterday continues to impresses through her first two seasons. With her three-goal, one assist effort against UMass on April 7, she surpassed 50 points for her career, and became just the second active Bonnie with 50 career points alongside Arnold. She reached the feat in 30 career games, which made her the fastest Bonnie to 50 since Mikayla Place '16.
GOLDEN FLASH OF BRILLIANCE
Johnson had a historic day in the Bonnies 18-10 win over Kent State March 3, serving up seven assists and connecting on three goals. Her 10 total points tied the Bonnies single-game scoring record, and she became the first to score double-digits in a game since Brenna Houghton in 2008. She was one assist shy of the single-game record, also held by Houghton. Also, her seven assists are tied for 4th in NCAA D1 for the best single-game performance of 2019.
- Despite their 1-7 conference record, the Wildcats are a talented and tough team. Last time out, they battled VCU to overtime but came up just short, 16-15. They've also lost close battles to George Washington, 12-1, and Duquesne, 20-16.
- On offense, they're led by Braeden Dial, who has 54 total points on 30 goals and 24 assists. In the net, Delaney Guhman has played 901 minutes and has an 11.78 GAA and 43% save percentage on 407 shots faced.
