GREENSBORO, N.C. – Rookie Audrey Helfenbein scored a game- and career-high five goals in Guilford College's 17-5 lacrosse win over visiting Ferrum College Wednesday afternoon.

Seven different Quakers dent the twine as the home team built a 15-1 lead with 15:26 left in regulation. Madison Iandoli scored two of her three goals during a 7-0 Guilford run that opened the game. Kaitlyn Harley netted the first of her team-high three goals 7:23 before halftime to get Ferrum on the board. The Quakers scored the first half's final three goals for a 10-1 halftime lead.

Helfenbein's goal 61 seconds into the second half opened a 10-goal margin, which started the running clock. Holly Kozak followed with her third and final goal of the game as part of Guilford's 5-0 burst to start the second half.

Guilford's Taylor Campellone matched a career high with five points on a goal and personal-best four assists. Nia Gill scored twice and Abigail Horchar added a goal and an assist. Gill added a game-high seven draw controls, which helped the Quakers to a 14-7 edge in the category.
