Medford Mass. – Dakatoa Adamec scored five goals to lead the Tufts University Jumbos to a 12-9 win over the visiting Trinity College Bantams in New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) women's lacrosse action this afternoon at Bello Field.  Trinity, ranked No. 4 in the nation, falls to 4-2 overall and 2-1 in the NESCAC, while the No. 10-ranked JUmbos improve to 5-1 overall and 3-0 in the league.  Senior attacker Kiley Coffey (West Newbury, Mass.) and sophomore midfielder Annie Lyman (Excelsior, Minn.) had three goals each and senior tri-captain midfielder Allie Barrett (Concord, Mass.) had three points with one goal and two assists for Trinity. Barrett also had a team-high three draw controls and sophomore defender Morgan Strabley (Summit, N.J.) had three ground balls.  Annie Sullivan scored three times for Tufts, while Maddie Norman won six draw controls.

Trinity struck first less than three minutes into the game on a goal from first-year Sophie Berger (Bryn Mawr, Pa.) off the feed from Barrett, but Tufts answered with a quick 3-0 run including two Adamec tallies. Coffey then scored two in a row for the Bantams to tie things up, but the Jumbos finished the half with a 5-2 run to take an 8-5 lead into halftime.  Tufts extended its lead in the beginning of the second half with a 4-1 spurt, but the Bantams came back from an 11-6 deficit on consecutive goals from Coffey, Lyman, and Barrett to cut the Jumbos lead to two with 8:24 left on the clock.  Sullivan scored a Jumbo insurance goal on a free-position shot with seven minutes remaining, and the home team ran out the clock the rest of the way.  Senior tri-captain goalie Zoe Ferguson (Ridgewood, N.J.) made seven saves for Trinity and Audrey Evers had 10 Jumbo stops.  Tufts won 14 of 23 draw controls.
