PLYMOUTH, N.H. - Senior Amanda Beedy (New Hampton, NH) and sophomore Marcia Wood (Sanford, Maine) scored three goals apiece Thursday, leading the Plymouth State College women's lacrosse team to an easy 16-5 non-conference victory over Elms College at Arold Field.

The victory was PSC's third in the last four days, and improves the Panthers to 9-3 overall. Elms drops to 1-10 on the season. PSC took a 9-1 lead at the half and held a 15-2 advantage with 14 minutes remaining in the contest, and cruised home the rest of the way.
