The Lasers managed just three shots in the whitewash, one each from juniors Sophia DiPlacido (Hudson, Mass.) and Narissa Libby (Gorham, Maine), and sophomore Ella Contreras (Pawtucket, R.I.). Endicott out-shot Lasell for the game, 13-3.
Cheney got the Gulls on the board in the 32nd minute when she scored on a feed from Hannah Lederman (Natick, Mass.). The lone tally of the second half would come from Caponigro as the midfielder buried her first goal in an Endicott uniform off a free kick roughly 35 yards out.
Sophomore keeper Angela Sanzari (North Haven, Conn.) finished with five saves for Lasell. Endicott keeper Kayla Wentworth (Taunton, Mass.) made two saves for her first shutout of the season.
