KEENE, N.H. – The Lasell University women's soccer team led Keene State College 3-2 midway through the second half Saturday afternoon, but the Owls scored three times in the final 10 minutes to pull out a 5-3 victory in non-conference action at the Owl Athletic Complex.
Freshman Bobbi O'Guin (Newton, Mass.) and sophomore Serena Speight (Biddeford, Maine) scored goals for Lasell six minutes apart in the middle of the first half to put the Lasers ahead, 2-1, a score that stood at halftime.

Lasell finished with a 15-13 advantage in shots, and a 3-1 lead in corner kicks. Sophomore keeper Angela Sanzari (North Haven, Conn.) made five saves in the loss for the Lasers.
