When Northwestern's 31-game winning streak was stopped by Duke a little more than a week ago, it left just one team in Division I women's lacrosse with an undefeated record - St. Bonaventure.

Yesterday, the Bonnies' dream season continued. Nicole Motondo and Katelyn Faas each scored four goals as host St. Bonaventure (12-0, 3-0 Atlantic 10 Conference) upset No. 9 Richmond, 12-10.

With the win, the Bonnies took sole possession of first place in the conference and extended the nation's longest winning streak to 13 games. The loss ends an 11-game win streak for the defending Atlantic 10 champion Spiders (12-3, 4-1).

"This is a huge win for our program, and it really puts us on the map for women's lacrosse," Bonnies coach Tony Zostant said. "I can't even begin to explain how good this feels."

Eboni Preston (Westminster) had 13 saves, including nine in the second half for St. Bonaventure. Preston is 7-0 in goal this season.

No. 2 Northwestern 19, No. 18 Penn State 9 -- Lindsey Munday had a season-high five goals and two assists as the visiting Wildcats (11-1, 2-0 American Lacrosse Conference) defeated the Nittany Lions (5-8, 1-1).
