ATLANTA, Ga. - Scoring the first six goals of the game allowed Augustana to take control early and the result was a convincing 19-5 victory over Agnes Scott in women's lacrosse action on Wednesday, February 22 in Atlanta, Georgia. The Vikings jumped out to leads of 6-0 and 12-1 en route to a 12- halftime advantage.
