Women Fall to Catholic in Conference Action

Box Score

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Susquehanna women’s lacrosse team could not come up with enough offense to take down Landmark Conference foe Catholic, falling 16-3 on Saturday afternoon in Washington, D.C.

The Crusaders (7-6, 0-2) managed just 18 shots and three goals against the Cardinals (9-3, 3-0), who remain undefeated in league play.

Freshman Michelle McGinniss (Randolph, N.J./Randolph) accounted for two of SU’s three goals. Classmate Katelyn Brower (North Caldwell, N.J./West Essex) finished with six saves in her 60 minutes of action. Five of those saves came in the first half.

SU could not catch its breath in the first half as the Cardinals scored the first 10 goals of the game. With less than a minute to play in the half, McGinniss finally broke that streak with an unassisted score that made it 10-1.

Catholic put together another stretch of goals to open the second half, scoring four unanswered goals within the first nine minutes to take a 14-1 advantage. The Crusaders did score two of the final four goals of the game but the Cardinals had already put the game out of reach.

Next game: April 23 at Goucher – 1 p.m.
