Lady Warriors edge Eastern for first win of season
ST. DAVID'S. Pa.—Lycoming’s women’s lacrosse team (1-2) edged Eastern University (0-1) on Wednesday by a score of 11-10. It was the first win of the season for the Lady Warriors.
Senior Megan Wallenhorst (Rochester, N.Y.) led Lycoming with three goals and an assist. Junior Sarah Wingerden (Macedon, N.Y.) scored two goals, while senior Heather Suit (Annapolis, Md.) had a goal and an assist.
The game was Eastern’s first of the season and their first since the graduation of All-American Kate Hoy. Nonetheless, the Lady Eagles were the pre-season pick to win the Pennsylvania Athletic Conference, much like the Lady Warriors were the favorites to win the Middle Atlantic Conference.
Midway through the first half, the score was knotted 3-3 until Eastern found the net at 6:06. However, Lycoming reeled off six-straight goals into the second half, including two by Wallenhorst, to secure a 9-4 lead with 25 minutes left. The Lady Eagles scored twice before Wallenhorst hit her third of the day to make it 10-6.
Eastern went on a run, scoring four-straight in an 11 minute span to tie the game 10-10 with 11:37 left on the clock. The teams held each other at bay in the later stages of the game, with Lady Warrior goalie Kristina Peacock (Webster, N.Y.) notching 10 saves on a busy afternoon. Then Lycoming sophomore Christi Karr (Lansdale, Pa.) netted the deciding goal off of a Wallenhorst pass at 6:43 to give the blue and gold the lead for keeps.
Eastern's Erin Reimel had three goals on the day, while Jessie Basch and Grace Griffith had two goals and two assists apiece.
