Women’s lacrosse advanced their record this week to 2-2 in the Upstate Collegiate Athletic Association’s and 4-5 overall with two wins and one loss this week. UR’s best game last week was their first against Alfred Univeristy on April 6. The 9-1 lead by halftime improved to 15-3, which was the final score, as Alfred was unable to catch up. Twelve players for UR were able to make shots and were led by three goals from senior Sarah Walker and two goals from junior Katie Riegel, who also had an assist. Also, senior Samantha Krawitzky had two assists and one goal, and freshman Heidi Davies had one goal and one assist. Senior Stephanie Bristol was between the goalposts for the Yellowjackets and saved six shots.Throughout the game, the Yellowjackets hammered the opposition with 16 draw controls and 38 total shots on goal. All of the team members were able to rotate into the game, so the win was a group effort. One player commented that “there was a strong showing from both ends of the field” and that “offense effectively executed their plays and the defense never let up for the entire game.” The lacrosse team lost to St. Lawrence University 11-7 in a close game on April 9. The Yellowjackets and the Saints were evenly matched in shots on goal, groundballs and turnover statistics, but both continued a constant fight for the win throughout the game. Each team followed the other shot for shot in the first 20 minutes of the game, but at the end of the first half St. Lawrence managed to get four goals in a row that UR was unable to match to take the lead 7-3. Bristol played the entire game, and had nine saves out of 26 shots on goal. The leading goalscorer for this game was Davies with two goals. Riegel contributed to two goals with one successful shot and one assist.The Yellowjacket’s second win last week was against Clarkson University. The women were able to put in the first four goals within six minutes of the start of the game, scored by junior Elizabeth Sack, Hawley, Riegel and Davies. Clarkson was able to match all of UR’s following goals to produce a final score of 11-7. Hawley played a phenomenal game with three goals and two assists. Sack and Davies followed her with three goals and two goals, respectively. Bristol also played a full game against Clarkson and improved with ten saves out of 21 shots on goal. This week, women’s lacrosse travels to Hamilton College and William Smith College for weekend games. Keller can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
