In a game of city rivals, the Rochester Institute of Technology Tigers (who aren’t technically in Rochester) turned up the heat in a game not to be matched by any other so far in the UR women’s lacrosse season.

With the loss the 1-5 team is now on a five-game losing streak, their only win being their first game of the season against Susquehanna University.

‘The Tigers had some very strong offensive players, many of whom are returning starters,” senior midfielder Amanda Case said. ‘The Tigers played good lacrosse for 60 minutes, whereas we had some breakdowns on both the offensive and defensive ends.”

UR and RIT both struck early in a back-and-forth first half.

At halftime, UR trailed 8-10, determined to make up the deficit. However, UR couldn’t keep up with RIT’s offensive explosion and eventually fell 20-13.

Case led the team with five goals with junior midfielder Andrea DeFilippo and freshman midfielder Liza Maizel each contributing three of their own.

With a long layoff between games, the women had time to mentally prepare for what SUNY Brockport had to offer on Tuesday afternoon.

Unfortunately the women couldn’t keep up with the Brockport attack and ended up losing 1-15.

The women had only a small deficit going into half time but was out-matched with a 12-0 Brockport run in the second half.

In the next games UR will focus on keeping the offensive attack and defensive presence throughout the entire game.

Is it bad? Definitely not! But I found myself continually checking my phone to see how many tracks were left.
