The UR women’s lacrosse team rebounded from a tough loss to Vassar College with a 15-7 win on Saturday against Bard College.  

Five players scored two or more goals each for UR.   Freshman Stephanie Ortell, sophomore Maddie Elia, and senior Liza Maizel each scored two goals, while freshmen Zoe Cembrinksi and Brittany Garrison scored one goal apiece.

The true stars of the game, however, were freshman attacker and midfielder Cassie Mahar and sophomore midfielder Lauren Basil.  Mahar had a career best of four goals while Basil added three. 

Freshman Marissa Traina played 50 minutes in goal for the Yellowjackets and only allowed three goals.  She also recorded 10 saves. Freshman Maire Prosak, who played ten minutes in goal, replaced Traina and allowed four goals while stopping just one shot.

Regardless, UR dominated the stat sheet. The ‘Jackets caused 14 turnovers (three by senior Caroline McManus and two each by juniors Lindsey Randall and Sarah Skinner). UR also won 10 draws (two each by freshman Elisabeth Watson and Skinner). 

The win evened UR’s previous Liberty League record of 1-1 to 2-5. The LadyJackets look to continue their hot play Friday when they face William Smith College in Geneva, NY.

Davis is a member of the class of 2016.
