UR Women’s Lacrosse (URWL) headed northbound Friday riding a three-game winning streak to take on the SUNY Oswego Lakers.
Senior Elisabeth Watson and junior Mara Karpp answered two early Oswego goals to level the score, 2–2, with more than 16 minutes left to play in the first half. But, the Lakers rattled off six more goals before halftime to build a comfortable 8–2 advantage.
The ‘Jackets lost by a score of 14–4, snapping their three-game winning streak snapped.
URWL was back on the field Tuesday to take on the SUNY Geneseo Knights to make up a game postponed last week. The game was never much of a contest as hosts Geneseo stormed out of the gates to gain a 6–0 lead over the ‘Jackets.
The Knights won the game 12–5 and improved their record to 4–3, while Rochester’s recent two-game skid leaves them at 3–4 on the season.
Though UR struggled as a whole, there were a few bright spots for the ‘Jackets. Sophomore Madeline Levy scored four goals, sophomore Olivia Moutevelis had one goal, and junior Jamie Wallisch had three assists, along with fellow classmate Mara Karpp racking up an assist as well.
The story of the game seemed to be told in the the Knight’s overwhelming shot advantage. Geneseo took 34 shots, 24 of those on goal, while the ‘Jackets were held to just 13 shots, 12 of which were on goal.
Though the Yellowjackets probably imagined a better start for themselves, the season is still young. URWL has nine games all of Liberty League conference play left on their schedule starting with back-to-back Friday-Saturday away games. First at St. Lawrence on Friday, then at Clarkson on Saturday. Then they will play rival RIT away before playing at home again on April 15 against Union College.
