On Thursday, March 28, the lacrosse team took on Gettysburg University, where it lost its third game in a row and leveled its record at 4-4.
The Lions outshot Gettysburg — the No. 1 team in the country — 33-31, but still fell in the end by a score of 16-5.
After a three-goal scoring spree to start the game by Gettysburg, the College answered all three back in smooth succession. Junior attacker Olivia Cleale threw an assist to junior attacker Talia Bouzakis to score the Lions’ first goal of the game.
Followed quickly by two goals from junior midfielder Alexandria Fitzpatrick, the game was tied up 3-3.
Gettysburg answered with four straight goals and ended the half up 7-3 against the Lions.
Continuing its rally, Gettysburg scored six more goals to extend its lead, but the streak was soon broken by graduate student midfielder Erin Harvey, who scored her ninth goal of the season.
Followed quickly by another goal from Fitzpatrick, that would be the Lions’ last score, as Gettysburg went on to score three more goals before the final whistle.
The Lions will hope to snap their losing streak on Saturday, April 6, where they will face Montclair State University at home.
