Women’s Lacrosse took to the snowy field at Villanova on Saturday, Feb. 17.

The Wildcats quickly took the lead with seven straight goals before the Bison were able to cut in during the second corner. Tatumn Kohlbrenner ’24 put Bucknell on the board within the first four minutes of the second, and the Bison followed up with three of the final four goals before intermission, leaving the teams at 8-3. 

The Orange and Blue shot ahead in the third quarter, outshooting Villanova 14-8 and outsourcing them 5-2. Allie Boyce ’25 and Emily Baird ’24 closed the gap to 8-6, with the Bison maintaining the two-goal margin at 10-8 after a score from Megan Krestinski ’26 with 26 seconds left on clock in the third. 

Baird scored a career-high of five goals this game, as she pulled the team to a one-goal gap of 10-9 only 2:42 into the fourth quarter. All-Big East attacker Sydney Pappas scored for the Wildcats just a minute later, beginning a 6-goal streak, bringing the score to 16-8 with 2:48 left to play.

Baird, Taylor Kopan ’24, and Caroline Sheridan ’26 brought in another three goals for the Bison, but unfortunately not with enough time to pull ahead for a win.

Villanova finished with a 33-31 shot advantage, while Bucknell led 20-18 in ground balls. Bucknell goalies Colleen Kazanjian ’25 and Julia Dembowitz ’26 both saw time in the net, with Dembowitz making three saves and Kanzanjian tallying four.

Bucknell was back in action on Wednesday, Feb. 21 at St. Bonaventure, and will play next at Graham Field at Holmes Stadium this Saturday at 1 p.m. up against Robert Morris.
