In a stunning display of offensive prowess and tenacious defense, Women’s Lacrosse secured a resounding 17-11 victory over Robert Morris this past Saturday. Spearheading the charge was sophomore attacker Alex Nesbitt ’26, who notched a career-high seven points with four goals and three assists, igniting a memorable performance at Graham Field at Holmes Stadium.

From the onset, the Bison asserted their dominance, never relinquishing the lead throughout their home opener. With a balanced offensive effort, highlighted by nine different players finding the back of the net, the Orange and Blue showcased their depth and versatility on the field. Allie Boyce ’25 emerged as a force to be reckoned with, contributing four goals and two assists, while Emily Baird ’24 added three crucial scores to the tally.

The defensive unit for the Bison delivered, stifling Robert Morris and limiting their scoring opportunities. Particularly noteworthy was first year Braeden Siverson’s exceptional performance, securing a career-high of nine draw controls and playing a pivotal role in dictating the pace of the game.

Despite a spirited resurgence from Robert Morris in the latter stages, the Bison remained composed under pressure. With the game hanging in the balance, crucial turnovers forced by the Bison’s defense and a lightning-fast two-goal burst within 13 seconds effectively sealed the victory. Notably, Tatumn Kohlbrenner’s ’24 exquisite individual effort and Boyce’s clutch assist to Nesbitt epitomized the team’s resilience and determination.

With anticipation building for their upcoming clash against Mount St. Mary’s, the Bison are primed to build upon this momentum and produce a season defined by excellence.
