Women's lacrosse loses 20-11 to American

By Andrew Arnao


The women’s lacrosse team fell to Patriot League rival American 20-11 on Saturday. The Bison drop to 2-9 on the season.

Julia Braun ’11 and Madison Hurwitz ’13 each scored three goals, while Katelyn Miller ’14 and Andrea Feldman ’14 scored two goals apiece, and Lindsey Ferro ’14 scored one. Braun also had three draw controls to lead the team.

The Orange and the Blue fell behind 7-1 early, and despite three straight goals from Braun, Hurwitz and Feldman, the Bison trailed 13-6 at intermission.

The Eagles scored seven goals, compared to the Bison’s two, to start the second half and never looked back. American finished with a 37-18 shot advantage. The Bison also had 19 turnovers compared to American’s nine.

“The offense played really well, but unfortunately our defense didn’t play the best we could have,” Sarah Shehadi ’14 said. “Our goal for going into the Lafayette game is for us to come out and play our best on both sides of the field for the full 60 minutes.”

Goalie Alyssa DeLorenz ’11, already the national leader in saves, added 10 more to her total during the game, to give her a total of 139 for the season.

The Bison will face another Patriot League opponent in Lafayette tomorrow at noon, kicking off a four-game homestand.
