Women's Lax Drops Road Contest

SELINSGROVE, Pa. - The Shenandoah University women's lacrosse team saw its seven-game winning streak snapped Sunday in a 16-8 non-league loss to Susquehanna.

Shenandoah (10-3) lost for the first time since a two-goal to defeat at Goucher on March 7 as the Crusaders used a big run midway through the first to key the win.

With the Hornets leading 2-1 thanks to two Samantha Sisson goals in the first three minutes, Susquehanna scored the next nine goals to take a 10-2 lead by the 12:22 mark.

Freshman Liz Bereit finally snapped the Crusaders streak by converting a Samantha Donaghy assist 9:31 before halftime.

Bereit's goal, her only one of the day, started a 4-2 Shenandoah run to finish the first.

The run continued to start the second, with Sisson scoring at 13:15 and Mary Kogler at 11:44, before Susquehanna pulled away with the final four goals of the contest.

Sisson led Shenandoah with five goals while Kogler had two goals and Bereit one goal and one assist.

SU goalkeeper Ashley Cross made 16 saves.

Susquehanna outshot its visitors 41-20, had a 35-20 advantage in groundballs and won 14 of 24 draws.

Shenandoah is off until hosting Christopher Newport on Saturday at noon in a USA South Conference contest. The winner of this game claims the regular season title.
