Women's Lax Outlasts Lebanon Valley

Women's Lax Outlasts Lebanon Valley

WINCHESTER, Va. - The Shenandoah University women's lacrosse team earned its second win of the season with an 11-10 non-league victory over Lebanon Valley Saturday afternoon.

Shenandoah (2-3) jumped out to an 8-1 led in the opening 17:28 of the contest and then had to withstand a furious LVC (0-5) rally.

The Dutchmen, who trailed 9-2 with 8:17 to play in the first, scored eight of the game's final nine goals to cut the deficit to one, 11-10, with 4:59 remaining.

Only an Alexandra Simonson goal, unassisted when the Hornets were up a man with 18:51 remaining, broke up the LVC rally.

Simonson's goal held up as the game-winner as Shenandoah goalkeeper and the Hornet defense came up big in the final five minutes of the game.

After Kara Strack won the ensuing draw following the goal to make it a one-goal game, Lebanon Valley elected to hold the ball out front until the clock reached two minutes.

Twelve seconds after LVC began to attack the goal, Jordyn Miller forced a turnover on the doorstep, picked up the resulting groundball and started a successful clear which put the ball 90 yards from the Hornets goal.

SU turned the ball over in its offensive end, but another forced turnover, this one by Brittany Arndt, gave the ball back to the Hornets.

Arndt successfully cleared the defensive zone and Shenandoah was able to kill the remaining time on the clock for the win.

Miller, Cassie Arndt and Abby Zorrilla all had two goals in the win.

Card made 10 saves, including four in the second half.

The two teams split 44 shots and 42 groundballs. SU had a 14-9 advantage in draw controls.

The Hornets take to the road on Wednesday for a 4 p.m. non-league contest at Marymount.
