Generals Pull Away from Women's Lax

Generals Pull Away from Women's Lax

WINCHESTER, Va. – No. 2 Washington and Lee closed out the first half with a five-goal run on its way to a 16-5 ODAC women's lacrosse victory over Shenandoah Wednesday evening.

After Annie McCorry tied it at 3-3 for the Hornets (3-10, 1-5 ODAC) with her free position goal at 18:37, W&L (11-1, 5-0) answered by scoring the next eight goals of the contest.

This run sandwiched halftime as the Generals took an 8-3 lead into the break and then scored the initial three goals of the second.

McCorry, who finished with three goals, snapped the W&L run with an unassisted tally at 20:28.

This goal started a 3-0 spurt for the Hornets which brought SU to within five, 11-6, with 6:23 remaining.

"Tonight was a good experience for us," head coach Lindsey Lutz. "We realized that we can play at a higher level.

"W&L capitalized on our mistakes, which good teams do, but I thought we played well. Now we need to ride this momentum into the remaining ODAC games this season."

Washington and Lee then scored the final four goals of the contest, including three in the last two minutes and two in the final 45 seconds.

The Generals took 36 of the game's 54 shots, had a 23-21 advantage in groundballs and 16-7 in draw controls.

Hornets goalkeeper Kiera Lane had nine stops.

Shenandoah takes to the road this Saturday for a non-league contest at Sweet Briar.
