Women’s Lacrosse Dropped by Mary Washington

FREDERICKSBURG, Va. – Wesley College's women's lacrosse team fell at Capital Athletic Conference rival Mary Washington, 19-6, on Wednesday afternoon.  The Wolverines fall to 4-9 overall and 0-7 in the CAC while the Eagles move to 11-4 on the year and 4-2 in league play.

Rylee Gould (1g, 1a) and Jorden Lutz (2g) both had multi-point efforts for Wesley while Gould also had a team-high five ground balls and two caused turnovers. Lutz and Jessica Giaccone both recorded four draw controls to lead the Wolverines.

Mary Washington scored the game's first five goals before Gould's unassisted tally put Wesley on the board with 17:39 remaining in the opening period.  The Eagles then ran off six-straight to take a ten goal lead before Kaylee Miller found Alexandra Barbieri with just over a minute left in the half to cut the deficit to 11-2 entering the second half.

After two Eagles goals to open the second, Kirsten Ward scored on a free position and Lutz found the back of the net on the unassisted variety to cut UMW's advantage to nine with 21:56 remaining.

That would be as close as Wesley would get as the Eagles outscored the Wolverines, 6-2 the remainder of the game.

Katherine Cooke and Samantha Brannigan each went a half for Wesley, combining for five saves.

Corinne Wiederkehr led all players with six points on two goals and four assists.

Wesley closes out the season on April 19 against Southern Virginia at 3 pm.
