Apr. 20: The St. Lawrence University women's lacrosse team saw a 4-3 lead turn into a 6-4 deficit thanks to three straight goals by Union's Kat Egizi, propelling the Dutchwomen to a 10-6 win over the Saints in Schenectady, NY on Friday afternoon.
The Dutchwomen (5-6 overall) are now 5-1 in the Liberty League play, while the Saints fall to 4-2 in the league and 7-5 overall. Six different players scored for the Scarlet and Brown while senior goaltender Paige Powell made nine saves. Union closed with a 23-17 advantage in shots and a sound 23-9 lead in ground balls.
After falling behind 2-0, the Saints rallied with three straight goals to take a 3-2 lead early in the first half. Brigid Hurley, Margie Bailey and Stephanie O'Rourke gave the Saints the advantage, while rookie Soeurette Morley gave them a 4-3 lead with 17:25 to go in the stanza.
However, Egizi would swing the momentum in Union's favor with three goals in a 6:13 span for a 6-4 lead at intermission.
St. Lawrence would remain within two goals at 7-5 thanks to a goal from sophomore Carly VanTassel midway through the second half. However, they would get no closer as Union outscored their opponents 3-1 in the final 16:38 of the game to win 10-6.
