Bobcats Drop Two on Final Road Trip

Erie, PA- The Lees-McRae Women's Lacrosse team traveled north last weekend to play Gannon University and Mercyhurst College. The Bobcats started off their two games of the weekend with Mercyhurst on Friday.

The Lakers came out firing and were able to keep the Bobcats on their heels with a half-time score 15-1. The second half brought new life for the Bobcats who tacked on four more goals making the final score 19-5. "We really showed what we were made of today by not letting ourselves get down and giving them a game in the second half." Said Coach Porter

The second game of the weekend was Saturday on the campus of Gannon University. The Golden Knights were the 5th Top Ten team of the season for the Bobcats and they came out and showed why. Gannon jumped out early and their defending of the Bobcats transition game was excellent causing the Bobcats to turnover the ball 16 times in the first half.

In the second half the Bobcats showed improvement on all fronts, being able to turn the ball over less, hold Gannon to only 6 goals in the second half while Brittany Dabkowski (Manchester, MD) tallied the teams only goal of the game off of a Margie Lesser assist which made the final score 22-1.

Dabkowski who scored one of the five goals on the day before, maintained her points lead on the team. While Stephanie Jaworski (West Palm Beach, FL) and Margie Lesser (Manassas, VA) also scored two goals in the weekend all in the first game. The Bobcats who will finish their season at home will face Limestone next on Tuesday April 4th at 4:00pm on Tate Field.
